    The White House
    January 7, 2007
    The flag is flying half-mast because former president Gerald R. Ford had just died.

    Thanks to David Luria (who was standing next to me) for the idea.

      Great job framing and powerful and befitting gray tones. Well done.

      I'd really dig it if you'd submit it to the Progressive Wednesday group.

      All the best,

      I like the framing of this one! A great B&W to pair with the opposite colour one.

      Great pic. I wanted a unique shot of the White House for an article I wrote here and this fit the bill perfectly. Great eye to add a new dimension to something that has been photographed so many times before.
