Monochromia: Capitol Reader


Woman sitting on the edge of the pool, reading, with US Capitol in the background.

Walking by the U.S. Capitol, I spied this woman enjoying the beautiful weather in Washington, DC. Absorbed in her reading, the woman never noticed me while I carefully framed and pressed my shutter. If only all street shots were this easy.

    • Thanks, Karen! There are so many wonderful vantage points from which to photograph the Capitol, though now it has scaffolding around the dome for the next for years, so I’m glad I got this when it was just starting to go up and easier to camouflage πŸ™‚

  1. Stacy, I left my comment on this photo in the original post on Monochromia. Even so, and because of the symbolic elements present in the image, and based in the Eduardo MuΓ±oz’s comment, I have visualized my own version of this shot. For that reason, and from now, I seriously propose this photo as one of the nominated for ABFriday Week 26 event!

  2. If only they were all this easy! I really like how serene the picture is. And just adds that bit of interest with the woman in it.


  3. I ‘appreciate the contrast between the fragility of this young woman and the imposing side and the strength that is the Capitol
    Beautiful atmosphere and framing – Good weekend
