Washington, some say, is the most photographed city on earth. If that is true, then probably no one has photographed it more than Capitol Hill Blue’s Doug Thompson. “I can’t help it,” he says. “The city is a photographic wonder. It is a natural draw for a photographer.” In this case, the draw was an early morning sunrise over the National Mall. “I come out to shoot and then just stand and stare,” Thompson says. “Many mornings just take my breath away.”
