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.
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.
A great photo is one that makes you see something in a way you’ve never seen it before, especially one that makes you pull a brain muscle trying to figure it out. Exhibit A: Roy‘s image of the platform at Takoma Metro station. When I first saw the image in thumbnail format, it looked like a modern sculpture of an eagle, or something related to Batman. When I opened up the full image, it took me a while to comprehend exactly what I was seeing.
Another wonderful minimal architectural scene brought to you by John Benevelli. I find comfort in the sharp angles of any geometric space—real or imagined. I find corners to be a symbolic reminder that there is perfection in a worn, seemingly unimportant environment, making them worth looking at.
