• what is neat is considering that it's probably ten-ish and check out all the people still hanging out the memorial! even inside, by lincoln, was still packed!

    Great night shot. Was there a lot of post work done to this shot? It's perfect.

    thanks!!

    none actually. they are all in jpeg so i could only do so much to it anyway. but for this i just cropped a sign that i noticed on the right and left well enough alone.

    A nice night view of all the people on the steps of the memorial.

    thanks!!

    i think they were tourists, but for all i know they were homeless people with cameras ;)

    the story would be better if they were homeless. Could you herd some to the Jefferson Memorial, it is closer to town...

  6. joschmoblo 96 months ago | reply

    lol ... yea it would be more typical i'm told if they were homeless. you know that is one of the place i never made it to. i got photos but it was on the other side of something i think and i had lost my map at the time!!!

    thanks micky!!

    From west to east: Lincoln, Washington and Jefferson Memorials. The Washington is in the middle. If you head straight down the Potomac towards the Washington Monument and walk twice as far then you will arrive at the Jefferson Memorial.

    thanks vicker!

    well how in the world did i miss it then?? i lost my map about 20 minutes into walking the first day. so i spent the reast of the 7 hours or so roaming hoping to just find what i wanted and asking for directions to the metro. that night we went to target and bought one of those really nice laminated maps. worth every penny too!!!

    is it behind the capitol building? i remember seeing something on the other side of some busy road. i thought that was the jefferson memorial, but i'm not certain. i'll have to look at a map and see.

    what were you doing, camping on the mall? Get a map for free from the hotel. The Jefferson Memorial is south of Washington Monument between DC and DCA/National Airport. Yes, on the drive. No, nowhere near the capitol, wrong direction. I thought you said you could find your way around?

  11. joschmoblo 96 months ago | reply

    lol .. yea pretty much that first day. that's a lot of walking!!!

    well, the map i had was getting destroyed in my back pocket anyway. it was so hot and the map was falling to pieces so it was almost a blessing when it put itself out of its misery!!! at least the laminated one was immune to my torturing :)

    lol ... yea, i think i'm getting myself turned around ... long day at work and did not get home until after midnight .. of course that's my excuse for tonight, what is it for the rest of the time?? :o)

  12. racingsquirrel 96 months ago | reply

    you use a map too?

  13. joschmoblo 96 months ago | reply

    when i first got there i was completely dependent on it. then, twenty minutes later, in lost the D2mn thing and was crap .. now what?!?! so i just walked and walked until i found my way around.

  14. racingsquirrel 96 months ago | reply

    yep, just keep walking towards the big things, they must be important!

  15. joschmoblo 96 months ago | reply

    it works for me except i ended up making a few loops and loops .. lol!

  16. racingsquirrel 96 months ago | reply

    I'm driving then

  17. joschmoblo 96 months ago | reply

    drive in downtown dc ... during the day??? no way!!!

  18. racingsquirrel 96 months ago | reply

    i never drive there, I meant in general

  19. joschmoblo 96 months ago | reply

    i see.... well it depends on where and how far for me. if it's around here in downtown, i'll walk it since it's impossible. out in BFE or something ... yea i'll drive. some days i just like to go joy riding for a bit though. it seems like i do that most days when gas is crazy expensive here!
