Summer heat fizzles. Green leaves turn brown. Leaves fall. Temperature drops. Raindrops turn to snow. Snow melts and temperature rise. Flower blooms and leaves appear. These are the things that marks the changing of the seasons. The photo above shows the sun setting and illuminating the leafless trees scattered around the park. I stopped to take this photo to remind me of how amazing our world is and how lucky we are to witness miracles like the changing seasons.
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 Washington Monument is an obelisk built to honor the first American president, George Washington. This photo was taken from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. I arrived early at the Lincoln Memorial. It was still dark and a bit chilly. When the first few lights appeared on the horizon, I took photos of the beauty in front of me.
The Lincoln Memorial is a monument built to honor Abraham Lincoln who is the 16th President of the US. It is located in Washington, DC and it became a symbolic venue during the Civil Rights movement. It has appeared in several movies and you will see it on dollar bills. Aside from this, it is also a perfect place to catch the sunrise in DC. This photo was taken around 5:30 in the morning when the sky is just about to get a bit of light and waiting for the sun to wake up.
It’s time to dress up in costumes and let your creative juices flow! It’s a fun time of the year where you can wear costumes and get loads of sweets going around trick or treating (for kids anyway). Happy Halloween!
St. Patrick’s Cathedral is located in Manhattan, New York City. It is a Roman Catholic Church built in 1858 with Neo-Gothic style. During the day, a lot of people visit this place either to attend mass or be on tour to discover the history and beauty inside the church. If you are in the area, why don’t you drop by and say a little prayer?
In Greek mythology, Atlas is the Titan who is holding up the celestial sphere on his shoulder. Looking at Atlas, I bet he is the first ‘backpacker’ ever because backpackers have everything they need in the backpack. 🙂
