    It was a rainy and cold day on February 2nd in Westchester. Everything was dark and monotonous. When I looked at the tress in my yard, there was a red bird staying on the branch. He was the only color, bright red in the entire scene. I immediately took my camera and shut it.

    This photo is from early in my photography journey. I attended one of my first Seattle-based photography meet-ups and after the meet and greets, we split into small groups to find some compositions. I had been playing around with long exposures and light trails and the bright lights from the Great Wheel caught my eye. I spent a good amount of time that evening making new relationships and capturing this image.
