We awoke to a light dusting of snow this morning. Quite an event in Portland. This lovely illustration by emma laiho makes me think of snow in a different way. Beautiful brightness covered with a layer of white. Plus it reminds me of the animals at the zoo, unaccustomed to such a thing. I've never been a huge fan of zoos, in part, because of things like this. Big cats in the snow just feels odd and sad to me. I think she's captured that tension nicely.
