Something a little different today. Glyn Lowe’s photo is more of a painting, with blown out highlights and over saturated colors. While it’s easy to go overboard with both those techniques, she’s able to balance them nicely to create a fascinating stylized image. It looks more like a impressionist painting rather than a modern photograph.

Quick note: this will be my last post for a while. I’m heading off on a mini-sabbatical to Europe for the next few months and won’t be around DC. If you’ve liked my writing, please follow me while I traipse across the Continent; I promise it will be fun, with many, many great photos. And don’t worry DC: I’ll be back (but not in the T-1000 way).

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.
