I'd like to go on record: Do not attempt to drive from New York to Boston on Christmas Eve afternoon. It was over seven hours, which is tough to achieve over 240 miles unless you're on a burro.
Although it was infested with traffic, the Merritt was stunning (as usual) in the misty, fading winter light.
These below two remind me of calotypes, which were a very early form of photography developed by Henry Fox Talbot in the 1830s. They tended to be a bit out of focus, with soft edges, but they're some of my favorite examples of photography.
