Finally we got snow! After a super mild winter, I thought we weren’t going to get snow at all this year. The other day I said we were expecting at least 5″ but I think it only came out to be 2″. Then it turned into sleet. Man was it sleeting! That was definietly the worst part. It felt like mini ice cubes were attacking your face. At some points during the morning walk, I had to turn around and walk backwards. It was too much to handle. Then it made everything turn in to slush. Oh well. It was good while it lasted.

I shot this with my friend, Navin. Turns out the metro didn’t close down but they were just on a delayed schedule. Even still, I’m so happy I was able to get out there and shoot. I would of been so sad to have missed the opportunity. This time I took the Federal Triangle stop which is something I’ve never done before. Usually I’ll take Smithsonian or Foggy Bottom but I was feeling kinda adventurous šŸ™‚ I’m glad I did because it forced me to walk a different way than I usually would have to the Washington Monument which then made me see it in a totally different way. If you’re interested, I was standing sort of close theĀ National Museum of African American History and CultureĀ but on the bottom of the hill.Ā I love how the snow simplifies everything and it really just reduces the image down to the trees and the monument. The smaller trees in the background, close to the monument are cherry blossom trees. I also thought it was kind of cool how the flags perfectly align inside the two tree trunks.

I’m glad it snowed but I’d like to get on with spring now, please?

One super stormy evening at the Lincoln Memorial. Funny how it didn’t stop anyone from enjoying the sites. You can see all the little people there hanging out on the steps. That’s one thing about the memorial that I really like. People are free to just hangout for as long as they want without anyone stopping them. I could spend hoursĀ here.

When you’re out shooting in DC as much as I am, it gets difficult to find new perspectives. I’m so glad I stumbled across this one of the Washington Monument. Its at the George Mason Memorial, across the street from the Tidal Basin. It’s not a small memorial and I walk past it all the time, but I never really stopped to take a look around.

What an absolutely amazing week! It just reaffirms the fact that photography is what I’m meant to do in life and I could not be more appreciative to be doing what I love every single day.

With that said, I have a lot of things to be grateful for, so here are my top 3 for the week:

1. So thankful to have received such kind messages about this image I took 3 years ago at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial

2. The pink sky from the image above is a part of the official movie poster for “The Choice“. I could not be more thrilled to have worked with Lionsgate Entertainment to bring this Nicholas Sparks adaptation to life.

3. Finally! My Sphere 2 experience will be opened next week in the Arcanum!!! I’m so pumped. It’s going to be absolutely amazing. The whole sphere will be about getting more attention from your landscape images and it’s going to be awesomes.
