Washington D.C.































































































I had some free time today while in Washington D.C., so I stopped by the Corcoran Gallery of Art to see Annie Leibovitz & Ansel Adams exhibits. They were both amazing, particularly the Leibovitz exhibit. With such great weather I decided to take a walk around some of the tourist sights, many of which I hadn't visited since a 6th grade field trip. These are just a few of the images that I made today of the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, and my cousin's name on the Vietnam wall.
