The best time to view the monuments in DC is at night. When my brother was in town a few months back, we strolled around and I took some shots. Despite how steady I think my hand is most of them did not come out. No surprise there.
However, I kept thinking about some of the photos I took. Call me crazy, but some of them were haunting me. I needed to go back. So, I did. This time I took my new fancy tripod and things turned out much better. I focused on the World War Two memorial on this particular trip.
For the most part I am pretty happy. There still are some things I would fix and I will go back and fix them. Now that baseball season is over I have a lot more time on my hands. The rest are over on flickr if you want to look.
