My day in Washington

I am in BWI this weekend as my sister is having surgery to remove the bags from under her eyes. I promised her if she had the surgery I would come up and take her.  She had the surgery and I say hello to being in Baltimore for this weekend.  I am lucky enough to combine this trip with spending yesterday with my friend Jack who is Chief Photographer for Pro Pilot Magazine as well as a White House Press Photographer. I have a pretty decent Lumix camera which I haven’t used in a year. I call it my “big girl” camera that I was able to spend all of yesterday using.  The one thing that is the coolest about working with a professional photographer is you always learn to use more gadgets on your camera then you would if you were to figure it out for yourself. The other thing is framing – I am becoming much better in having an awareness of what is around me that will only enhance the picture. Even if it means hanging out for a minute or two while the “other piece” of what will be my complete pictures comes into view. I had an amazing day with Jack – he took me all over the Capitol, White House and Pentagon.  Here are some of my favorite pictures from yesterday. Thank you Jack.
