Andy Meessman's Winning Photograph

Photography Contest Winner - Andy Meessmann

June 26, 2012
Congratulations to Norris Design's Andy Meessmann who received first place for an exterior photo he submitted to the Doors Open Denver Photography competition.

Arts & Venues Denver and the Denver Architectural Foundation invited the public to focus on their favorite Denver architecture during the 4th annual Doors Open Denver Photography Contest. The theme for this year’s Doors Open Denver sites was “Denver Landmarks.”

The Doors Open Denver Photography Contest is a chance for individuals to find and photograph their favorite sites, post their images and have them reviewed by a panel of judges and the public. The judges select a Grand Prize winner, and 1st and 2nd place entries in each category: Interiors, Exteriors, Building Details and Denver Landmarks.

Here's what Andy had to say about his submission:
"I submitted this photo in a contest hosted by the Denver Office of Cultural Affairs, which earned first place for the exterior category among several great photographs. Other categories included interiors, building details, and Denver landmarks.

While my true passion is photographing the natural environment, urban night photography reveals endless movement and details to discover in every photo. Plus, I can ride my bike to these locations. This particular shot was taken on a brisk week night at Larimer Square in Downtown Denver. I was originally drawn to the Colorado State flag blowing in the breeze, but later discovered several textures of lights and movements along the street. My favorite aspect of this photo is the overhung lights reflecting off the cars, which are ironically motionless while the pedestrians dominate the movement in the frame."

Congratulations Andy!
