Thanks Roy! After all the comliments on the Fish Eye, I guess I may have to keep this lens after all. It has its special uses (about 2 to 3 times a year) when I'm glad I own it.

There is sooooo much to do and see in DC. As I mentioned before, this is my 3rd visit. We've taken it in in small doses. If you go, you should visit the recently opened flag exhibit at the Smithsonian. Anyone who contemplates burning the flag as an expression of free speech will have a change of heart. Arlington National is also a must see spot. DC is a place to be reminded of Great Americans and be reminded how grateful one is to be American.

Very nice! For some reason I really like the back shot of the WH. I also like the treasury/statue shot. When I first saw the natural history museum shot, I was wondering how you got the entire rotunda in... but then I saw you were using an ultra-wide (is that what it's called?) lens. I was like "must acquire", LOL. Thanks for sharing.

LadyRo: Thanks for your comments! The shot of the Treasury Department as well as the interior of the NHM were shot with the Pentax DA 10-17mm Fish-Eye Lens.

The back of the W/H is the traditional view. Unfotunately, with security what it is today, that's the closest and only perspective of the south side of it!

it is nearly 12 months since i was taken to DC and shown around\
unfortunately time or lack of it meant i didnt get to see tplaces like the whitehouse, or anything off the main strip
i did get into the natural history museum (likely why we ran out of time lol ) and was fascinated with it
i also found the fisheye a handy lens to have (i think i used it for 90% of my photos, ooopppss)
and did a similar shot at the next place to the right of yours
i like your series of photos and am appreciative of the photos of places i didnt get to see, thanks for sharing

if you are intereseted my take on DC is here
