|"The Snow Family"
I don't know how long this woman was on the phone, but as she talked, her daughter was busy building a family of snowpeople beside her. (I had visions of a virtual army appearing in the next twenty minutes or so.....)
The snow in these pictures fell on a Saturday - the same day these pictures were taken (beside the Tamagawa-josui canal in Tokyo), and the snow family picture was taken the next afternoon in Sugamo. Copyright 2006 by Lyle (Hiroshi) Saxon, Images Through Glass, Tokyo
