From the streets to the train: DC Metro photography

I had twenty minutes or so to kill before it was time for me to meet up with some friends in Dupont (congratulations to Sara on the promotion!).  Of everywhere in the city – Gallery Place, Georgetown, monuments, Smithsonian – there is one place that always has a photo waiting to happen.  That place is the DC Metro.  I can always tell when I’m in a creative rut by going to the metro.  If I can’t find anything I want to take a picture of, it is decidedly rut time.  Fortunately, that same place can also pull me out of said rut.  It is so easy to be intrigued and inspired by the scenes underground.  A few from yesterday:

Stuff I Love: The last kernel to pop

This is sure to give far too much insight into my neurotic tendencies, but here it is.  When I’m making popcorn and the time goes off and the light turns off in the little hot box of popcorn goodness, I always always wait for one last kernel to pop.  I love that one last kernel often gets there through inertia.  Sometimes it even takes a few seconds.  But if you wait – if you just wait – normally you’ll get that satisfying final pop.  It is a beautiful thing.
