The Des Moines Egotist recently reviewed my photos of Des Moines and picked their top 5.

What makes Mr. Briggs’ portfolio successful:

Good presentation. Good introduction. We know what we’re looking at and why the photos are there.

Studied angles. It’s clear he is wandering around and around these familiar-to-most-of-us buildings, and finding new ways to see them.

An experimental theme. Riley, your eye for geometry is strong. The snaps you’ve enhanced with subtle patterns and linear highlights are among your strongest.
