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?
