Day 44 – 12/19/10 – Dancin’ In The Snow

I finally managed to get out and take some snow shots.  I’d planned on going to the park and hiking through the woods.  I changed my mind at the last minute and decided to work on an assignment for one of my projects instead, to make an image that “shows a sense of distance”.  There were several areas around town that I’d driven past recently which seemed promising.

I climbed up to an old railroad to take some of the typical receding-railway shots.  I’d chosen not to take my tripod though, and the shots didn’t come out as sharp as I’d have liked.  I ended up taking some shots of the shoveled sidewalk stretching into the distance when I came across this guy dancing away at the end of the sidewalk.  When one of his dance moves mimicked the sign he was standing beside I had my shot for the day!

I’m not particularly thrilled with the composition, but I think I’ll use it for my assignment anyways.  It definitely gives a sense of distance!  I do have two other contenders for the project though, both from today’s walk.  What do you think?

Snowed Over:

  1. I love how the first shot directs the path in which you (or, at least it did for me) view the photo! The dancing guy is just a bonus to the shot! 😀

    Thanks guys! Heh, Lisa it’s been between 10 and 20 here most of the week, with even colder wind chills. I’ve spent time in Scottsdale, I’m pretty sure native Arizonans freeze solid at those temperatures! 😉
