Patriotic Colors in Tysons

Tysons, Virginia

Today is my 44th birthday! Concurrently, it is Patriot Day in the United States which is the reason for patriotic colors in the photos. Certainly, half of the year has been a challenge. The pandemic lockdown drastically changed everyday life and work in 2020. However, I have used my photography to keep myself busy.

At first, I only had one assignment to capture this large American flag on the Tysons Tower. Since it was scheduled to only be up temporarily, I went out during different times during the day to see how it looked with different skies. With less foot and car traffic, it was a good way to social distance!

Additionally, I did not have as many other projects to work on. With this in mind, I could take more time to experiment. I went deep into the equipment bag to try gear I normally do not bring with me to expand my skills. As can be seen, I expanded my self-assignment to include other patriotic colors on other buildings. They make for a nice collection!

Complete Penthouse Project – Judith Weisman Interiors

Today’s post looks back at a complete Penthouse project by Judith S Weisman Interiors. While working with other creatives can be stressful to some, I try to be as collaborative as possible. Not only does it make my attitude during an event more pleasant, it helps to bring people together as a team. For me, it makes the photos look much better when I review them later! In this case, Judith was terrific in showing off her work on this amazing home.

In light of the homeowner’s extensive art collection, their viewability was the overall goal of the design. Large open spaces that allowed natural light through. Judith really set the myriad of pieces in the home that gave them their own space to be appreciated.

As can be seen, there was a lot to visually take in. In fact, this looked like a museum set inside a home! Each room had numerous art pieces, but also had seating and other comforts making it a livable space. Being that all the surfaces looked new, I was appreciative of all the details that went into the complete penthouse project. It was a daunting task to document all that had been done. Be that as it may, I can see the collaboration between Judith, the designer, and the homeowner to pull it all together.

Social Distancing and Drive In Movies at Tysons Corner Center

Taking Care Tysons

Tysons, Virginia

Presently, the world is adapting to changes to everyday life. With this in mind, these are photos of social distancing changes implemented at Tysons Corner Center during the Covid-19 pandemic. Although we are not yet back to normal, you can visit, walkthrough, and do some shopping. Of course, I have missed my assignments there, so this was an appropriate first assignment back since February!

Throughout the center, there are stickers showing a six-foot distance with reminders to stay apart from those who you do not reside. Additionally, there are hand sanitizing stations that are touchless. At their ‘Taking Care’ website, all the policy changes with respect to social distancing are explained so that you can view them prior to visiting.

While I was making these photos, I noticed many people taking advantage of the changes. The sanitizing stations were frequently used as people walked through entrances. Also, most shoppers wear masks and keep their distance moving through the large hallways. At this time, I am encouraged. The Tysons community is working together to lessen the effects of the coronavirus so that we can hopefully return to normal.

Drive in Movies

To give the community more of an opportunity to get out of the house, Tysons Corner Center also hosts a series of drive-in movies. Additionally, it is a fund raiser for Second Story. With your donation, you can get in to see the feature with your car tailgate as a seat! Their next show is this Friday, August 14, so visit their site to get their details to start next weekend!
