Arlington National Cemetery

During the summer of 2007 my family spent a week in Washington D.C. I had always wanted to see the fireworks display that is presented on the Main Mall for the 4th of July, and this vacation allowed me to see it. I may post several pictures form that vacation, because I was pleased with a number of the architectural pictures I took.

In this picture, you see the columns of the amphitheater at Arlington National Cemetery. It looks like the place is deserted, but actually there are 100s of people all around. I stood very still with my camera at the ready, just waiting on that instant that all people were shrouded by the cover of one of the columns for just a second to snap the picture. It was very challenging, but I think the result is a great looking picture.
