Some images of the Washington National Cathedral that I took during an Aug. 19 visit.

Washington National Cathedral: Details









The Washington National Cathedral is huge. It is the sixth largest cathedral in the world and the second largest in the U.S. It is 30 stories high and about two football fields long. If you live in Washington, you can see it from miles away -- day or night. Above are some details of the cathderal that I shot during an Aug. 19 visit.

"Air Jaws"

I was going through some old camera flash cards the other night when I came across this image of pre-historic shark jaws. I took it during a December 2007 trip to the American Museum of Natural History in New York with my trusty Canon A610 PowerShot.

Arlington Memorial Bridge (And Some Geese)




Here are some pictures of the Arlington Memorial Bridge that I took on Aug. 12. The bridge, completed in 1932, connects the Lincoln Memorial with Arlington National Cemetery across the Potomac River.
This is a shot that I've wanted to do for some time. I scouted locations, noted the light and carefully considered which lens to use. The geese were not planned, of course. They were a late, but welcome, addition to the shoot.
