Late Saturday afternoon I left my home to shoot some abstract images for a contest on flickr.  I thought I would visit downtown Salt Lake City and shoot abstracts of building facades.  You’ve seen them — straight up views of glass and windows!  I love those shots, but never shoot them.  So I started out on my quest.  I left Saratoga Springs on West Lake Road (which is really Redwood Road if you’re familiar with Salt Lake) and drove north to Bangerter Highway.  As I turned east to enter the freeway, I looked for the Draper Temple — which I always do.  There it was — beautiful and stately in the late afternoon sun  — waving at me!  So I abandoned all my plans and drove straight to the temple.  These are some of the images I took.  Remember, I was looking for abstracts.

Can you tell which image I used for the contest?  And can you tell whether it won or not?
