Birdman on Rainier from Mount Rainier, Washington by Shiv Amin

The piece you are looking at is of Reflection Lake from Mount Rainier, Washington, taken by International House student Shiv Amin. According to the artist, “the photo in itself caused great discomfort. To get to the lake, I ended up wading through a small river with my socks on, which almost gave me frostbite, then had to hike with those wet socks about a mile in snow because the roads were closed to cars. I was also hungry at this point, but to get the picture I had to give part of my sandwich to the birds, which also caused great discomfort. I believe the picture shows a type of connection to the culture of the Pacific Northwest known for its outdoors and wildlife.”
