I can’t exactly articulate what this photo reminds me of but, I am drawn to it’s nostalgic nature. The treatment of the the image creates an artificiality to the scene, which invites my mind to create a narrative within the single frame.
If you take a quick scan through our Flickr pool, it looks like a bunch of photographers got together over the weekend to create a postcard series from the Nation’s capital. Enjoy these classic D.C. scenes for today’s In Frame.
I see a lot of typical post-card images of Washington D.C.—many are slight variations of the same shot. But, this image photographed by, Larry Greene is perhaps my favorite picture I’ve seen of the Washington Monument. The image is taken through the columns of the Lincoln Memorial in a dark corner of the structure. It’s so unique and uses the golden light from the setting sun to create a warm, yet mysterious scene. His framing of the monument is nearly perfect.
