A hotel I was staying at recently had some really neat walls in the lobby. I was in the midst of trying to capture all the curves and textures of the walls, when I was quickly interrupted by a security guard informing me that this was strictly verboten.
I tried to inquire a bit about the logic behind this, and I guess in our post-9/11 world, someone taking photos of the architectural elements of a building is likely a terrorist. Oops!
Managed to get off this one shot before I was sent packing.
During my night walking around downtown LA, I had a chance to walk past the Walt Disney Concert Hall, designed by Frank Gehry. It’s a really amazing building, and was even more beautiful at night.
Been a while since I’ve last posted, but was up in LA recently for business and had a chance to walk around downtown after I got off of work.
Stumbled across this reflecting pool, and thought the scene was really serene. There wasn’t another person or sound anywhere around. (Downtown LA gets REALLY quiet after hours).
Spent some time at a beautiful lake house in Maine, recently. Paddled out in a kayak and tried to make friends with this loon. He wasn’t very impressed.
Ok – I’m sure by now you might be thinking: “Shouldn’t this blog be called Eyes on DC?”
Well, I only recently got my camera, and my recent trip to DC was one of the first opportunities I’ve had to really us it. I’m sure once I get back to San Diego and have some time on my hands, I’ll have an opportunity to take some more photos of my beloved city.
Until then, I hope you enjoy the shots of the Nation’s capital.
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial, in the shadow of the Washington Monument.
If you haven’t been to the Vietnam Memorial, you really should. For such a simple memorial (it is two large slabs of reflective black rock, engraved with the names of the 58,000+ servicemen who died during the Vietnam war), it is amazingly powerful.
He was alternating between eating pieces of his bread, and throwing it to the ducks.
