    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.
  • joschmoblo PRO 9y

    thanks!!

    i think they were tourists, but for all i know they were homeless people with cameras ;)
  • Stephan PRO 9y

    the story would be better if they were homeless. Could you herd some to the Jefferson Memorial, it is closer to town...
  • Micky** PRO 9y

    Cool!
  • joschmoblo PRO 9y

    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.
  • Stephan PRO 9y

    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?
  • joschmoblo PRO 9y

    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)
  • Stephan PRO 9y

    you use a map too?
  • joschmoblo PRO 9y

    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.
  • Stephan PRO 9y

    yep, just keep walking towards the big things, they must be important!
  • joschmoblo PRO 9y

    it works for me except i ended up making a few loops and loops .. lol!
  • Stephan PRO 9y

    I'm driving then
  • joschmoblo PRO 9y

    drive in downtown dc ... during the day??? no way!!!
  • Stephan PRO 9y

    i never drive there, I meant in general
  • joschmoblo PRO 9y

    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!
