Yup, snow really looks like those ornaments.

My first good opportunity to try a reverse macro shot of a snow flake. Unfortunately I had to wait til morning when it was no longer snowing. I'd really like to single out one snow flake to make the shot less chaotic. However it is neat to see why fluffy snow is fluffy. Look at all that space in between the flakes.
I learned about the reverse macro technique from the works of [link]
billyunderscorebwa. He's got some amazing snow shots as well.
People look at you really funny when you're bent over the hood of your car taking pictures of snow. I guess you just kinda have to roll with it and ignore their confusement. Confusement is now a word.
Side-Side note: I bought a film camera for $20! It's an old Chinar DSL, not to be confused with a dSLR, this camera is very analog. I also got some rolls of expired film for free. I can't wait to see how it all pans out. The main reason I bought it was for the two lenses it came with. They both fit on my Pentax dSLR. A sweet 50mm prime f1.9 lens and a 80-205mm zoom lens. Generally very happy with my camera situation at the moment. Just wish I wasn't so hungover, I'd be much more motivated to try it all out.
