Travel Sunday: DC Monuments & Scenes

Travel Sunday focuses on DC snapshots. Spring is especially gorgeous in the DC area. The cherry blossoms were yet to fully bloom due to the cold weather lingering. The one or two trees in full bloom around the Tidal Basin were flocked with tourists so my efforts to capture the buds were a complete bust. Today, I am sharing with you my favorite snapshots from my weekend outing. First up Roosevelt Memorial.
Above is another scene from Roosevelt Memorial. I framed it wider, the fourth photo below is framed tighter. I would be curious which one you like better?
Still...Roosevelt Memorial.
Here above is that tighter snapshot. Do you like one over the other?
Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial.
The Korean War Veterans Memorial above, probably one of my favorite memorials, snapshot came out naturally eery, around 7 or 8am when I snapped it.

  2. Oh, Shulie!! What a time appropriate post of us!! Liv just returned yesterday and had a fabulous trip East. She's happy to be home, but is already planning a return to DC and NY, those were her two favorite stops. She told me about the Korean Memorial (she talked most about that one), but they were there at night and she didn't get a single shot. I'm eager to show her yours.
    As for your two version, I wouldn't have done it, but I think I like the wider angle... I really need to work on opening up, I tend to do everything close up. As such... my favorite shot of the bunch is probably your first one!
    Thanks so much! I think you guys were there on the same day!

  3. In all the times I´ve been to DC, many, I don´t think I ever visited these two memorials. So many places to see! Lovely pics Shulie. I like the tighter one better.

  6. wow! that last sculpture is definitely haunting. Very realistic detailing too. Now you are making me wish we had time to do a quick DC trip before we leave the US! So much left to see, will have to come again, perhaps as a tourist next time!
