Photos of the year - Wayne Glowacki 2013

Photographer's choice: On a dry cold sunny January morning in 2013, I got an assignment to get a picture of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights at The Forks to run with a story in the paper the next day. The museum has been a very popular subject to photograph by our staff over the years, so I thought a different way to frame the building would be my goal. After walking around the museum once, I noticed the frosted windows on The Forks parkade. Going up the stairs I found about a 5 cm clear view through one of the panes near the floor. I got down low and used a small aperture setting on the camera so the frost and museum would be in focus. January 2, 2013  (WAYNE GLOWACKI / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS)
