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.

Ever play Mystthat computer game from the 90’s? Yep, the creepy one where you always felt like someone would be behind you even though no one was there. Anyway, this photo reminds me of that game.

This was shot in one of the gazebos that is located at the end of one of the docks out on the Potomac River. Always look around you. Up, down, left, right. And, if you’re playing Myst, behind.

Hanging out with my coffee and pain au raisin (by the way, ridiculously good) in Society Fair the other day, I was observing this chandelier hanging above the checkout area. The juxtaposition of daylight and artificial light being refracted through the crystals was fascinating.

I took the photo with the white balance set to tungsten, so the daylight ends up looking blue. Much of the rest of the photo goes to black because the ambient light level in the store was much lower relative to the light in the chandelier.

Sometimes you just have to look up…

This photo was taken underneath the Woodrow Wilson Bridge on a beautiful fall day. I’ve seen this image in my head a few times while walking there, but the conditions were never quite right.

If you stare long enough, the clouds begin to move.

Yesterday afternoon, the light was creating some great shadows on this simple white picket fence. To highlight the play of shadow and texture, I chose to convert the image to black and white.
