The windy city, at least for tonight

I hope Max will forgive me for treading on his usual domain, but when searching for an image on flickr to join my commenting on the gales outside I came across this shot. I expect that with gusts up to fifty mph we may see some shots tomorrow that look more like this, but I loved this shot from Aaron Edwards of a rippling flag around our monument.

A good friend of mine, when visiting DC, is always tickled by the sight of the Capitol dome. To her that’s the quintessential DC image. For me it’s the Washington Monument, and it’s hard for me not to smile when I catch sight of it, however distantly. Is there any one sight that, for you, is the epitome of DC?

    That is a sweet shot, Don. It almost looks like a painting! Nice post processing work. Oh and I have to agree, the Washington Monument is my favorite sight in this city. I love driving home from work and seeing it in the warm evening hue. Between it, the Lincoln, and the Kennedy Center, it’s a great feeling driving into DC.

    This is a bittersweet shot for me but I like it more now seeing it here.

    This was taken during “that trip” to DC – the one when my camera was stolen. All of the images stored on my memory card that I was so looking forward to seeing once I returned home disappeared with the camera.

    I borrowed a friends and was able to get some photos in the short amount of time left on that trip.
