The White House

This is a photo I was unsure about posting because it has been done a million times. I did however decide to post it because it tells a lot of the story of the march and protest. Things that I really like about the photo are how clearly you can read the signs, the Washington Monument in the background, and the two Secret Service officers looking out over the roof of the White House.

Hey, I've been looking at your photos for along time (mainly through Bravest). Amazing photos! Do you mind if I ask what kind of camera you use?

i agree, the washington monument is the icing on the cake ... it's usually too foggy/overcast in D.C. to see it (at least it has been every time i've been there.)

this is my favorite photo of the bunch, yet. i love the highlighting around the white house & trees. (or perhaps i'm just seeing things- that's totally possible).

Thank you :) I am not sure how that even happened? I did not process this photo any differently then I process any of my photos for black & white and I do not do any processing other then applying the gradient map and adjusting levels in Photoshop. I may have also adjusted curves a little, but none of these things should have had that effect. Oh well I think it looks kinda cool too, if even bit manipulated ;)

Hi, I made some icons out of a few of my favorite photos of yours. The only editing was resizing, cropping and a bit of tweaking the contrast to make the resized version clearer. They are numbers 36-41 in this batch if you'd like to see them. :)
