Thanks for using one of my photographs, again, @DCPolicyCenter, attached, again, to a helpful analysis about something important in our city (and every city) – our data policy. Besides reading the post, I took the time to review the data policy itself (District of Columbia Data Policy | octo). Today when we access useful resources that come from policies like this, we take them for granted. One recent example is another great analysis from the DC Policy Center on the greenhouse gas emissions of buildings in the District of Columbia. There are clear differences in energy use, which can be visualized on a map of the city (The Watergate has some explaining to do).
The photograph is of the Willard Hotel in Washington, DC, shortly after sunset. At the time I was experimenting with a brand new (then) full frame digital camera. This photograph was taken during the holiday season, as you can see from the album it’s in. I really liked what it could do. Ultimately I decided to stick with my crop-sensor, life is about embracing curiosity. And, isn’t Washington, DC beautiful?
Here’s another shot of the Willard in black and white:
