|Photographs don't always have to be all about the subject(s) captured in the image. Sometimes they simply look cool.
This month's image is one of those. I love the colors, the shapes, and the way it almost appears 3D even though it isn't.* Aside from its aesthetic, it's also just playful and fun.
I'm not going to go into all the technical details of what went into capturing this photo; it's best to preserve the mystery. However, I will tell you a little about the surroundings...
One night in January, the bustling metropolis slows to a crawl - muffled by a massive snowstorm - and in the middle of it all people party in bikinis. You see, there's a hotel in midtown Manhattan that has a rather unconventional lobby. It's basically made up of a sauna (both steam and dry), a swimming pool, and a bar with a service window that opens directly to the pool. Add a couple of great DJs, and the party throws itself.
*OK, I just put on a pair of the old-fashioned blue/red 3D glasses and I guess because of the mix of blues and reds in the image it actually does have a bit of a 3D effect!
