Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pick A Topic from My Photo

Jefferson Memorial from across the Tidal Basin, golden hour, Fuji X100T

Fuji X100T, fixed 23mm 2.0 lens, f/10, ISO 200, tripod
HDR composite (1/50, 1/60, 1/80 sec)

While taking golden hour shots of the Washington Monument, I happened to look toward the Jefferson Memorial, saw the beautiful light on its dome, and just had to get a picture. It’s not too far from where I was to the Jefferson, but I did feel compelled to run so that I could get some shots and still have time to return to the Washington to continue shooting there. Now running for me is not easily accomplished, and if I had been carrying my Nikon kit, darn near impossible. But I was carrying the Fuji x100T, my MeFOTO travel tripod, and a very small backpack, so off I went. This was the happy result.

As it turns out, the photo fits a few of the themes of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week (water, reflection, lines,  and rules of thirds), another happy result. If you haven’t participated in Cee’s challenges, definitely check out Cee’s Photography for all of her weekly offerings: Odd Ball (Sunday), Fun Foto (Tuesday), Which Way (Wednesday), and Black and White (Thursday). She is an incredibly supportive host, talented photographer, and all-around wonderfully nice person!

  1. such a wonderful capture of the light and I love the children in the foreground as well.
    The trees framing the shot add so much.
    I’m so envious of all that you, and Cee, and others are doing with the camera and the challenges. For now, I’ll have to be content to visit. Someday I’ll do more!


    • Awww, Laurie, don’t be envious! You’re doing something so incredibly awesome that many of us would never have the courage to do! You keep doing what you’re doing, my friend. We all applaud you!! Thanks so much for the visit ❤️
