"Blocks And Shadows"
This photograph was taken in a sculpture park on The Mall in Washington D.C. The blacks and whites represent the polarized political parties with very little gray in between. A perfect metaphor for political paralysis in our nation's capitol.

Biography: I seriously took up photography while on a trek to Mount Everest in 1994. I have studied with John Sexton, Jack Dykinga, Justin Black, John Shaw and Jack Holowitz. I converted from film and the darkroom to digital media in 2005. My work predominantly consists of landscapes, architecture and abstracts. I am presently using a Nikon D800e and all images are printed on Canson Platine paper.
