• Short Summary

    Washington and New York under snow and a camera that takes sharp photos in foggy conditions.

  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    Several scenic shots of Washington and New York, United States of America, under snow. Mostly park scenes - good shots of Central Park covered in a thick blanket of snow. People wander about the parks and feed birds.

    Various shots of a new camera that can take sharp photographs in foggy conditions using infrared rays. Photographs of the mist-covered New York (?) skyline taken with a normal camera are compared with those taken by the infrared camera - the contrast is much sharper.
