The image in this post was created during the 2014 Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC. I will always have fond memories of that great morning and it's surreal atmosphere with hundreds of photographers surrounding the DC Tidal Basin awaiting the sunrise.
Happy Friday! It's the Memorial Day weekend here in the U S, also known as the unofficial start of Summer. Many will head for the beaches and enjoy cookouts and other outdoor activities. But first and foremost it's a time of remembrance. I'll have a special post here Monday, the actual holiday.
Today we view a DC morning with one of it's iconic structures, the Washington Monument. This image was taken the morning after this curbside view posted earlier. It is a simple street scene taken before the town breaks out into it's typical crowded and rushed existence.
