Inspired by Barry's passion for his community, I've decided to take part in the My Town Friday Photo Shoot-Out, a project begun to get bloggers out into their communities and showing them off to each other. I figure there is no greater way to get to know my new home of Juneau, Alaska!
This week's theme was suggested by none other than the people behind the madness, the My Town Friday Photo Shoot-Out team. Check out the central blog here for a full list of participants as well as instructions on how to get involved yourself!
For my photo study of a building, I chose the Ice Castle at the community park at Twin Lakes. Years ago, before either Kip or I were in Juneau, the community got together to build what I consider to be the best playground in the history of playgrounds.
It has an ice castle.
What playground is better than that?
Not having any knowledge of or experience with photo studies, I played this one by ear, choosing to shoot my subject at different points during the day. I hoped to find the different moods evoked at different times by this stately building. I have my own opinions about how the project worked (coughcoughutterfailurecoughcough), but I'll leave the photos captionless this week so that you can experience the Ice Castle yourself.
(I know I promised no captions, but I highly suggest clicking on this one to enlarge it!)
See you next week with some silhouettes!
