09 Aug Snapshot of the Week: The Washington Monument
Living right outside DC, I see the Washington Monument all the time! Despite the relative normalcy of it, whenever I pass it by I always bring out my phone to snap a quick picture.
Except, one day about a month ago, I was walking by the stone obelisk. It was ridiculously, incredibly hot, and we had been walking over an hour. I gave a half-hearted glance at the monument and thought “eh, I don’t need a pic this time.”
But after taking a moment to stop and rest, in boredom I decided to take a quick shot. “Why not?”
I’m so glad I did, because capturing the monument silhouetted with wisps of clouds in a bright blue sky left me with my all-time favorite pictures of the monument that I’ve ever taken.
