iPhone Photo of the Week – 16

This past weekend, my wife and I went to Washington D.C. for a little weekend getaway and to enjoy our nation’s capital. When we go to cities, we like to plan some things, but for the most part, we just like to walk around and explore the city and not stick to a set itinerary.

Of course, that being said, the photo of the week is of one of the most visible landmarks in DC, the Washington Monument.

I really like this picture because of how the light of the sun is reflecting off the side of the monument, but only half of the side, because of the cloudy weather.

A couple of other pictures that I considered for photo of the week are below:

Also, I did take some comparative pictures with my new iPhone and old iPhone during the trip so I am hoping to get that post out during this upcoming weekend. Until then, enjoy your week!

Building Profile: Demoss Hall

In an attempt to diversify my photography and thanks to inspiration from seeing other bloggers’ work, I’ve decided to do periodic (preferably weekly) profiles of buildings that I see all the time, but take for granted.

Today’s building profile looks at the Arthur S. Demoss Learning Center (more popularly known as Demoss Hall). Demoss Hall houses a vast majority of classes for Liberty University’s residential students. Demoss is one of the oldest buildings on campus as well as one of the largest. At four stories tall, it’s grand entrance with white columns, a beautiful fountain, and a wide staircase is an icon of the university’s campus.DSC_1122

iPhone Photo of the Week (Week 6)

Finally, a change from the weekly flower pictures! On Thursday, when I was walking to my 7:40am class at Demoss Hall, I noticed through my grogginess that the sun shining on the front of Demoss was a nice, warm yellow color. Thankfully I was awake enough to not want to look like a fool stopping to take a picture of Demoss on the way to class so I slyly pulled my phone out, opened the camera and held the camera at my hip and snapped the photo while I walked in.
