'A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder.'
When we were all kids, snow days were about sledding, snow angels, building a snow man, hot chocolate, skating and making money shovelling driveways. Most of these activities occurred outside, in the actual snow... As we get older, for many of us, snow days have become about about comfort food, binge watching Netflix and then heading back. (if we ever left) our beds.
One of the reasons I love the work of JayBee from Frisky Frolic, is his ability, to magically take me visually, and emotionally back to the weightlessness I felt as a kid. A time when when life was an adventure, risks were frequent, and when our imagination was the part of our brain that took up the most of our time and attention. I shared a few of the images from this set a couple of years ago, but Jay graciously sent on a few more to finish the story.
I must admit, although I have skinning dipped in the summer, and have frequently ran out into my backyard naked in the darkness of night, I have never ran out into the snow during the daylight hours. Frisky Frolic's imagery may not get me to do so, but certainly has me imagining how incredibly fun and exciting it would be!
Jay is in the middle of a site revamp, but in the meantime, be sure to check out his Instagram
'This wasn't a planned shoot. One of my regular models was stopping by that morning to pick up something, and he had another friend with him. So I said, do you guys mind running naked through the snow so I can get a few pics. One of these right moment, right time, and we captured it.'
