Washington DC / by Sarah Robertson

Back in 2012 I got the chance to live in DC for four short months. I absolutely loved living there, and I just felt such a connection to the city. When I walked the streets I felt like I was part of something bigger than myself and was inspired by what I saw everyday. I was also happy being in the middle of the hustle of it all. For example, commuting on a crowded metro car on my way to and from work and pretending to ignore everyone around me, running up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and being entertained by all the foreign tourists, and finally, overhearing the spirited political debates in my apartment building - I experienced most of this on a daily basis. Although I would say street photography is not my forte, I felt the only way to capture DC was by shooting on the streets. So here are a few of my shots from around the District. [Shot on TriX 400 taken with a Canon AE-1]
