Roosevelt Island

A little island sanctuary on the Potomac River called Roosevelt Island. Other than a statue of Teddy Roosevelt and some columns and pools at the highest point of the island it's pretty much just a swamp with trails and boardwalks. You can hear the city life but most of the time you can't see it.

Taking a break

Taking a break, originally uploaded by Rob Weiher.

I've never gone out of my way to include people in my photos but ended up with some while wandering around DC.

Please sit on me

The single not very comfortable looking chair sitting in the back corner of an empty room in the National Cathedral just seemed appropriate.

While wandering around the observation deck of the National Cathedral I came across this person sitting in the alcove reading and listening to music.

I'm finding that architecture shots make for good black and least for me.

Shadows outside Lincoln Monument

I'm always on the lookout for shadows and enjoy looking away from where everyone else is focused on. Shadows (some duplicates of the same person) standing outside the Lincoln Monument.

National Cathedral

Sometimes it's important to look up while out taking photos. Sunlight hitting the many stain glass windows made all kinds of nice colors on the ceiling and columns.

Trumpet player

Back from my week long trip to Washington DC. It was a mix of business and fun.

While walking into a metro station I spotted this street musician leaning up against a wall taking a break.

Minneapolis Loring Park Dandelion Fountain

Going through my archives and processing photos that I didn't know what to do with then but have ideas now. This is a reflection of a dandelion shaped fountain near downtown Minneapolis. At night it was lit but not spraying water.
