Visit To The National Zoo In Washington DC

Visit To The National Zoo In Washington DC

These are some old photos I had that I never edited. I do remember the day was brain-melting hot in Washington DC. There wasn’t a lot of animals out. The most active ones were in the climate-controlled areas. That’s why there are so many birds and smaller mammal photos. It was too damn hot for anything else to move. These are going live a little later than normal as my internet went boom and I did the upload via my…

Lost In A Good Book

Lost In A Good Book

Took this photo on the back of the Lincoln Memorial. Not a part that most people wander back to but I saw a lot of locals back there enjoying the view of the river. Most people that visit the Lincoln Memorial only go into the main area where the statue of Lincoln is. There is a whole museum in the basement of the building. You can also walk all the way around it if you are inclined. You get different…

5 From DC

5 From DC

This is the final of the series. This was taken in the middle of Virginia Avenue. I got a few strange looks from people walking by and cars as I setup my tripod in the middle of a traffic island. The Washington Monument is one of the tallest structures in Washington DC so it serves as a landmark if you are navigating. You can also see it from most vantage points that have a clear view. So if you are…

Four From DC

Four From DC

I realized a bit late I should have picked a different title but hindsight is 20/20 and I have been very busy with work. This is towards the end of my photographic journey in Washington DC and shockingly not on the National Mall. I was walking back to my car which was parked on Virginia Avenue. I have attempted to shoot the United States Institute of Peace building before but no luck. This time the light was hitting it right…

Three From DC

Three From DC

This is the third post in the one off image series I am doing this week. This is the Declaration of Independence Memorial. Least according to the map I looked at. You can see it’s getting darker or I’m making the image lower key. One way or the other it fits the mood. I honestly just liked the sunset and the ducks floating on the water. Honestly the water isn’t that deep. It would be well below the knees of…

Two From DC

Two From DC

This is the second from the DC series I am doing this week. This one is the Lincoln Memorial from the far side of the Reflecting Pool. I took this image after I had taken the Jefferson Memorial image. There were some stops in between the two images so the sun had shifted. The light was coming in from behind me to the left. That is why the building isn’t fully light but it was all about the light and the…

One From DC

One From DC

This will be a series this week of one off images. It will show my progression in the afternoon when I was down on the National Mall in Washington DC. Technically this image is in Virginia by definition but it’s on Federal Land. If you live in the DMV; DC, Maryland and Virginia as we call it. You naturally understand what is state land versus what is federal. Most locals don’t even think about it as we know. For a visitor…

Memorial Shadows

Memorial Shadows

This was shot on the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC,. I had just finished taking some photos off the backside of the Lincoln Memorial and was walking around to go back down to the front. I saw the shadows off the columns with the Washington Memorial in the distance and just had to take the image. I got lucky in that no one was walking towards me. I was rushed because I had people coming behind me. In fact, there…

Sense Of Scale

Sense Of Scale

Shot this on Presidents Day Weekend. I was just wandering the National Mall with my Sony A7R and randomly taking picture. I was heading back to my car to pack up my gear and saw this and took a shot. This area is called the Constitution Gardens. It’s just a small pond usually loaded with ducks. There are a couple small islands that you can walk out onto. I have never ventured on them because they are usually crowded which…

Sunrise Over Washington DC

Sunrise Over Washington DC

I didn’t get a chance to sneak out and do some photography when I was on business travel last week. I still managed to open my curtains and see today’s image and I had my Sony RX10 sitting on the table right near me. This is one of those magical images that just work. Honestly, what was captured in the camera isn’t far from the final result. It really was that vibrant as the Sun was starting to rise over the…
