The winter of 2011 was pretty brutal for NYC. I’m from WNY so I wasn’t a big deal to me. But people in the city had a rough go of it. Just watch the people in Jamie Stuart’s Idiot With A Tripod.
So when I saw these ladies trying to dig out their car on 77th Street with these tiny snow shovels, I had to get out the HD Camera. I stuck my Kodak Zi8 out the window of my apartment and captured their efforts. I love how they keep trying to drive out with the job not nearly done.
I did took liberty in the edit to make it look like someone else snaked the parking spot from them, just as they were about to re-park. In reality, I think they were clearing the spot for a friend or family member.
