Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

photo (12)

We always do selfies when we travel. I’m not a narcissist or something. I do it to remember the place/s I’ve been to and to have a souvenir. Sometimes, I get lucky when someone will be there to take a picture of me when I travel. When you travel solo, you eventually learn the art of taking selfies be it a camera phone or a camera. This photo was taken at the Taj Mahal in India.

The Washington National Cathedral, also known as Cathedral Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, was built in 1907 and has a neo-Gothic design which is a mixture of the various Gothic designs in the Middle Ages. It has pointed arches, stained-glass windows and carved stones as decorations. It is the fourth-tallest structure in Washington DC and has the highest point as well which is the Gloria in Excelsis Tower at 676 ft above sea level.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

DC DSC_0620

I walked towards the obelisk better known as the Washington Monument after watching the sunrise from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. When I looked back, I couldn’t help but take a picture of what I was seeing. This is the photo I took which shows the Lincoln Memorial and its reflection. The reflecting pool on this photo is the same one I used on this post (Photo of the Day – Washington).
