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!
