Photo essays: Your stories in pictures
My name is Aleksander Allen, I'm a Russian immigrant, born in Moscow, who moved to Texas four years ago.
I'm seventeen years old, and love photography and travel. Right now I'm hoping to pursue a career in journalism. This picture was taken during the freezes in southeast Texas. This year, due to the effects of climate change, Southeast Texas experienced temperatures below 40 degrees. Such low temperatures have not been seen here since 1993. The freeze has caused school shutdowns, as well as many fatal accidents and wrecks. Despite all that, the people, who have not seen such snow for years, were very excited.
