Snow Globe

we've been up in beautiful alaska this week shooting our first wedding in the snow, it was quite magical. i would like to share an excerpt from the poem "the paper weight" by gjertrud schnackenberg, which seems quite fitting with this photograph. 

we look at them just as the winter night

with its vast empty spaces bends to see

Our isolated little world of light,

covered with snow, and snow in clouds above it,

and drifts and swirls too deep to understand.

still, I must try to think a little of it,

with so much winter in my head and hand.

*please listen to this lovely poem in it's entirety below….
