Are you guys watching this show? I like how they start each episode with series of time lapses from all over the city, with some cool angles, pretty much always showing one of the monuments or the Capitol.
I took this photo from the top floor at the Key Bridge Marriott, they have a conference rooms on the top, so you can just go up the elevator and take some photos. Of course to see Washington Monument this close you’ll need pretty good zoom, it is fairly far away.
Easy one for you fellas this week. Have a nice weekend everyone!
A few years ago I stayed over night in Cambridge with my windows facing south with nice view over Boston. Some snowstorm was passing by with some moody and cloudy skies. I have heard that this hotel has an observation deck on the top floor. They were closed that night, maybe they are open in the summer. I’ll be back in Boston in early June, maybe stay at this place again and check it out.
Before visiting Hagia Sophia I had no idea that it is not a practicing Mosque anymore. So before going there we stopped at our hotel and I changed my shorts to pants. You can’t wear shorts in Mosque. It was the middle of summer, around 95F and high humidity, needless to say wearing pants was not super comfortable. I was super annoyed to see all other tourists going through ticket office and none wearing pants. Doing some research prior to visit would avoid this, but I rarely do a lot of research as I don’t like to have a lot of different expectations about places I visit.
Note for next visit to Hagia Sophia – you don’t have to wear clothes that would be required to have in normal Mosque.
The inside was impressive. See it for your self. I shared another photo while back, The View of the Heavens.
For sure, right now I’d rather be there on the warm beach than in the still wintery North Carolina. How about you?
This was our last day in Puerto Rico and I managed to get up for some sunrise views and enjoy a bit more of this nice place. We stayed at Hilton which has its own private beach access and nice views east for sunrise photos.
I remember it to be really nice sunset there in Washington DC. Colors were really playing nicely in the clouds and allowed me to take a few nice photos. Right now it is probably under some snow from the recent snowstorm, but it probably provides some nice opportunities for photos as well.

We are under assault of another winter storm and I hope everyone is staying safe and warm. We don’t have snow too often in NC, so if I’m around when it happens I try to take some photos around my house. It just look prettier with little sparkle. Yesterday I also took a quick time lapse video of the falling snow on my deck, it was growing from nothing to a few inches in a matter of couple hours. Check it out right after the photo.
