There are several wonderfully absurd things about this photograph. First is the ICEE bear, positioned exactly in the frame to look as if he is really handing that drink to the photographer. The second is the person, almost the same size as the bear, but their top half is taken over by the plant. When you add in the bold colors of the food stand, the plant, the bear sign and the shoes of the person we can’t fully see, this image is a summer winner.
Photographer Yonas Hassen found this interesting interplay of light and shadow on the bus. From left to right the light is in a square, a triangle and then another square. If you read the words casting a shadow carefully it reads, “Adams Morgan Golden Triangle.” Another great example to show that it’s always good to have your camera ready.
