DC Sartorial Style   2 comments

Washington, DC is a place where tie clips are still a thing, where bow ties are still worn in seriousness, and where men still wear fedoras.

I know that title is an oxymoron, given what is going on in this city these days, but it didn’t seem to bother these two as they enjoyed a quiet Friday evening sunset over the Lincoln Memorial.

Cherry Blossom Time!   Leave a comment

Walked to the Mall after work on Friday and captured these photos. A wonderful time to be in DC, except this year it’s unseasonably cold. Nevertheless, the water’s edge was packed with tourists (i.e. camera-toting) and locals (i.e. picnicking).

Captured at Tyson’s Corner Mall near Washington DC. Loved the colors and busy scene, even though everyone there was quite calm and enjoyed their meal.

Guarding the Washington Monument   1 comment

Trying to find a unique perspective of the Washington Monument, I came across these two soldiers guarding the entrance. Captured during a brief business trip to DC earlier this week.
