GOYA Friday - National Museum of the American Indian, DC
This image was made a while ago, but was on a roll that I didn't get to process and print until this week. This was shot from the top of the National Museum of the American Indian in DC. It's a really cool place, and I'm glad something came out well from there to show off the architecture. These are shots of the lobby and of the ceiling directly above it. I like to find repeating shapes wherever I can, just because it creates a relationship where one might not have existed otherwise. Not to get too new age on you all, but I think there are relationships everywhere, and we just need to look hard enough to find them... it's kind of a comforting thought in a way, and that's one of the reasons I started this Holga project in the first place. Having only lived in DC for five years now, I still feel like there's so much I haven't seen and that needs to be explored. On the surface, DC isn't the prettiest town, or even the most interesting visually, but looking at it in terms of connections and relationships, it becomes so much more than what's on the surface.
