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).

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.

That’s a great crop, really interesting composition. I could look at it for ages.

This photo expresses the chaos of war in an outstanding image. I have enjoyed my visit to your blog.

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.
