Midnight at midtown

Midnight at midtown

After photographing the wedding of Jenny and Todd at the Anchorage Museum, I stopped by the Loussac Library to photograph the fountain. The lights are pink for the month of October in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I was not sure when winter would set in. I wanted to get a nice long exposure on the flowing water. While I was there, I took the typical view, looking from the west side of the fountain to the east, which provides for a nice black background. I switched to this angle because I wanted to give the fountain some context — it is, after all, located at the library. And the Loussac itself is a neat architectural feature, replete with great lines and curves. This image was created from seven individual photos, stitched together using Photomerge in Photoshop CS2.
