I see many shots of DC that are just that – shots of DC. The monuments, museums, and protests are all great things, and after all it’s easy to shoot what’s in your neighborhood. However I’m really impressed when I see a photo taken in our city that is timeless and that could have been taken anywhere, like this shot from chip py the photo guy. The photo’s title, “Man on Escalator”, tells you everything you need to know. It doesn’t matter what year, which city, which escalator, or even which man, it’s just a superbly exposed black and white photo of a guy living his life and going about his business.
