The Material World

This photo doesn’t have much to do with Washington, but the second I saw it I was impressed. Flickr user krisetya captured a unique view of something that we see in our every day lives, turning the mundane into magic. The composition of this photo is great with the majority of the frame filled with a sea of Ikea shopping carts. The nondescript man in the middle is just what the shot needed to be complete. I find the lettering on the wall distracting and would have cloned it out, but to each photographer their own. I can’t tell if the color in this photo was changed in post processing, if the camera’s white balance was thrown off, or if that’s actually what the lighting looks like in the store. My other question is, who takes their DSLR to Ikea?! Regardless, it’s a job well done.

    I say that IKEA shopping carts have everything to do with DC living. And good on krisetya for taking her big guns to IKEA too. May she know when to go too.

    Wayan, you should change your “she’s” to “he’s”, and you’re right, a weekend excursion to Ikea has probably been a part of everyone’s lives at one point or another.
