Sometimes when I’m browsing through our Flickr pool, I instantly see an image that really strikes me. This photograph by Dennis Dimick is one of those images. I can feel the humid air in Arlington, and sense the mood of the waiting police officer. His wait is not anxious anticipation — it’s a calm pause that happens early on dreary mornings when things are slow to start. I encourage everyone to look at more of Dimick’s work on his Flickr page. He has a lot of other wonderful images.
Meanwhile, don’t forget our 10th annual photo contest is still open for entries. You have until January 6 to submit your top D.C.-area images!
