Capitol cycling

When Ohio State's Moritz School of Law asked me to photograph a new graduate who is coming to Washington to work at the Justice Department, we started our shoot, logically enough, at the Department of Justice, a big federal-looking building downtown.

But Abby, the subject of the photos, explained she will be working in the department's environmental division. What's more she's a former resident of bike-friendly Boulder, and plans to bike around town in DC and forgo a car.

Enough said. Ten dollars got us a rental bike, and Abby gamely pedaled up and down the bike lanes on Pennsylvania Avenue a couple times in her skirt and heels. The result was a stylish image of biking in the nation's capital.
