Now, as for THIS image....I captured it :-)....(see yesterday's post to understand the gist of this "joke.") !!
This is Washington DC in Late March, 2009...so the image, here, is a bit of an an "oldy." We are standing at the convergence of Constitution and Pennsylvania avenues (if I am not mistaken) and we are looking in a westerly direction. To our left would be the eastern end of Capital Mall and behind us (not too far) is the United States Capital Building, where "lawmakers" (and I use that term loosely) continue to bicker and fight over rediculous personal agendas and petty animosities.....but I digress!
This image has been lightly processed in Snapseed (NIK Software) to bring out some detail and level the tones (not withstanding the glary sky).
I always rather liked this view, though. I hope you will too ;-)
Finally, I may need to leave this image "up" for a day or two, as I am organizing some things. Also, the chances of me taking a 2-3 week hiatus may also occur soon...but I will ALWAYS be checking in to your blogs ;-) I will let you know :-)

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
