Row Houses
Washington DC
May 25, 2012
Nikon D3100: ISO 400: 1/100 sec.: f/9: 55 mm

We saw lots of row houses in DC, but these were probably the most vibrant colors and among the most well kept. They are just a block away from the House of the Temple.  Maybe it is because I grew up watching Full House or because my wife and I honeymooned in San Francisco, but I always love shooting row houses.

House of the Temple
Washington DC
May 25, 2012
Nikon D3100: ISO 280: 1/500 sec.: f/11: 26 mm

This Masonic temple was quite massive, especially since it was just in the middle of a neighborhood.  There were lots of interesting detail that would have been fun to photograph but there was no parking so a nice friend was driving around the block while I got to work.  The temple is an interesting blend of Greek (Parthenon base and Pantheon oculus) and Egyptian (pyramids and sphynx) architecture.

The Bishop's Garden is just a block away from the National Cathedral.  It has a nice view of the Cathedral and lots of interesting plants and trees, but this old door stood out to me the most.

The National Cathedral

Nikon D3100: ISO 400: 1/500 sec.: f/11: 18mm
The National Cathedral was beautiful and more what I expected to see while in Europe and didn't find much of.  It was a beautiful, although humid, day with blue sky and clouds.

Nikon D3100: ISO 800: 1/10 sec.: f/4.5: 28 mm.
I loved the way the sun came in through the sun came in through the stained glass and this shot captured the colored light coming in.  There were windows all along the walls depicting mostly scenes from US history.
