Before those of us in the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. forget that there was a blizzard last weekend, I thought I’d post a photo I took during the great dig-out. Here’s to a few days of spring-like weather!
Light is fascinating to me. In this instance, it was the color of the streetlight that was really intriguing. I believe this was shot in late November and, for me, the color palette really evokes the feeling of that time of year.
Old Town is full of little surprises tucked away behind every corner. It took me months of walking around town to notice this mailbox located at the northeast corner of Wilkes and S. Fairfax.
You can’t really do better for light than the warm glow from the setting sun. We may not be seeing much sun for the next couple of days here in the DC area, what with the impending blizzard. Stay warm folks!
There’s nothing like enjoying a nice meal while the snow falls outside. We had a windowside table at Union Street Public House today. Great decor and vibe.
One restaurant on King Street still had its Christmas tree up, so I took advantage of the opportunity. Decorative lights look great out of focus (especially with a lens of this caliber). No one was dining outdoors on this particular evening though—a bit chilly I think!
Muted colors can be just as beautiful as bright, bold colors. This was an interesting take on the normal green and red that you see all over Old Town around Christmas. Taken last month, I’m finally getting around to posting this one.
With the amount of great architecture around town, I’m always on the lookout for manifestations of form, color, and texture. Although it’s not a fine piece of architecture by most standards, I liked the layers of color and form present in this warehouse. I’m not sure how much longer this building is going to be here, with the impending redevelopment of the Alexandria waterfront.
With a little patience, you can get really close to the great blue herons at Huntley Meadows Park. I was able to achieve a studio look to this portrait by shooting after the sun had gone down.There was very little ambient light left, so I could make the background go totally black while illuminating the heron with flash.
