Dupont Circle

I didn’t get the Dupont Circle pictures unloaded from my card until today.   Just these two.  They were definitely the hardest for me to take on this trip.  I had to stand around in public where normal people live and go to work to take my pictures. It is much easier at a tourist site where everybody has a camera.   The first is coming out of the metro.  I actually got my exercise on this one.  A cute old couple dropped their umbrella down the escalator, and it fell at my feet while I stood at the bottom with my camera.  So I got to run it up to them, and then circle around and run back down.  All for one picture!This second one is on a corner where a cyclist was hit by a car.  Always very poignant for me.  Maybe because of my cyclist husband.  I found the memorial very touching.

    Very cool. The contrast on the first shot is great, and I like that they both have still parts and “moving” parts. Does that make sense, in non-photo-techy terms??ReplyCancel

    Look at you! Holy cow! I love how you got the bike all crisp and the blurry cars! Question: is it possible to do it the other way? I would assume not, since the cars are what’s moving, but yeah . . . maybe that’s a dumb question, but I was just wondering. Ha. 🙂 I love the escalator one, too! You are goooooood!ReplyCancel

      Not aware of a way to reverse it. Keeping the shutter open a long time makes the moving things blur, but I don’t know how to go the other way. Not a dumb question, though. I’m finding there is almost always a way, if you know what you’re doing!ReplyCancel
