Photo Friday: With the Spirits and Ancestors, Washington, DC USA

“If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future*. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.” (probably misattributed to Lao Tzu, I got it from Tim Ferriss)

Washington, DC, USA has a natural release valve for the times when people need to be in the present – you don’t have to walk very far to spend time with the spirits and the ancestors.

And then, reliably, you can walk back toward the city to see the future being born. Pretty much every day 🙂 .

*Regarding the quote above. Anxiety is not always a bad thing; it’s related to its cousin eagerness, driven by the embrace of curiosity. Glass 3/4 full always.

Rest of the series here + a few virtual reality shots. We’ll see if photography embraces this trend or not. In the meantime… living in the future.
