Another way to escape these cold winter days, check out dupont underground. They’re currently running tours to this light projection tunnel and it’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. It sort of reminded me of Stranger Things meets X-Files.
Quick stop at the National Gallery of Art and this staircase stopped me in my tracks. I must of looked like a mad woman because I was sort of hanging over the ledge trying to capture the reflections without getting my shoes into the shot. HAHA it’s ok though. Wouldn’t be my first time lookin’ all crazy just for a shot.
Hope to be back again with more time to explore. Now that it’s so cold out, I’d love to shoot more indoor stuff in the winter.
CRAZY foggy morning last week. I was so excited when I saw this. I’ve NEVER seen the monument like this before.
So, a lot of people have been asking me where I was standing when I shot this. Its funny because I was just standing at the Tidal Basin. Nothing really special or unusual. So many people commented thinking that I was up in the air somewhere, flying a drone or maybe even at the old post office. Nope. Just standing on beautiful planet earth when I captured this.
I’m not sure how it happened but I spent a lot of time off from taking pictures in December. I think I was using cold, windy weather as an excuse. So it felt awesome when I got back out and shot my first sunrise of 2017. It was still cold and windy but I missed wondering around with my camera. I don’t want another long break like that to happen for a long time.
You know your day is going to be great when it starts off like this. Digging through the archives, I found this one from I trip I took the Shenandoah National Park in October. I love visiting the park in the autumn time. The leaves are beautiful and more often than not, I’ve seen amazing foggy mornings like this.
It was the deep contrast between the dark background and amazingly beautiful tulips that initially attracted me to this scene. I just love it when the spot light is on the colors and nothing else.
Have you read A New Earth? I’m currently rereading it now and the first chapter of the book has this beautiful description of flowers. I’d highly recommend you read it. Not just the first chapter, but the whole book.
