A Shot A Day – 2016 (04/03/2016)

“Arch Of Constantine”

Union Station, Washington DC, in the Attic block, above the main cornice of the central block, stand six colossal statues (modeled on the Dacian prisoners of the Arch of Constantine) created by Louis St. Gaudens. These are entitled “The Progress of Railroading” and their iconography expresses the confident enthusiasm of the American Renaissance movement: Prometheus (for Fire), Thales (for Electricity), Themis (for Freedom and Justice), Apollo (for Imagination and Inspiration), Ceres (for Agriculture) and Archimedes (for Mechanics). The substitution of Agriculture for Commerce in a railroad station iconography vividly conveys the power of a specifically American lobbying bloc. St. Gaudens also created the 26 centurions for the station’s main hall.

A Shot A Day – 2016(B) (094A of 365)-(03-04)

Sony Alpha A7RII, Sony FE 24-70 ZA OSS

ISO 3200 – 1/60 @ f/10 – 38mm

In this image there are a couple of concerns, one making sure that the lines in the image and the edges of the scene line up well with the edges of the frame in the viewfinder and two, making sure to set the exposure in such a way as to capture highlight and shadow details without  exceeding the dynamic range of the camera.
