Instead of heading to DC last night, I took a walk around my neighborhood lake. It was nice. It definietly forced me to slow down and take a look at everything around me. I wasn’t so concentrated on making a grand image. I was focused on finding the little things.

There wasn’t much going on with the sunrise, so I tried my 70-200mm to see if I could find anything interesting.

Usually the tidal basin isn’t this quite during Cherry Blossom season. Not sure why it was, but it was actually kinda relaxing. It was nice just walking around the beautiful trees and people watching.

You can tell when it’s August in DC. Congress is out of session and there are definitely less people out and about.

Went out to the Tidal Basin last night after it stopped raining. Usually you can see some pretty colors in the sky after the rain, but I think the clouds were trying to move out. Fast.

A beautiful afternoon at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Washington DC. I never knew about this shrine until my friends from EWTN told me about it. And I’m glad they did.
