Federal Triangle Archway B&W

501 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
The Federal Triangle, Washington, D.C.

The Federal Triangle refers to the triangular area between Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Constitution Avenue NW, 15th St NW, & E St NW beside the National Mall. Exiting the Federal Triangle Metro station, one would find grand neoclassical buildings that house nine enormous federal buildings with government offices including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S Department of Justice, U.S. Attorney General, National Archives, and the Federal Trade Commission to name a few.

I noticed this archway one day as I headed to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History and knew I had to come back one day with my gear to take a proper photo. Washington, D.C. has a distinct feel downtown with myriad impressive buildings with their neoclassical architecture. I was taken by the simplistic beauty of the curved walkway with its windows and hanging lanterns guiding my eye down the path of geometric shapes.

Early on a cold Saturday morning in February I made my attempt to avoid the crowds of government workers who flood this hallway during the week. I started the morning with my planned sunrise shot of the U.S. Capitol Building & Reflecting Pool found here. I then hopped on a bicycle from the bike-share and whisked over here and was pleased to find few people and perfect light casting deep shadows on the hallway. Any day taking photos in Washington, D.C. is a good one, yet it’s satisfying to reflect after shooting and to know you were able to capture your previsualized images.

Photographic print

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.
