More Christmas Lights

I thought I was done shooting Christmas/Holiday Lights.. But then I drove by this house Friday night in Takoma Park, Maryland and had to pull over and shoot it. I think the positioning of the cross in the doorway is very cool.

The Holiday's in Washington

Had the day off today, and two days before Christmas, I was able to make a trip to the Washingon's Ellipse. These photograph's were taken during what photographer's call the "blue hour" or the "magical hour" the time right after the sun sets, but the sky is not dark yet. Happy Holiday's everyone!!

"The Bishops House" Holiday Lights

For more than 30 years DC/Maryland residents have been flocking to this house every December. It's called "the bishops house" is occupied by the leader of the D.C.-based United House of Prayer for All People. This year, it's on my route to and from work, but Saturday Night I finally stopped to take some photographs.

The Air Force Memorial @ Night

Decided to make a little trip tonight after work to the Air Force Memorial in Arlington, VA. While most people try to shoot the monument from a far, or with DC in the back drop, my goal tonight was to take a photographs from close up and looking up. I think I got a couple that weren't bad. The sky was very cloudy!

Weekend Snow Showers in Silver Spring

It snowed a little Saturday Night in Silver Spring (and the DC area). I tried to capture some of the snow, and wasn't quite expecting this photo. But someone said it look like something from a fairy tale?

Happy Holiday's Silver Spring Style

Took in the holiday sights tonight in the neighborhood. Santa wasn't at the City Place Mall, however his chair (along with the camera, lights, and cash register) were all waiting for his return. And there was a 20 percent off sale of Christmas Tree Bling at Pier 1.

More from Beacon Falls, CT

A few more pictures from Beacon Falls, Connecticut. The old train car and train stop was a very cool place to explore! And it's not everyday you see a fly fisher. It made me think of something from the Pacific Northwest.

Not sure if the Christmas wreath in the woods got their via human or mother nature. The little kid in the window was taken yesterday at BWI Airport in Maryland.

Thanksgiving Parade in Silver Spring Pt. 2

More pictures from yesterday's parade in my neighborhood. As you can tell, I took a bunch of pictures with sepia which was fun to change things up. The parade ended with a visit by Santa Claus delighting the young parade goers!

Thanksgiving Parade in Silver Spring Pt. 1

Thanksgiving Day was celebrated a little early in Silver Spring. The county (Montgomery) parade was this morning. And as you tell from the last picture, it was a cold morning to take in a parade. Nerveless, I could not avoid the opportunity to take some parade pictures in my neighborhood. I will post some more pictures tomorrow!

Cool Photo from Georgetown

So 30 days ago I joined this web site called The mission of the web site is to try to post one photo everyday (or every couple days) on your own calendar. Taking a photo everyday is pretty hard, but tonight I wanted to do something different. On my way home from work, I drove thru the neighborhoods of Georgetown. I passed Dumbarton Oaks, which is a research library and collection run by the Trustees for Harvard University. I saw this cool gate, and looked in and got this pretty cool picture.

Rock Creek Park Part 1

After a long week at work, it was nice to get outside today and take in some fall scenery. I went to to Rock Creek Park (which stretches from Maryland into DC).. The first picture is a reflection of another photographer in DC taking pictures. I took a lot of pictures, but decided just to show eight. I will post the other four tomorrow!
