photo friday: symmetry
All of these photos were taken during the nine months of Jeff’s fellowship at Dumbarton Oaks in Georgetown, Washington, DC. Most of them were taken in the Dumbarton Oaks garden. The word “symmetry” never crossed my mind while taking any of these photos, but now as I go back through them, I realize that I must have been seeking out symmetry unconsciously. And clearly, it was not difficult to find. Why else would this set be so large? I know these are not the most stunning photos taken individually, but I like them here together as a set. And I can hardly view them objectively, merely on the grounds of cosmetic beauty, because for me they are too inlaid with an emotional connection to a time and a place that I will always regard as very special in my life.
