I’ve been working on this fun photo project lately. The best part about it is that it’s getting me to parts of Washington DC that I never knew about or never really had the chance to go to before. For example, this image was taken in Dupont, right around the corner from the Philips Collection. The Philips Collection is a place that I’ve been to a couple of times but noticed how close it was to the Embassy of India where this Mahatma Gandhi Memorial is right in front of it. My mind was blown how close I had been to this memorial but had never seen it before.
I’m grateful that I finally know where it is and had the opportunity to photograph it in the fall. I think the green, almost yellow leaves really make a great pop of color in the image but also gives the image a bit more layers and depth.
My camera settings for this image are F5.6 at 1/320th sec and ISO 400 with my Sony A7II and 70-200mm.
