Welcome back, I hope you enjoyed the weekend!

After traveling in and around the Washington DC area this weekend I returned home with hundreds of images to process. We’ll have a look at some of those in the coming days and weeks as I can get to them.

One such image is presented today, the National World War II Memorial. I stopped by there not long after sunrise on Saturday, finding it void of visitors initially. It’s a really nice memorial dedicated to those who served in that conflict, with all 50 states being represented. This was my first visit to this particular site and as soon as I walked up to it, I was impressed with the overall design and layout.

      DC is a treasure trove for architectural shots. I hope you have a grand time on your visit. I have a list of things I did not get around to shooting, happy to share it with you if you like. Just let me know and I’ll email it to you.
