Getting ready to leave to Europe this weekend and I c a n ‘ t w a i t!!!
Is it just me or is the daylight savings time change messing with you too? I don’t know, when I was little I never really noticed. As I’m getting older the more and more it effects me. It’s kinda crazy how I’ll look at the clock and won’t believe the time. What’s also crazy is this weather we’re having. I just got back from a walk with Frankie and I was wearing a tshirt! a TSHIRT! and last week at this time we had ice all over the ground.
Looking at this picture makes me feel calm and relaxed. It reminds me of how beautiful and peaceful the winter can be. And theres something about those winter clouds that are so much fun to capture with your camera but I don’t think I’ll miss it anytime soon. I won’t miss having to pack on the layers of clothing and making sure I have my hat and gloves.
However, I’m SUPER looking forward to the spring. I love spring in DC. Not only for the cherry blossoms, but people just seem to climb out of hibernation and be happy.
This almost didn’t happen. My original intention was to take pictures of the Air Force Memorial, but I couldn’t find parking. So I decided to skip it and go home. As I was driving home, I noticed the colors in the sky started changing and I was closer to Iwo Jima than I was anything else. So I turned around again and went to the Marine Corp Memorial. Glad I did. And I’m glad that the clouds lined up perfectly to make it look like it was exploding out of the memorial.
Another one from the beautiful night of Navin’s meetup.
So I have to admit. I’ve been slacking a little on the picture taking. I dunno if it’s the cold air outside or the warmth of my bed that’s preventing me from getting out, but it’s gotta stop. Actually, I’m going out tonight with a new friend from the Arcanum. She’s in Laurie Rubin‘s cohort and am excited to get out there and shoot. It always makes it easier when you’re meeting up with someone.
This was taken last year in the winter time at sunrise.
