Day 108: in the mist
Image by -Snugg-
I went into town with the gang today, and we visited one of our favorite places in the city: the mist fountain. We had a lot of fun playing tag, hopping from rock to rock in the mist. Then, we decided to start playing our favorite game, hide-and-seek.
Because of the mist, it was surprisingly hard to find someone who was sitting right next to you. But it wasn’t hard enough. I kept getting found! So, I hopped right to the middle rock, which was small and almost completely covered in mist.
It was a good hiding place, that’s for sure! Nobody found me for half an hour… in which time I got completely soaked by the misters. Eventually, I got so wet that I had to come out of hiding before they found me. It was hard to find my way out, and when I did I was literally dripping!
I just hope I don’t have to go back in the dryer…

Oh Duck! National World War II Memorial – Washington, D.C.
Image by Sam Antonio Photography
I’ve been all over the place this past year, from Bangkok, Thailand to Chicago, Illinois to Dalat, Vietnam to Penang, Malaysia to The Crazy Horse Memorial in South Dakota to San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico to Washington, D.C.
So it is with my photostream too.
I still have tons of photos to process from my South East Asia trip from earlier this year and now that I have returned from Mexico, more photos have been added to my ever dwindling hard drive space. Santa I need more hard drives for Christmas (G-Technology drives would be great)!
I have been adding photos from my recent journey into Mexico, but I am going to interrupt that with some photos from my Washington, D.C. trip I took a couple of months ago.
I had a tough time photographing the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. due to the weather. The day I was photographing the memorial it was overcast and raining. I had just removed my gear from my Think Tank Shape Shifter backpack and set up my Canon 5D Mark II on my tripod when it began to rain. I ran and “ducked” under one of the memorial’s arches to wait out the downpour. When the rain let up momentarily I ran out to this spot before the crowds could assemble around the pool.
There are so many memorials in Washington, D.C. that I love to combine them into one shot if possible. I did that here with the World War II Memorial, the Washington Monument and a duck all in one frame!
The duck is a great symbol of Washington, D.C. since many politicians love to “duck” the important issues facing America in favor of spending other people’s money!
