#ScandalRewind - Close-up shot of OPA
Another shot that I credit as one of my favorite Scandal moments is this close-up of OPA headquarters with Fitz’s White House looming in the background. There are many things I caught just from this one shot…
I also thought back to the times Olivia has said that he’s (re: Fitz) always in her mind. Taking this photo into literary context, I’ll say pretty much, right? I also thought back to that moment Fitz was seen looking outside his window back in “White Hat’s Off.”
I also thought of the height ratio difference and how Olivia left the White House to create her own establishment - Olivia Pope & Associates. (HIgher Ground, eh? Of course OPA will have the top floor at a high rise building.) I also thought of the irony of Olivia’s love for the color white and how the Fitz’s current residence is also white.
I also thought of the time Olivia told Huck that they are on the dark side of the moon when I caught this shot.
All of the things I mentioned is simply why I enjoy this shot of OPA headquarters as one of my favorite Scandal moments.
