Officially home from California and could not be happier. Our trip to San Diego was a blast. I had such a great time being on the west coast. I spent everyday but one (when it was raining) photographing the city and I loved every minute of it. Now, I have so many images to go through. I’m pretty sure I took almost a thousand if not more. LOL. So get ready for some foggy ocean images coming soon 🙂

On my way home I picked up two copies of the Washingtonian Magazine, one for me and one for my mom, because I have 2 images published in the January issue! It’s their “Our Favorite Places” issue and they’ve highlighted some pretty cool places in the city. One of them being the image above, Dumbarton Oaks. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I went there for the very first time this past summer. I can’t wait to go back again in the spring. I know that place will be flourishing in all kinds of beauty.

The second image I have on there is on page 76 of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial I took back in 2012. It’s a full page image and was so excited to see how well it turned out! You may remember it because I captured it at the same time I took this one.

So if you haven’t already, pick up the January issue of the Washingtonian and let me know if you think they’ve left out any places that should be on the list. And a big MUCHAS GRACIAS to Washingtonian for publishing my work. It’s always such an honor to see my images in print.

My camera settings for this image is F/7.1 at 1/30th of a second and ISO 80 with my Sony A7II and 28-70mm lens.

I am sooo completely honored and blown away that my image is on the cover of the WASHINGTONIAN!!! *Happy Dance* It came to a complete shock when I received the email and I couldn’t be more excited.

So, I wanted to share the love. I’ll be giving away 24×16″ prints to a randomly selected winner on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Feel free to enter in all three social media platforms, I’ll select a winner from each. That means there are 3 chances to win 🙂 All I ask is that you take a selfie with the magazine and hashtag it #ABPinDC and #Washingtonian. That’s it! I want to see all your beautiful faces.

Contest ends and I’ll announce the 3 winners on April 6th. Questions? Feel free to comment below
