103 – Not an Exit, But Art

Posted in Washington DC Places and People by lwroffee on January 10, 2010

I was forcing myself to delete unusable photos this evening and found this one.  It was taken in the Corcoran Gallery of Art.  Ironically, the door is the back entrance to the galleries of the William Eggleston exhibit.

97 – Around the District

I have enjoyed being able to easily carry the little Olympus E-P1 with me most every place.  I noticed the brilliant sun on the scaffolding on the Old Executive Office Building the other day.

I thank all for their service.  As is our usual custom we are soon off to a couple of events and a dinner with a group of fellow Viet Nam veterans.

83 – Much Relieved

Posted in Washington DC Places and People by lwroffee on November 9, 2009

My photos in the last several posts appeared very washed out – unsaturated.  Fortunately, I figured out why.  Apparently, I accidently changed the color space setting in Lightroom.  I am relieved.  This is the photo that started it.  When I posted it, there colors weren’t there.  It is the Sun Trust bank building in DC, and I like the architecture and color. (I have replaced the other washed out photos here.)

81 – Reflecting Pool, Washington, DC

Posted in Washington DC Places and People by lwroffee on November 6, 2009

I passed by the Reflecting Pool on the Mall a couple of days ago and it seemed to be doing its job nicely.

74 – Fall Colors III

Posted in Washington DC Places and People by lwroffee on October 22, 2009

I had a chance to roam the Mall yesterday afternoon looking for more fall color.  I had read somewhere that the trees around the Tidal Basin would be very colorful so I headed in that direction.  They we still pretty dull, but I found this sugar maple near the WWII memorial.  I have a few other shots here.

71- Fall Colors

It has been cold and rainy here for the last couple of days.  I was able to spend some time roaming the Mall in DC a couple of days ago, and the colors were almost at their peak.

65 – Watching Over St. John’s

I guess that I would be cross eyed too staring at the steeple on St. John’s all day.

I passed the Washington Monument at just the right time.

I caught the early evening sun on some flowers and a railing outside the Willard Hotel.
