I grabbed this shot on a cold, snowy morning in Denver, CO recently. I love getting out and shooting in the early morning for a lot of reasons, but one of the primary reasons is that you can capture scenes without all the busy-ness of the day. Things are still quiet and calm and you can enjoy your creative time without the distractions of lots of cars or people walking into your shots. :-)
For this shot, I was really drawn in by the long colored reflections of the various lights shining on the wet street. I just love how those look. I was also making my way towards Union Station, which has that wonderful “Travel by Train” sign in bright neon on top. I just love that sign. Plus I love train stations, so it’s like a double-dip of awesomeness, first thing in the morning!
