Washington D.C.

I finally finished going through my photos from the trip to D.C.  I have to get better at deleting “in camera.”  Here are my favorites.  There are probably more here than any of you care to look at, but this is my photography journal, so I included them anyway.  I spent one day at the Capital and the Library of Congress.  The Library of Congress is my favorite place to visit.  Everything about it is beautiful.  Another day just walking DuPont Circle.  (It was much more fun than I remember.  Probably because last time I was there, I was trying to navigate through in a car).  We went together for a walk around the monuments at night.  I’ve decided I really love night photography.  I saw the MLK monument for the first time and was very impressed.  I tried taking photos, but nothing struck me.  Later in the night we ran into the cutest little African American boy on a tour with his parents.  I told Hubby if I was a real photographer, I’d ask his mom’s permission to take his picture looking up at the MLK monument.  Until then, I’ll just have to file away these big ideas for later.

    P.S. I wish you would have asked permission for that picture. That would have been so meaningful to me, as well. And you ARE A REAL PHOTOGRAPHER!!ReplyCancel

    Ditto to Jeannie. Look in the mirror and repeat after me, “I am a real photographer.” 😉

    So, I think you are becoming a master at capturing patterns and lines in a beautiful way. I love that very first one and the one in like a corridor that curves, and the Union Station one, and then the Washington memorial reflecting and how you got the whole thing–awesomeness. 🙂ReplyCancel

    You really have an eye for taking something stunning and capturing it in a little rectangle that perfectly gives the sense of awe and beauty.ReplyCancel
