Like many of you, I read the post yesterday on The Daily Post about adding features to your blog, and in reading this post, it struck me that I’ve dropped my features in the last few months. I’ve been meaning to add something back here, but I haven’t quite gotten around to it: Until now.
I’ve thought about doing a Photo of the Week for some time, but I haven’t done it, more than anything because I know that my photos aren’t very good. When you add the fact that I have a number of “real” photographers as followers, and well, you get he idea…
Then I thought about a post I did last year in the “journey” series about spiritual disciplines, and remembering that one of them was about my photography, I decided to just go for it. The plan is every Tuesday afternoon (Eastern Time) and I’d post a photo and then tell a little about the picture. Every so often, I’ll make it more of a photo essay.
The first of these is the photo above. I took this about a month ago on a Friday evening. I was pleasantly surprised at the result, since I couldn’t be sure I was getting this scene. As you can see, the Lincoln Memorial is in the distance with part of the WW2 Memorial to the left where the flag is fluttering in the breeze, back-lit by the setting sun. I am standing at the base of the Washington Monument with full zoom, and as best I can tell, I got lucky!
