5th and Mercer, Seattle
year 2, day 77

Glorious sunrise again today. For the second day in a row I have gotten off the bus a stop early so that I could take pictures of it. A careful look at this shot will note that that the background is formed by the sky, the reflection of the sunrise in the windows of the Billl and Melinda Gates Foundation Building and a passing car with one red tail light showing. Some days you have to use what you've got to make a good backdrop, LOL. A shot from nearly the exact same spot late last year. http://365project.org/shantwin/365/2011-10-26.

A fast moving day at work with a staff meeting to begin the day and grabbed a ride home with a coworker. It's amazing how much quicker I get home when I take the bus ride out of the picture, but then I have fewer opportunities to take pictures and I don't get a walk in. But more time with the family, which meant going to the grocery store tonight, but I'm sure these are the moments I will miss soon. After all the boys are only 3 and a half years away from being done with high school and I'm sure it will go quickly.

edit: SOOC but for the crop (but the camera was on sunset mode which brings out the warm tones)
Pretty colors! Love the silhouette!

Very delicate. I like. But i think this ended up a little bit too dark. You barely can see the third talon.

Beautiful and very interesting reflections. Like the three differently focused grain heads
