Dupont Circle bench

DSC_0056

I had a hard time choosing today’s photo of the day. I went with this shot of the curved bench in Dupont Circle, because it’s rare to see some many strangers sitting next to each other in a park. People come here every day to take a break from work or to get some reading done or to play chess and other games. It’s quite a sight.

I may, however, prefer the technical aspects of this photo. That’s part of the tension of this project. Do you go with the cooler scene or the photo that you took better?

It’s also a callback to an earlier photo I took in the winter, where no one was sitting on the snow-covered benches.

This is part of my photo of the day project.
