The Obelisk
Washington D.C. is not only the country's capital, but also the American monument capital. Presidents, peoples, grand events- they are all commemorated in one way or another. One of my favourites things to do while there was to photograph the monuments at night- they are usually well lit and stick out in the evening skyline. Another thing I wanted to do was to avoid the obvious: the best known photographs of the Washington Monument aren't usually taken from its southern face, as in this case. Also, In most pictures, the monument is much more prominent in the frame. I chose to make the image about the view and the evening light, using the monument as a element adding to the picture and not the main focus.
