We lived in the DC area from 2003 to 2008 and we loved it, particularly the historic area of DC with all the old neoclassical buildings. Here is a gallery of photographs of some of those buildings, including a few from Union Station, which is not only a train station but also a connection to DC’s metrorail system.
As hinted in a previous post, here are more photos from Rockville, MD. Some were taken in the historic district and the rest in the city’s modern downtown.
Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂
There are so many interesting historic buildings in Tg. Mures, Romania. When you’re downtown, pretty much everywhere you look you can find a building that has stood the test of time and presents various architectural details that catch the eye (or the lens). I think what sets this city’s architectural heritage apart from other cities I’ve visited is that its historic buildings are so varied in their architecture and decorations, unlike other towns where most of the architecture sticks to common themes. Complicated reliefs and daring color schemes adorn these buildings and most of them are remarkably well preserved over time.
Here’s a collection of photographs I think you’ll like. I took them in 2007 and 2009. I snuck in a couple of modern sights which sadly detract from the beauty of the city. Do what I do, try to ignore them…
Should you be interested in licensing any of these photos (or any of my other photos), you might want to read through my terms.
Try to guess where these photos were taken; some of the images might be readily recognizable to you if you’re from the DC area. If you’re wondering about the processing, they were captured on 35mm film with an Exakta EXA Ia camera, scanned in from the negatives and edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.
A few days back, you got to see what 17th St NW looks like. Now you’ll see 15th St NW, which passes the White House on the other side of the Ellipse. Among the photos, you’ll the US Department of Commerce, the Willard Washington Hotel, the Boy Scout Memorial, the Pershing Memorial, the Department of the Treasury and other interesting sights. Be sure to view the full gallery at the end of the post, which contains 30 photos. I only posted a select few below.
There are a couple of old churches at the Chevy Chase Village Circle, in the DC area. One is Presbyterian and the other is Catholic. Here are several photos I took of them, back in 2007.
Here are a few photos taken on a DC street you may not know by name, but you may recognize once you see the photos (hint: it passes by the White House).
These are more photos taken on Constitution Ave in Washington, DC and continue the series started here. Enjoy!
This is a series of photos taken on Constitution Avenue NW in Washington, DC. Maybe you’ll recognize the buildings; some, like the Federal Reserve, are famous enough these days. This post contains a lot of photos (29 of them) and only selected ones are posted large below. Go through the thumbnails to see them all.
