encompassing the square

i have been working on this project since january (and it will continue throughout the year) but i am looking to have a little interaction with my work in hopes to help others see a little bit more than they are used to. i have taken a series of photos of the salt lake Temple, downtown salt lake city, but these images are unique in the fact that my camera was never pointed toward the temple. these are all single exposure shots of the reflection of the temple.

IS IS WHERE YOU COME IN: the first person to go find where these shots were taken gets a free print of your choosing (and i have a TON more like these in great variety). i would like you to take a photo with your phone in the location it was taken (i included a map with drop pins in the general areas), emulate the reflected image of the temple the best you can, and send it to me via email (nathanielrayphotography@gmail.com) or tag me on instagram with your image (n8edwards). some of these images are pretty obvious, but others may be a little more of a challenge.

there are millions of images of the salt lake temple out there, and millions people have been to temple square, but i feel there is so much more to experience and it is often overlooked. this project, when it is finished, will hopefully change the way we view the salt lake temple and the surrounding areas, and if we are so lucky, it may change the way we view life, for the better.
