Oh sure, we just picked one of Bill’s great catches on Wednesday, but I couldn’t resist this wonderful shot of Nats Park (click on the image to see how great it looks embiggened!) It’s been perfect weather to catch a game — and lucky Bill, he attended on the only night the Nats beat the Mets last week, in a sudden upset in the bottom of the eighth inning. Go watch them play the Phillies this weekend, and see if you can get as nice a shot as this one.
It’s hard to tell exactly what’s going between the Reverend Al Sharpton and someone who appears to be a television producer. But whatever it is, the moment has been captured perfectly. Well done Bill.
Photographer John Ulaszek leaves us with an important life lesson to take into this three-day weekend: Always focus on the cheese.
Another great example from Pablo Benavente of the benefits of always having your camera with you, for those unique moments that you can’t believe you’re actually seeing. Pablo told me via email that he was visiting the Folklife Festival on the Mall when he noticed these tourists “playing with the Port-A-Potties. I mean, I’ve seen people posing with the monuments, buildings, etc., but it’s the first time I’ve seen someone posing with the Potties!” The framing adds another level to the shot: “leaving the photographer out of the frame makes the photo more interesting.”
