Any tips on DC?

For the few of you who read this blog, you were advised of our 10th anniversary celebration trip, this August. We had planned on taking a huge trip to the UK and Ireland. Well, due to some unforeseen circumstances, we had to change that trip a bit.

We swapped the green, rolling hills of my ancestors for the history-making monuments of my forefathers. We’ll be enjoying the wonderful Washington DC area. I’ve been there a couple of times, and loved it. Deanna will be visiting DC for the first time.

We’re both lovers of American History, and the building blocks of our republic. We’re planning on hitting all the major locations, right in DC, off the National Mall. If we have time I want to travel just outside the city and see a few more locations, like Ford Theater.

Do you have any suggestions? Have you been there and seen some off-the-beaten-path locations? Suggest away!

Oh, and we’ll be photowalking with the local photowalkers too! I’ve helped organize a fun dusk to evening photowalk, on the Mall. My hope is to be able to capture a beautiful sunset, then wander around and shoot all the well lit highlights. How can I leave DC, without a night shot of the Capitol?

  1. Hey Trevor! Thanks for the link…

    A great place to take some photos in on the other side of the Lincoln Memorial Bridge at night. You can get some great shots of the Lincoln Memorial, the bridge, and the river. One of my favorite spots, though I haven’t had the chance to go back there in a while.

    The new Air Force Memorial is another cool thing to shoot. If you go late at night, chances are no one will be there… and it’s only about 2 miles from downtown right next to the Pentagon in Virginia.

    There’s also the National Cathedral as well. Another great night spot.

    There’s a million places that I don’t have space to mention. All my DC photos on Flickr are geotagged, though, so that might help you think of a few places.

    See you at the photowalk!
