Foto Friday is a feature on Get Busy Livin’ and will run regularly, you guessed it, every Friday. This will be my opportunity to display some of my photography, as well as a short story to go with the photograph.
Today’s photo came from a recent business trip to the Washington D.C. area. My client flew me in the day before, so I made my way from the airport down to the national mall to catch the last weekend of the Cherry Blossom Festival. I had been to D.C. a few times prior, but always missed the cherry blossoms, so I definitely wanted to take advantage of this trip.
I parked over by the western side of the Smithsonian buildings and walked for the next 4-5 hours to photograph the cherry blossoms and all of the national monuments. I got some great photos of the Franklin memorial framed by cherry blossom trees, however, this one is one of my favorites from the trip. The tree line I am standing under frame out the Washington Monument very nicely, and the sky even cooperated too.
Washington D.C. is truly one of the most magnificent areas of this country, with all of the history, architecture and stories to tell, I have spent a few days here, but definitely could spend a few weeks and not see all of it!
