Supreme Court Building, Washington, DC. Glad I was traveling light here -- very tight security to get into and on the tour of the building. No photography in the main courtroom. This was pretty typical weather while we were there -- cold, grey, and rainy. Nikon Coolpix L20, 1/64 sec at f/3.1, contrast and color bumped up a little in Nik Color Efex.
In early December, Kim and I made a trip to Washington, DC. I knew I'd be going in and out of places where a large camera wasn't allowed so decided to use only a small point & shoot and an iphone. Thought I'd post some of these images over the next week or so. There's a certain freedom when traveling light and unincumbured with a large camera and the associated gear, and I have to say I really enjoyed it. The photo above was the Christmas tree in the Smithsonian Castle on the National Mall. Nikon Coolpix L20, 1/15 sec at f/3.1 handheld, ISO400.
