I took a walking tour of Washington, DC last week. Here are a few photos.

First, the Washington Monument, honoring the USA's first president. This was taken from the observation tower in the Old Post Office. The Old Post Office is the second-tallest structure in the city (the Washington Monument is the tallest). In fact, there is a city law that says no buildings can be taller than the Washington Monument.

This second photo was also taken from the Old Post Office tower. This is the Lincoln Memorial, honoring the USA's sixteenth president, who held the country together during our nineteenth century Civil War.

In the top left quadrant (behind the Memorial Bridge), one can see some of the tombstones at Arlington National Cemetery (the USA's military cemetery).

This next one is the Jefferson Memorial, honoring the USA's third president and the primary author of the Declaration of Independence.

Great city and great monuments. I see 3 of the 4 every morning on my way to work at the Washington Navy Yard. I don't see the White House.

Those are nice pictures! Although some are just a tiny bit over-exposed(i think?). I go there with my grandpa sometimes.

Nice interpretation especially considering it's winter time in Washington. Lots of monotones in the town and I think your pick of B&W works well.

Here's a link to my pictures from last April when I took a day off and hit the tourist trial in DC - http://www.flickr.com/photos/stoney_g/sets/223032/

Thanks for sharing!

I like the shots. They have an old timey feel to them and its a good set.

Is it just me though or are they all rotated just a few degrees counter-clockwise?
