Featured Photo

Similar to the warning on wide angle dvd cases, the black bar at the top of Eric’s photo is supposed to be there. Because if it wasn’t, your eye would not naturally be drawn to the woman in the right corner. Without it, your eye would also not notice the faint lines of the brick wall in the back ground. And without it, your eye wouldn’t notice the amazing pose that the woman is in, caught perfectly in mid-stride, with a fascinating shadow cast on the wall. It helps that the image is in black and white (and film, no less), which helps focus on the composition of the photo without the distraction of color. Much of what makes this photo so good is tied directly to these two elements. Excellent work!

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.
