Are these your photos?

Today I, along with probably thousands of other bloggers, received an e-mail from a guy named Todd Bieber (presumably no relation to Justin). After the December blizzard, Bieber went cross-country skiing in Brooklyn's Prospect Park. I'll let him tell his story:

Not sure if this is for real or not, because Todd Bieber isn't just some schmoe:
Todd writes and directs videos - mostly comedy and documentary, or some combination of the two. He is currently the guy in charge of UCB Comedy, the video arm of Upright Citizens Brigade. Previous to this he worked at the Onion News Networks as Footage Coordinator, Director of Photography, and Contributing Writer during their Peabody Award Winning year. His comedy work has been featured in a bunch of film festivals including Sundance, SXSW, Tribeca, and AFI. His various viral videos have been watched over 23 million times and have been featured on New York Times' website, Entertainment Weekly's website, Huffington Post, and his Mom's Facebook Wall.

But who cares? The video is beautifully done (as are the photos), and for its 3:05 running length, I was transported -- able to forget my workload, Sarah Palin, and Congressional Republicans.

I did, however, make him promise to keep me posted on whether he finds the owner of the roll of film.
