IHeartFaces Photo Challenge

This is a pre-digital shot (scanned), taken 4th of July in Washington, D.C. - go figure! - of a stranger. I took it twelve years ago, in 1998, which was my first year in the USA after getting married and moving from Germany to Maryland.
Quite suitable, I believe, for the dramatic B&W photo challenge over at IHeartFaces.

Even though I dislike the shadows caused by the flash and wish the Washington Monument was not crooked, I think this is (apart from pictures of family members) one of the best pictures I ever took.

Thanks, Visty, for the inspiration!
