Photo of the Day

Light at the Museum

"When I shoot street photography, I'm always looking for interesting light, juxtapositions, and emotions that will make a good picture," says Your Shot member Jason Maloney. "I was drawn to the background in this photo, as it is a well-known piece of Denver on the outside of the Denver Art Museum."

Maloney says the sliver of light looked very dynamic. "I felt it would make a great photo. I wanted to wait for just the right moment, though, and after a few passersby and groups of people, I saw this single man walking along."

Maloney's picture recently appeared in Your Shot's Daily Dozen.
