Photographer Yonas Hassen, that master of capturing the strange pose, put a couple of good ones in the Exposed DC pool lately, but this one stood out. Given the bizarro technicolor spirituality oozing from the scene, you’ll find it almost totally unsurprising that this is from an event called the Floyd Yoga Jam.
Photographer Yonas Hassen found this interesting interplay of light and shadow on the bus. From left to right the light is in a square, a triangle and then another square. If you read the words casting a shadow carefully it reads, “Adams Morgan Golden Triangle.” Another great example to show that it’s always good to have your camera ready.
While there’s quite a lot going on in this photo from Yonas Hassen, it’s subtle enough not to be distracting. Like stars in an urban night sky, the signage becomes more apparent the longer you gaze. The roll-up garage door’s uneven frame complements the the triangular shapes in the left of the shot, while the hospital-issue pale green walls provide a soothing backdrop, with the splash of gold accenting the scene from behind the cinder blocks.
