It would be a cool project to photograph every cathedral, church or other place like this around the world. As long as they are pretty inside. Most places like this made with impressive architecture and some great art. Made to impress you.
National Cathedral is not an exception. It is pretty inside and outside.
If you’d like to see it in higher resolution then just click on the image to open in my photo gallery.
It is cool how chimneys outlive the houses that they once provided warms and were one of the central parts of interior and exterior of the house. I’m sure you have seen many of them standing lonely in empty fields, reminding us that someone use to live there. I try to imagine the house that it is use be part off and how long ago it disappeared. Each one has a long history and will stand there probably for many more decades, outliving most of us.
This is the third photo from the same location with little fountains. I took this one fairly recently. I had one hour to kill before my flight from Reagan, the clouds were going wild and I decided to do a quick swing by the National Mall. Sunset was about one hour away, with sun behind me popping in out from the clouds.
In yesterday post I shown my first photo of the Washington Monument, taken back in the summer. I came back here later in the Fall, but in the evening, I wanted to see how it looks with all of those lights illuminating the place.
Over the last few years I’ve been travelling to Washington DC area fairly often. During all that time I actually didn’t take many pictures, so about 6 month ago I decided to fix this problem and take some photos of our capital.
I took photo of Washington Monument from this spot on three different occasions, every time in very different conditions. So over the next three days I’ll post each of them in chronological order and let you decide which one you like most or not. I kind of like them all, but I’m biased, you know.
The first photo was taken in the middle of the day in July. It was hot and sticky out there, we walked DC for hours, our feet burned form hot asphalt and concrete side walks. We came to this monument and decided to relax for a few minutes. We actually took our shoes off and set on steps next to the pool and put our feet in the water. Perfect way to get them in order for a few more hours of walking… I was looking at the monument and kind of liked what I saw, the picture was born.
