Delicate Arch

Hey guys, I am on vacation at home in Washington D.C. and busy working on my next project. I haven’t had a lot of time to get out and shoot, but I have been doing some editing. Normally this blog is just a few days behind me as I travel, but for the next few weeks I’m going to put up some fresh pictures, newly edited from my last few years. Hopefully get some new stuff up soon too! This shot is Delicate Arch near Moab, Utah.

Nighttime at the White House

I always think the White House looks so serene at night. Obviously here in Washington D.C.

D.C. Streets

This is a look down Pennsylvania Avenue towards the U.S. Capitol here in Washington D.C.

Old Executive Office Building

This is one of my favorite buildings here in Washington D.C. It is the old executive office building right next to the White House.

St. John’s Church

This is St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington D.C. Being only a block from the White House, it has been visited by many presidents.

D.C. Boundary Stones

I’ve been out tracking down the Boundary Stones from the original surveying of Washington D.C. back in the 1790s. It is fun, almost like a scavenger hunt. I’ve found them in parking lots, city parks and just on the side of the road, hidden in plain view. This one is in someone’s front yard in Alexandria, Virginia. Cool to have such a piece of history in your yard.

Jones Point Light

This lighthouse is interesting because it is the location of the South Boundary Stone which marks the southern tip of the original surveyed city of Washington D.C. Due to the retrocession of this land to Virginia in 1846, this lighthouse now sits in Alexandria, Virginia.

Capitol Dome

I can’t help it – the dome looks so good. This is a different angle from last week and a closer look at the U.S. Capitol dome here in Washington D.C.

The U.S. Capitol

The Capitol Building looks so nice now that the scaffolding is down. The multi-year repair of the dome is done, and it looks spectacular. Obviously in Washington D.C.

Jefferson Memorial at Night

Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days. I’ve been hanging out at home and working on other projects, but it was a beautiful night last night so I took advantage. This is a shot of the Jefferson Memorial, right here in Washington, D.C.

Florida Reflections

It’s been a great season out here on the road. Time to head home for a bit and start planning for the next phase. This is on the Seminole Indian Reservation in South Florida.

Seminole Swamp

This is on a swamp tour out on the Seminole Indian Reservation in Florida. I honestly have no idea what kind of animal that is, but I’m sure I will feel dumb when someone lets me know.

Up Close and Personal

This is a nice close-up with one of the gators in Bug Cypress National Preserve in Florida. You can even see the teeth.
