Photo of the Day (1-14-09)

There is an impressionistic, dreamy quality about jrodjmanjr’s shot of the ice rink at Union Square in San Francisco. The two people in front, however, draw one onto the ice. Can’t you feel the movement of the foot pushing out, the swing of the red sweatered arm and the glide forward?

The fact that they are anonymous makes them like anyone and everyone you’ve ever seen moving in and out of the shadows of an outdoor skating rink at night. The back lit glow is also wonderful.
