WaPo photog on ‘impressionist’ shot landing on front page: ‘Pinch me’

Washington Post photographer Michael S. Williamson writes in a Facebook post that he filed his picture of Capitol Hill townhouses through a rain-streaked car window to “see how ‘artsy’” his employer would be “willing to go…Then THE BOSS calls and says that it will grace the front page of the Washington Post tomorrow. Pinch me.”

The answer is, pretty artsy! A terrific front page. If you live in Washington, it looks like the rain may let up today.

    I loved seeing this on the front page this morning. Well done, WaPo and Michael Williamson.
