The snow day that so many teachers, and yes students too, have been hoping for finally arrived today thanks to a beautiful overnight snowfall. Snow days mean a relaxing morning followed by a little bit of snow clearing and then an afternoon of catch-up activities. On this afternoon I decided to catch up on a few videos I've wanted to watch.

Wow is the first word that comes
to mind. First of all, I found her photographs to be stunning.

story of this Nanny/Street Photographer's life. It seemed to be a sad
life- one without many real connections, other than the ones she made through
the lens of her camera. Perhaps it wasn't the happiest of documentaries, but
