January: Photo of the Month

january2009

January was a cold one! Lot's of fog, frost and scraping windows. The mountains lost lots of snow and the what was left was a hard sheet of ice that kept me off my snowboard for almost the whole month. Boo hoo.

I missed so many photo opportunities this month. I would drive into work and the whole city was blanketed with a doughnut like ring of fog with the sun sprinkling powdered sugar on top of the skyline. However, I didn't capture any of that. I was lame and kept leaving my camera at home.

So long story short, I was at Gasworks park preparing for a chilly family photo shoot and I decided to walk around before we met up. I always think of Gasworks as the cliche Seattle photographers go to. I mean, that's why I was there. It's always a cool place to shoot. So I did my best to shoot a "not so cliche Seattle skyline" photo. I used some old piping to frame the subject and it turned out great! I really like this one and I haven't seen a shot like it...yet.
