Washington, DC at a glimpse: Photos

On cloudy days when the fog rolls in the and the rain starts pouring down, most people usually decide it’s a good time to curl up on the couch in a warm blanket and read a book. That’s most people. For me, my mind starts cranking out photograph after photograph as I look out the window. It becomes the perfect time to grab my camera and go for a stroll.

Washington, DC is at its most beautiful in the spring and fall. The colors in the city pop out. The temperature settles around 55-65 degrees Fahrenheit, making it pleasant to walk around without the hindrance of DC’s stifling warm summers or frigid winters. The residents of the city come alive, having time to enjoy the city without the overflowing crowds of tourists.

I try to get out into the city once every spring and fall with my camera. Wandering around taking in the city and thinking.

This past spring on a particularly rainy day I took a lingering 6-mile walk of the city…
