Photography on Display – Living Social – 918 F Street – Washington, DC

I was recently approached by staff of Living Social to display some of my photography at their new facility on 918 F Street in Washington, DC.  The building is a recently rennovated historic building that will be used by the company as an event space for a variety of purposes and as a home to some of their offices. I’ll get more into the building and its uses in a moment.

The Living Social staff was looking for artwork that displayed Washington, DC and was created by local artists to help make the new facility reflective of its surroundings. After talking with their staff, we decided on three photographs from my Washington, DC Gallery.

When I dropped off my artwork, I had the opportunity to tour the building. Living Social describes the facility as “a downtown space dedicated to hosting unique local experiences and bringing the best of DC to life.” They do this by creating various rooms in the building that will serve a variety of purposes. There is space for pop-up restaurants, cooking classes with popular chefs, art classes, and 2-level bar/club space that can host musicians or other performers. The building also has a large reception area to greet guests that have come to events at 918 F. A multi-purpose room provides additional space in the building to meet almost any need. All of the spaces are outfitted with the newest of modern technologies.

While I have not yet been able to attend an event here, it seems that there are a lot of great options. Interested participants can sign up for experiences at 918 F by buying tickets much like you would for any other deal that Living Social offers. A listing of events is available online.

The photographs I have on display are prints of the images below:

12 Significant Photos: #4 – Dawn at the Capitol

21 10 2009

The day after Christmas in Washington, DC was both cold and quiet. I took my wife to work early in the morning so that we could get on the road out of town after her shift. Her shift started before sunrise, so I was able to get to the Capitol before it was light.

There were not many people around. Just a men’s group out for a morning walk. I decided that I would take some shots of the Capitol from front (west front, sun behind) and center.

The reflecting pool in front was partially frozen, creating a unique reflection that ranged from mirrored to blurred. The sun rose behind the Capitol Building and lit up the sky and the reflection. The resulting shot is one of my favorites that might be out of place as #4 in my list.
