I really wish, with all that I have in me, that D.C. looked like this all the time and maybe even with more snow. Brittany McGaughan’s wintry scene is my favorite kind to gaze upon—the coldness of the landscape warms my heart.
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.
I’ve seen a lot of great images with wonderful uses of contrast lately—Bridget Murray Law’s photograph is no exception. She sets the mood with her stunning use of light and shadowing that characterizes the contemplative man standing by the window. The scene is timeless and I feel a sense of familiarity to the image.
