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 nationโ€™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!

Going to DC!

Tomorrow morning, my girlfriend Ashley and I, along with another couple we are friends with, are going on a day trip to Washington D.C! When Ashley and I went in the fall with the school’s bus trip it ended up raining and we were unable to do much after visiting the Newseum (which I highly recommend visiting if you go to DC).

We’re excited to see that tomorrow’s forecast is mostly sunny, zero precent chance of rain and a high of 60 degrees! Also, according to the national park service, peak bloom for the cherry blossoms is predicted to come between April 8-12. Although we’re going 3 days before that range begins, we’re hoping to see a beautiful tidal basin!

We also hope to visit the Museum of Natural History as well as the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials. Ashley and I have never gotten to go to the Jefferson Memorial and Ashley has not been to the Lincoln Memorial either so it will be an exciting new experience for both of us! We hope to get lots of great pictures while we’re there so keep an eye on our blogs following this weekend!
