Washington DC

I just returned from a trip to Washington DC with the family, and I've got enough pictures for many blog posts. We visited many of the tourist sites, including numerous Smithsonian museums, many of the memorials and monuments, Arlington Cemetery, Great Falls Park, and the National Cathedral. I'll put up separate posts for many of these landmarks over the next few weeks or months, but to start with here are a couple of sites where I only have a couple of views to show.

First up is the White House.

Next are a couple of views of the Capitol.

This is the Hirshhorn Museum, which contains modern styles of art. I won't be putting up pictures of the exhibits, as most of them are still copyrighted by their creators. I find much modern art indecipherable, but there were several pieces that I thought were awesome.
This is a courtyard within the Hirshhorn Museum.
And finally, a view of the subway, called the Metro. We rode this a lot.

I used to live in the DC area, and it was interesting to see how it had changed and how it had stayed the same. The World War 2 Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, and FDR Memorial were all new since I'd lived there, but much of the rest was exactly as I remembered it. All in all it was a fun trip.

  1. All great shots, but the one of the Capitol at night is especially beautiful!
