DC DSC_0750

The Obelisk, also known as the Washington Monument, is a four-sided pillar which tapers as it rises with the edges meeting at the topmost tip. It is made up of marble, granite and gneiss and is considered as the world’s tallest stone structure.

The Capitol sits atop Capitol Hill and is the meeting place of the US Congress. It is the basis of the city planning and it divides the District into east and west. It has a Neoclassical design with its own reflecting pool. The photo above was taken on a windy day and I couldn’t take a clear reflection on the water.

The National World War II Memorial was built to honor those who fought during the war and also for those who supported the fight for peace. It has 56 pillars to represent the US states, territories and the District of Columbia at the time of war. This photo shows the fountain and half of the pillars (the other half behind me).

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).

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Renewal is a process of renewing, of making something new, of restoring the vigor or simply to begin again. Everyday, we are given several chances to correct mistakes or errors that we made. If you can correct it, great! But if you can’t, then learn from that mistake. As the sun rises to a brand new day, always remember that life has given you another chance to live and fulfill your dreams.
