Veterans Day

In Olympus OM-D, Uncategorized, Washington DC by Robert Lussier1 Comment

It is Veterans Day here in the US. The day we honor the service of all who served in the military. With so many friends and family members who served, it is a holiday I am always mindful of. So when I was in DC a couple of weeks ago for the Marine Corps Marathon …

Here Rests in Honored Glory

I wasn’t expecting to be away from my blog for a full week, but between my trip to DC, the Red Sox in the World Series (and winning!) and re-engaging with the real job, I have found it hard to get back to the blog. But that ends today. I’m back. So about that hiatus …

Washington Monument

This looks like it will be my final blog post of 2012, so I’ll leave you with a shot of the Washington Monument from my October trip to DC. There is no significance to it, I just liked the stark black and white of this late night shot. 2012 was a very productive year for me. …

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, or Hanukkah (or whatever you celebrate) and are geared up for a fantastic New Year. I look forward to this post every year.

I didn’t plan to post another shot from DC today. It just worked out that way. (Click on the image to supersize it) This is, of course, the World War II Memorial at night, shot from the Atlantic Pavilion. The monument is spectacular to behold at any time of day, but it is especially awe …

In This Temple

Well, it looks like this week without a theme is turning into a black and white week. I guess I’ll keep that going through Friday. This is another shot from my DC trip at the end of October. It is the third shot I’ve posted from the Lincoln Memorial and, while not my favorite, I …

Lincoln

I will, most likely, be taking a break from posting tomorrow as I observe Thanksgiving with my family. I don’t have any images of Plymouth Plantation, the Mayflower or Plymouth Rock to honor the holiday, but I do have this image of the Lincoln Memorial. “How is that appropriate?” you ask. Well until 1863, different …

Abe

There are two benefits to shooting the Lincoln Memorial late at night. First, there is the dramatic lighting. Second, the thin crowds increase your chances of getting a shot that isolates Abe. Third, there is a better chance that the rangers will look the other way when you set up a tripod — There are …
