These two shots were taken from an almost identical location one year apart during return visits to my home town of Belfast in Northern Ireland. I like the similarities – lone man crossing bridge shot from below – but I’m also struck by how different they are and how small changes can change the look of a picture.

I try to keep the editing of my film files to a minimum but this one needed quite a lot of work because of the strong light and shadows, but I thought it was worth the effort. Those familiar with Washington, DC will recognise the Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture, while almost everyone will know the Washington Monument. Getting something a little different is a challenge on the mall in DC since nearly every inch of it has been photographed a million times and more so when I saw this image taking shape as I walked by I decided to try a couple of shots despite the difficult light. I think it still needs more work, particularly on the edges of the monument but it’s getting there.

I like the way hard lines of the two structures both challenge and complement each other. I also liked the play of light through the open metal work of the museum’s facade.
