After spending many hours on planes and in airports, I'm too tired to write much tonight. So I'll just post a few pics from DC and call it good for now. I hope to write more about the trip once I regain consciousness.
The White House:
I actually took this pic from quite a distance using my 12x zoom lens. You can't just walk up to the White House anymore, and I was too lazy to walk all the way to the closest point (which still wasn't that close).
One side of the National World War II Memorial:
Washington Monument and reflecting pool, taken from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial:
Library of Congress (a/k/a Mecca for librarians):
And if you're really into pictures, you can see the rest of the pics from my trip on Flickr at http://flickr.com/photos/crumj/sets/72157600455373666/
