Dana Carvey impersonations aside, this is an excellent forced perspective photo by Robert. Perfectly angling the abstract George H.W. Bush statue, located in the American Art Museum, to make it appear that it is reaching out to the man sitting in the gallery. The black and white coloring of the photo helps to simplify the composition and confine the viewer’s attention on the statue and seated person. Well sighted and well executed; very prudent. A thousand points of light, in fact.
Brian is so DC. Born on Pennsylvania Ave (not there) to a lifelong Federal worker father and a mother who has worked for Garfinkel’s, the Smithsonian, and Mount Vernon. Raised on the “mean streets” of Cheverly, MD; went to high school at Gonzaga College High School (Hail Alma Mater!); and now trolls the corridors of Congress as a lobbyist, you couldn’t write a more quintessentially DC back-story. When he isn’t trying to save the country from itself, Brian can be found walking DC looking for that perfect photograph.
