National Building Museum

January 27, 2014

As mentioned before, my time is somewhat limited right now. I'm still taking photographs, but can't really provide a lot of text or create reportages, as usual. Over the next few weeks, my posts will have an emphasis on the images, with very little text. Let's start with a trip to the National Building Museum, a pretty fascinating location in D.C. that we visited today:

The building is famous for its Corinthian columns, which are among the biggest in the world. With a diameter of 2.5 meters, they're truly impressive. But, to be honest, they din't interest me too much. I switched my Olympus to black and white mode and focused on the fascinating play of light and shadow in the hall.

In particular, I was looking for strong whites, deep blacks and an overall tonal distribution with lots of dark components - something that is not all too common in my work:

There was a crazy shot which I couldn't make up my mind about. Should I include it here or not? Judge yourself:

See the two men passing by on the second floor?
