This shot was a very lucky catch. I was crossing the DC mall on a very snowy photography taking and gallery visiting fun day with a good friend when this scene unfolded before me. I quickly set up and took several shots as the lone pedestrian with the brightly colored umbrella walked toward the Washington Monument. This one was my favorite.
