This photo by Mike Maguire speaks the bright side of all this recent rain: lots of greenery. In fact, it is raining at this very moment. The next time you go outside after it rains, notice the healthy saturated plants. Then, have some fun with it.
I’ve seen many images of Katharina Fritsch’s Hahn/Cock since it’s arrival to the National Gallery of Art’s newly renovated East Building this year. The opaque electrifying blue rooster is a magnet to the eye. It’s placed on the roof facing the city—keeping a close watch over the governing landscape. Mike Maguire’s image is a decisively composed frame, which depicts a woman in a yellow sweater and a friend gazing upon the monumental azure poultry. Mike’s photograph makes us feel as if we are witnessing the scene being captured and not simply looking at an image of a wonderfully weird bird.
