Afternoon light turned this fire truck detail into an illustration. The colors and textures seem to pop right out.
Completed in 1773, Christ Church is a fantastic example of Georgian architecture in Old Town Alexandria. I loved the way the afternoon sunlight was streaming through these exterior windows, imprinting its own pattern onto the doorway.
There was a fire at this house a while back, and it’s since been restored. Here it is before the restoration, looking spooky in afternoon winter light.
I love this elevator. It has that perfect creepy institutional aura.
El Galeon is a replica of the Spanish sailing ships used during the colonial era. Here, a crew member works on the bowsprit, high above the Potomac River.
Just one of those funny sights you might easily pass by everyday without noticing. The attendant wasn’t too keen on being in the shot, as you can tell.
This was another instance where I found a scene that I really liked, but it needed a human element to add interest. I camped out in this spot for a while and got several different shots of people walking by, but this guy running down the street was by far the most interesting. Not being dressed in running gear, you have to wonder why he is running. Furthermore, I was able to catch him at a moment where it almost looks like he is floating on air.
The sky was magnificent earlier tonight and everything under it took on a golden hue. I’m always fascinated with line and pattern. You know me.
I see a lot of this roof. One day this past winter, I decided to make a picture of it. It was daytime but I processed it to give it more of an evening feel.
