Washington DC Photo Weekend

Joe took me on a little road trip to DC last weekend. We actually visited Baltimore as well, and ended up only spending about 5 hours in DC, but it was really nice to get away! (After our drive to and from Michigan over Thanksgiving, a drive to Maryland is like a cake walk.) Although it was really cold, we had a great time wandering down the National Mall. My fingers froze and my camera battery was low (it conked out after about a half hour!) but here are a few snaps I thought you might enjoy:

I love it that there were still a few leaves on the trees here, but everyone was still bundled up in their hats and mittens:

Maybe I got a little carried away with the flags. I just enjoyed the patterns.

Inauguration Art Project

I love a big art project. Especially when it’s a community effort. And so, I bring you this link to the very cool “Photosynth” created from tons of photos submitted to CNN during the Inauguration yesterday. If you haven’t already had a chance to see it, go check it out right now!

I don’t know exactly how many people submitted photos to this project, but I have to believe it was a pretty large number considering the crowd in DC yesterday. I admit, I was glued to the TV just like the rest of America. And the world, for that matter. Now, even though I wasn’t there to be a part of the photo-making, I’m thankful for everyone who submitted an image to this 3D synth. Pretty cool, eh?

Do you have any great Inauguration photos or stories that you’d like to share with the world? I’d love to see em!
