Week 1: “January 26”
Digital. Kensington, MD.
I had just tried a tofu burrito at Chipotle, when I looked outside at the snow falling. Across the street was a gas station, which glowed blue, and was incredibly empty. It felt sad, but beautiful. I took the picture, and after showing the picture to a friend, he told me that this exact gas station was where a woman was killed during the DC Sniper events of 2002. I wish I could say that I knew that beforehand, but I guess it’s a bit weirder to say that I thought the gas station was ominously beautiful, without knowing it’s history.
