I had a very difficult choice between color and b&w in this series of photos. The snow becomes the main focus of the story in b&w. Details are hidden in the shroud of snow, snow lies on the ground, snow clings to fences and walls, snow fills the airspace. The second protagonist of these photographs is not obvious, but it is very important; it is the light. The light of lanterns, the light reflected by flakes of snow, the light of windows, the illumination of buildings, the light of headlights.
Color photographs are perceived differently. Only at first glance does the color in these photos seem poorly expressed. In fact, there are many color details: red stop lights, yellow trolleybus stop, green traffic lights. The details in color make the pictures look warmer.
