Just like a dream Poison Frogs Thought is was cool :) The US Capitol in Washington DC. This photo was taken during the so-called These are all the books on Lincoln. :) You often see painters, or the occasional yogi around the tidal basin, but this is the first time I've seen a mermaid. #cherryblossoms #architecture #washington #usa This is the cealing of the beautiful library of the congress of the United States in Washington. I did this photo with my 8mm fish-eye lens. Hope you like it! Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC this morning! WASHINGTON Monument during Independence Day
#NationalPark View from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial at sunset. Entire area is quite awe inspiring for the first time visitor. You can spend countless hours looking at all the sights and museums. The cemetery was absolutely huge! I only had time for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the resting places of some of the Kennedys because it was absolutely freezing out. It is a very serene and thoughtful place to stroll through though. You can also take tours on a coach if you don't want to walk the whole way. It really is huge! Cherry blossom weekend at Washington DC I have never been so impressed with a monument to a single man before While I was busy shooting the monument, my son keeps telling me to turn around and look at President Lincoln. Was I ever glad I did! The sunset was magnificent! My son's reply when I thanked him? See, mom, you should listen more often! #roadtrip #weekendgetaway #washingtondc #lincolnmemorial Red Bud Trees in Rose Park. Georgetown, Washington, DC 2nd day of spring. Cherry blossom blooming.

#waterlust Most of the cherry blossoms are actually a white color when blooming. However, there is one tree that is definitely a pink tree. Photos around this tree are quite popular, as you can imagine. #cherryblossoms Amazing Pizza! I will eat here again the next time I am in DC! #lateplates Spring comes when God Smiles! Those cherry blossoms make spring more beautiful. The sun setting on one of my absolute favorite buildings. #architecture #washingtondc Twilight picture taken of this beautiful Basilica located in the heart of Washington DC. This Basilica is the largest Catholic Church of the United States. This was taken on a river cruise on the Potomac. DC is such a beautiful city
#URBANJUNGLE If you are in the area, pop your head in this gigantic building. The columns are impressive in their huge size! This also makes for a nice respite from the elements and is conveniently located right at the metro stop. 2nd day of spring. Shadow play.

#cherryblossom in #Washington
#spring is finally here.
#nationalparks This thing is soo cool This great art installation makes a simple passageway between the east and west buildings of the National Gallery of Art really spectacular. One more fireworks shot. It didn't take much time to figure out how to take good fireworks shots, just learn your camera settings. My first year I went here, I simply asked a few photographers and they spent some time with me and helped me out immensely. Try the same. During the peak bloom of the cherry blossoms in Washington, DC, there are plenty of things to do and see.
A note to travelers: the tidal basin is a lovely, rounded area that provides gorgeous views of major landmarks: the Martin Luther King memorial, the Washington memorial, and the Jefferson memorial. On the basin, you can take out paddle boats to get more intimate with the water and surroundings, or you can walk the well-worn paved path that edges the water.
In parts, this path has a sturdy railing that prevents onlookers from falling in. In most areas, there isn't such structures. You also have low points that completely fall under water when there's high tide so look out for muddy areas!

#SpringFun Beautiful stained glass in the National Cathedral! Walking across the Connecticut Avenue Bridge you see only the edge of Rock Creek Park, a U.S. National Park that is located in the NW part of DC. It's twice the size of Central Park and love that its within walking distance from my apt. Particularly on those few snow days a year that makes everything look quite magical. Autumn in DC Its like going back in time to the middle ages when you see this it's so lovely Amazing lightning An incredible collection of books written on Abraham Lincoln in Ford's Theatre Centre for Education and Leadership, in Washington, DC. The towering tribute to the 16th US president (estimated to contain over 15,000 books) stands 34 feet and 8 feet wide. It is located just across the street from the historic Ford Theatre where he was assassinated in 1865. It's quite the catalogue, and if you think about it if you were to read one of these books every day for 40 years you wouldn't finish them all. Awesome spot for the fireworks this year between the Lincoln Memorial and the reflecting pool. #sakuraseason #cherryblossom #washingtondc #usa #usatravel Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Garden summer lotus blooming.

Reflections Facing west, fountain in the Sculpture Garden Well worth waking up in time for pre-sunrise in DC:) (colors peak around 5 AM) The Renwick Museum recently reopened after being closed for 2 years. They've kicked off with an amazing exhibit called Wonder. This rainbow installation is made out of thread. The view of the White House from the top of the Washington Monument. One the #LKsAwayDays favourite cities! I'd been to DC a few times so, by the time we lived there, I felt I had seen all of the memorials... and when you live in DC, you don't really go to the touristed areas...especially in the summer.
The Korean War Memorial I actually hadn't visited and I finally got around to it when a friend from Boston insisted that we Beautiful post-sunrise spot ... Fountains go on just after 6 AM The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden was... interesting.
Some art makes you think.
some art you should not think to hard about.
some art you need to take drugs to understand.
some art is testimony to why some people should not do drugs.

#Colorful View of the Francis Scott Key Bridge from Jack's Boathouse The National Law Enforcement Memorial is a quiet place to reflect on those who have lost their lives in the line of duty protecting others. This is a beautiful, well-done memorial. We found it interesting to find the names of the officers from our state while we were there.

Since John Adams in 1800, The White House has been the official residence of every United States President.
Despite being constructed out of sandstone painted white, the structure took significant fire damage just 14 years after its completion.
The White House has expanded to include the East and West Wing as well as taking over the neighboring Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

Cake pops nestled into a cone with a cupcake 😻 #SweetSpot Metro Station Departing train I've taken thousands of photos over the years of the cherry blossoms here in DC. Every year I try to find something new to see, like discovering over time the perfect spot to get the best golden light near sunset. The only thing I've yet to do...sunrise shots ( I am so not a morning person.) This photo is from 2013. #cherryblossoms Loved this place (yes, fans of Night at the Museum)! Wished we had more time to explore...
While DC has about a dozen varieties of cherry blossom trees, the majority that line the tidal basin are the fluffy, white, cloud-like kind. One of the famous structure in DC Sunset on Lincoln Memorial and Reflection Pool LKsAwayDay loves Washington DC!
