The Picture of the Year

It's a new year. Welcome 2016 with enthusiasm! City Daily Photo participants pick a picture each January 1st for theme day from the hundreds posted during the year before. In October, FFP caught a photographer using the parking garage across the street and the skyline for this exuberant photo. A single moment in the life of our city. There are no icons like the Capitol or Frost Bank Tower in it. Just use your imagination for the shot the photographer got while FFP stood above capturing the moment. Life in 2015 in Austin was like that: changing, moving and without much of a steady state.

Pictures of the year from around the world are shown here. A selection of others we considered for our 2015 picture of the year is here. A selection of other 'pictures of the year' is here.
