The View from Durham: A black chapeau hangs among the empty hangers on a coat rack at the Duke Cancer center following it's dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday February 23, 2012 in Durham, N.C. The 267,00 sq. ft., $235 million center hosted an open house and dedication before opening to patients on February 27. How I got the shot: As I explored the center following the ribbon cutting and speeches by Dr. Victor Dzau and Governor Bev Perdue, I found the lone hat stuck into a coat hanger. I used a 50mm lens will shallow depth of field to accentuate the shapes.
