Washington, DC

Metro

This past weekend we traveled to Washington, DC and stayed with my sister, Louise. We were there for my son, Daniel’s, birthday.

On Saturday we did some sightseeing. Took a quick picture in the Metro Station. I just placed the camera on a railing on the 2nd level and hoped to get it in focus. The pictures below were taken at the new Martin Luther King Memorial that just recently opened in DC.  It’s conveniently situated near the Jefferson Memorial tidal basin and you can see the Washington Monument easily. The crowds in DC on that day were remarkable and we were glad we used public transport: the Metro.

 You can see the writing on the side of the memorial. Some say the words may be changed in the future.

As for pet photography, my sister’s terrier, Landau, was kind enough to pose for me since he knew I was happily doing pet portraits.
