Another thing I love about living in DC: consistently interesting photo exhibits at National Geographic headquarters.
This was my favorite shot of their latest show, Simply Beautiful, a “best of” selection showcasing photos with distinctive elements–unusual moments, striking light or composition.
Why did this pic of the Mayan ruins at Copan, Honduras grab me? First, I’m traveling to Guatemala in a couple months and am especially looking forward to visiting the ruins at Tikal, which I imagine look much like this.
Second, that’s one bad-ass monkey.
Simply Beautiful runs through February 6, 2011.
