If you asked me last year about places I still wanted to photograph in Washington DC, the Watergate complex would have been last on my list. I just didn’t know anything about it or have seen any pictures of it that would draw me to this little area of DC. Luckily I have friends like Zack, who is very detailed orientated and likes to plan a lot of different kinds of photo locations.
So earlier this year when we were getting a group of photographers together for a small photo walk, he was the one who suggested a route that involved the Watergate. At first, I thought he meant the hotel, so when we arrived at this apartment complex I was blown away by how cool it was. I love the checkered flooring in the center. I bet this would look really cool from above. If only drones are allowed in DC…
Now that I know about this apartment complex, I would love to come back and photograph it even more. The architecture is just really cool.
Side note: Yesterday I left DC to travel to Taiwan with my family to visit my Grandfather. It’s been a few years since I’ve been back so I’m looking forward to spending time in Taipei. I have so many great memories in the capital city, so if you’re interested in tagging along, follow me on Instagram where I’ll be posting on my stories.
