Winter has taken hold of the Pacific Northwest. Our neighbors to the south, the Portland/Vancouver area, got buried under a lot of snow.

The steam plant below the Capitol buildings is a favorite subject. This was taken around the same time as the above image, but due to the curve of the lake, the steam plant is in shadow. If I remember correctly, it was right around 19F that morning, and I feel this image captures the cold in the air.
The final image I’m going to highlight for this week is a Black & White I did. On the Capitol Campus, there is a Korean War Memorial titled “The Forgotten War.” I’ve finally created an image of it that captures the impact the memorial has on me when I see it.
