WorldWide PhotoWalk DC

Hey gang I’m back.  I got a new computer that makes posting images so much easier.  I promise to try and post a lot more frequently.  These images were taken during the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk.  Hosted by the Original Photowalk Master, Jeff Revell in Washington DC.  It was 50 degrees, cloudy, windy and raining lightly on and off.  Mostly just a mist to a light drizzle, just enough to make you cold, not enough to ruin any picture taking opportunities.

We started at the Smithsonian Metro stop and walked all the way down to the Lincoln Memorial then through the Vietnam and Korean War Memorials, over to the Martin Luther King Memorial and back to the Metro stop.  Jeff said it was about three miles. We took about three hours to cover it.  If you happened to see the group shot on Jeff’s site you can see me in the middle in the second row.

We always have a fun time talking to new people and making new friends.  Although I was bummed that my first Photowalk buddy Mike Palmer didn’t make it this year.  That’s because he is a lot smarter than the rest of us and probably stayed home in front of a nice warm fire sipping hot chocolate.

 

So I  think this was my favorite spot on the whole walk.  This is the Korean War Memorial. It was really eerie when we first walked into the area.  It suddenly got very quiet and all you could hear were a few crickets chirping.  You couldn’t hear any traffic and nobody was talking.  The light rain had started again which goes along with the soldiers in their rain ponchos. The soldiers are a little bigger than life size as if they were all about 6’5″ to 7′ tall. Very life like.  It was almost like you were on patrol with them.
