DC Cherry Blossoms

I took this on Wednesday morning at Tidal Basin in Washington DC. If you happen to be in DC this weekend then you’ll see it in full bloom. It is probably going to be very crowded, but pretty with all those pink flowers.

Friday Mystery Photo

Spring is finally coming around with everything getting into some nice full bloom. Couple days ago I managed to stop by the Tidal Basin in Washington DC during sunrise and take a few photos. Cherry Blossoms were not in its full awesome “blossomnes” (that seems to be not the right spelling) yet, just a few days short. I won’t be able to see them this year during the peak time, but some photos I have are nice too and I’ll try to share them over weekend or next week.

Since there would be no mystery in posting those photos, I’m pulling something out from archive, maybe not as obvious to all. The mystery here is not only the mountain that you see in the background, but from where it was taken. Can you name both of them? btw, that guys there on a rocky cliff is not me, it is not a selfy…

Weekend update: To all who said that this is Mt Rainier – you are right. It is Mt Rainier, as it was seen from the Mt Si. I hiked there one evening to take some sunset photos and really didn’t know what to expect and what I’d see from the top of it. I thought that I’d see in far west Seattle skyscrapers, and maybe on a super clear day you can see them, but it was hazy and cloudy and you could see nothing interesting to the west, except setting sun. To the south you could see this lovely view.

Bethesda Art

I posted a version of this photo via Twitter last night (see on the right), and then decided to take the high resolution copy of the photo and post it as well. Kind of cool street art there in Bethesda MD.

There is another mural couple blocks from this spot, I’ll try to take a photo of it as well, I like street art like this.

Pirates of the 21st Century

All they are missing are some cannons and a few AK47, otherwise probably have enough speed to take on that big tanker. Fortunately it is all happening in nice and safe waters of Mediterranean and not off the Somalia coast.

We had lunch at nice restaurant, seating right at the edge of the cliff, above nice lagoon with people sunbathing and swimming, observing tourist boats going in and from the little harbor. Good times!

Ruby Beach

Ahh, the Pacific North West, its ragged and wild beauty. I only visited it a few times and loved every one of them. So different from the East coast. We just might move somewhere there one day and live for some time, experience it all first hand for a bit.

I have been a bit of a Netflix addict lately, watching a few different shows simultaneously, not all at the same time of course. Like on weekends we are watching 1-2 episodes of the “Twin Peaks”. Never heard of it prior to two weeks ago, awesome show, absolutely hilarious, and the phrase “Nothing like a great cup of black coffee”  as said by Agent Cooper is probably going to be adopted by me too, as it is really true. Have you seen it?

Window Patterns

I took this photo a while back from my hotel window of a nearby office building. I had a long zoom lens on my hands at the time and it allowed me to zoom into it and get tight for it.

It was taken at the angle as it shows by the horizontal lines. During post processing I tried to turn it and make the horizontal lines to align with the outside lines, but it didn’t look right. So I left it as is. This is how you’d see it as well if you stay at that same hotel in Washington DC.
