  6. I’m just full of intense descriptives.

    Do you ever find Washington, DC a bit boring and unbending? I would much prefer to be in New York City or London. Instead I m stuck in this politically monumental town!

    Great shot of the statue, by the way.

    Thank you for visiting The Poetry Project. I really like what you’ve got going on here. On my best day, my skills in the visual arts are borderline amateur (and on the bottom border, at that). I find your work inspiring. Keep it up (and welcome to the blogroll).

  9. Theresa – I know what you mean, although I’ve never actually lived in D.C. Of course, I’m not really a big-city person (I grew up in rural Montana).

    Nickolas – I’m honored to be on your blogroll. Thanks. 🙂

    Mary – Thanks. It’s a pretty intense memorial – horses with nostrils flaring, soldiers with mouths agape. I think black and white really seems to get the job done.

    Love it. The light re-scuptured the scupture.

    • You bring up an interesting point about black and white photography. I shoot a lot of sculptures in black and white, and I’ve always felt that the tonality of black and white sort of does resculpture the subject.
