Photo Post – Fall Images

The Main House

As mentioned in a previous post, the fall has been rather quiet. But I’m still trying to go out and make some interesting images in the DC area.

In October, I joined a group to photograph the Arthur Godfrey Estate near Leesburg. Built in the 1920’s, the property was owned for many years by the legendary broadcaster and then later by a member of the Saudi royal family.

Picturing the Street

Fuji x t3

Last Saturday, I ventured into DC for an afternoon workshop on street photography in and around Lafayette Square. This is an area west of the White House you may have seen on the news. For decades, it has hosted demonstrations, protests, and lots of tourists.

Picture Post #16

It has been a while since I posted one of these collections, although the entries about our Cuba trip last November includes some nice photos.

Anyway, here are a few random shots from the past few weeks, with more, as always, in my Flickr feed.

Something Ugly

My friend Kathy and I have made a commitment to go out and practice our photo skills more often this year. This was from a morning we spent at Glen Echo Park, a legendary amusement park in the DC area that closed in 1968 and now operated as a cultural center.

Reflection

Getting artsy, this is the reflection of trees and the sky in one of the windows of the Glen Echo carousel, which still operates but not during the winter. The windows are from an earlier time and have a lot of imperfections that cause the swirl.

 Metal Typer

One more shot from Glen Echo, this is a classic arcade machine on display in one of the buildings that would stamp letters into the coins you deposit. A sign on top strongly discouraged dropping money into the machine since it is not functional. Wonder how many people ignore it.

Christmas Shoes

Some of the shoe ornaments Kathy had hanging on her Christmas tree. What is it with ladies and their shoes? :-)

Chinese Aligator

A Chinese alligator at the Cincinnati Zoo. It really blended in well with the surroundings and moved very little as we stared at it.

Cookies

Just a nice arrangement of cookies.

Picture Post #4

Some images from my walks through a couple of neighborhoods in DC in November. More recent shots are at the top of my Flickr feed. For many additional photos of DC, check the washingtondc tag.

Copper Reflection

A copper bowl, used as part of a store window holiday display, reflects parts of Georgetown in the morning sun, and a little of the photographer.

Capitol Repair

View of the US Capitol building (behind the scaffold hiding an extensive renovation) on a gray fall morning. If you’re in DC, visit the Newseum and head for the sixth floor balcony for great vistas of the monuments along Pennsylvania Avenue.

Pot Dealer

Pretty sure the window of this Georgetown store refers to their kitchenware.

Breakfast

Not all windows in Georgetown feature expensive objects for sale.
