Washington Metro

Seeing a place or a subject with fresh eyes is often equally as important as knowing it intimately when it comes to making great pictures. I thrive off the visually excitement of new surroundings..my photographic essays are therefore very much about exploration- this makes traveling with a camera both interesting and rewarding at the same time.

During a recent business trip to DC I found myself moving around constantly, and quickly decided if I was going to focus on any one “photographic” essay in the short time I had available it was going to be the Metro System by default! The light, the movement, energy and architecture of the subject was intriguing to me visually- far removed from the western imagery I have been focused on of late. So there you have it; visual exploration of a subject with “fresh” eyes!

I ask you this, do you find yourself eager to explore new found settings “through the lens” or do you prefer to use the camera to delve “deeper” into familiar subjects- perhaps learning about yourself in the process? Just some thoughts…..for many I would assume that all of the above applies. Journalism, Photography, and Discovery being one in the same…..at times!

  1. Excellent choices. Especially the first escalator! Just started going through the full group at DRR. Will touch base when I complete that task.MK


  2. MK. Thank you for the feed back. It is important to me to get an outside perspective from time to time..and I am equally impressed that we choose almost the same images from so many… I am ready to return the favor any time! Keep me posted! Cheers, Jeremy
