I sleep in the daytime, I work in the nighttime

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.

these are really great dude, i'm totally impressed. on my own (pathetic) trip to DC i took some cool B&Ws of the vietnam wall & korea memorial but nothing at night, or nothing that turned out to my memory... i did go at night tho because i had heard how cool it was and indeed i loved it. altho the person i was with was a total scaredy cat walking the streets late as somehow altho the monuments were crowded the street we walked on was empty. she lives in NY so i don't know what her problem was!

I went there with my bro a few months ago too, and it was really moving. Beautiful photos, btw.

Really gorgeous photos! You were meant to be a creature of the night, clearly. Watch out for garlic and wooden stakes, though.

Thank you ladies.

I am always a little leery of walking through the monuments at night alone, mainly because there are so many tress and you never know who could be hiding. However, my tripod makes a very an excellent weapon.

And then there is the whole sucking their blood thing...
