Cherry Blossoms

Well, the cherry blossoms got hit hard this year, but a few hung on for this photo of the Jefferson Memorial here in Washington D.C.



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.


Washington Monument

This is the Washington Monument here in Washington D.C.


MLK Memorial

This is the memorial to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. here in Washington D.C.


FDR Memorial

This is the statue at the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial 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.


The Three Soldiers

This statue stands at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.


Lincoln Reflection

This is the Lincoln Memorial reflected in the reflecting pool. It was a great night to be at home in Washington, D.C.


Jefferson Memorial

This is the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C. late at night.


Lincoln Memorial at Night

Night is my favorite time to be downtown in my hometown of Washington D.C. It’s great to be home sometimes! This is the Lincoln Memorial.



Winter Warmth

For some reason, the lights on this house were just the warmest color on a cold, snowy night here in Washington D.C.


Dusk After the Blizzard

This is one more from the top of Fessenden St. Hill in Washington D.C. after the 2016 blizzard.


Snowy Sunset

After 2 days of snow and cloud, the sun coming out was a welcome site here in Washington DC. Sledders were out and the mood was good as people were just happy to get out of the house. This is from Fessenden St. Hill, the highest point in the city.
