Generational Change

My friend Nancy took this photo after the parade when she was walking to the bus to go back home. The Washington Post was already printed and out on the street.

To me this image speaks of the generational change that occurred when President Obama took office. The old and broken giving way to a new, strong beginning. See how the photographer's shadow reflects on the side walk? Both she and the newspaper are documenting history.

And notice how the older woman is wearing a full-length fur coat? More than likely she is an Obama-supporter who got out of the house at all costs but the style still speaks of a generation past. And coincidently, the orange sign behind the vendor spells "access," the hope of millions for this administration.

If you need a photographer in the DC, VA, MD or NYC area, contact me at leslieinadamsmorgan (at) gmail (dot) com. I'll put you in touch with Nichols Photo.
