We’re going to start off the week by traveling to the top of a volcano in Bali. The background fog separates the rich shadows and green hues, and the contrast boosts the saturation, helping us to feel the atmospheric moisture in the scene.
Thank you, Valentina Sader, for capturing many of my favorite things in one frame. The fresh fallen snow resting on top of evergreen branches reminds me how much I love the winter. Pairing natural elements against a brutalist backdrop creates a wonderfully dynamic scene.
Hello photo people! This weekend was quintessentially D.C. Whether you went to the inauguration, or were one of the estimated 500,000 people to march the streets, I was proud to see so many photographers actively making images. Instead of one image, I thought today I would share some of my favorite frames fueled by this weekend’s political energy.
Photographer, Tim Brown, invites us into the U.S. Institute of Peace. His exquisite framing allows us to peer into many little moments that are happening in each window. Like a tiny doll house, with each room exposed, the viewer can choose space to for their mind to occupy—either one at at time or all at once. I absolutely love this image.
I really wish, with all that I have in me, that D.C. looked like this all the time and maybe even with more snow. Brittany McGaughan’s wintry scene is my favorite kind to gaze upon—the coldness of the landscape warms my heart.
