52 Weeks of Urban Nature Week Seven: Blades of Grass Edition

January 9, 2016
52 Weeks Week 7

Washington, DC, (c) Megan Draheim, 2015


This week I wanted to play with the shapes of these dead stalks of grass (the plants themselves are in dormancy over the winter, but will be back in the spring). I loved the mottled coloring of the blades and how that makes them look so rich with texture.

This was the first week I’ve struggled a bit with the subject matter — no travel, and much of the time I’ve been out, walking around, it’s been after dark. That didn’t occur to me when I started this project — when the sun goes down can have a big impact on what I’m able to photograph each week. I’ll be keeping that in mind moving forward!
