Washington, DC is a great place to take photos. All kinds of great sights. Smithsonian museums, national monuments, all kinds of government buildings, and the Supreme Court. My Washington, DC pictures are mostly HDR images processed in Photomatix and tweaked with Lightroom. My main memories of my time in the city have to do with a lot of walking. Everything appears close to each other, but over the course of the day, you end up walking a few miles.
I had the good fortune to be able to spend several days wandering around the Capitol and these are a few the many images I captured. Washington, DC has too much to see in one day, too many museums with too many items on display. This means you can see something different on each visit and that you can never see everything.
My first couple of trips I found free parking near the Jefferson Monument and my last visit I ended up parking at Union Station and paying about twenty dollars. Parking at Union Station made it easy to take photos of the station, such as the arches above, and it was close to the Supreme Court and the Capitol.
We had lunch at District Taco, a wonderful place that was always crowded and the seats are way too close together, but the food was great. The District Taco where we ate is housed in a very cool art Deco building. And they have really great sodas in their fountain, Boylan’s cane sugar sodas in a variety was fun favors.
There are still a few places I might like to visit if I get back to DC, but for now, I think I’ve done all the walking I care to do.
