I recently worked with Public Art Reston to photograph several pieces of local art throughout the community. Public art is one of the many reasons Reston is such a pleasant place to live, and I was eager to help celebrate these wonder contributions to our community. Here are some of my favorite photos of local public art. Sit back and enjoy!
