Annual Pilgrimage to Washington DC

Gloomy Washington Memorial from the Constitution Gardens Pond

I'm a government-funded graduate student and as such, I make a yearly pilgrimage to Washington DC for somesuch research conference or another. I only had a few hours to spare before meeting up with rainmelon and eating the best meal of my life at Zaytinya, but I was able to capture a few shots of the gloominess that is DC in the rain.

Gorgeous photos! I definitely need to visit DC more often. Despite the fact that one of my best friends lives there and I only live 3 1/2 hours away, this past August was my first trip there in about 3 years!!

Nice shots! I especially like the one of the White House lit up against the grey night. Hope you had a good time in Washington. Long live the grad student high life! :)

All the best,
This Good Life

You were in my neck of the woods! Isn't Zaytinya great? I went there a while back for DC Restaurant Week and the food was amazing. I keep meaning to go back soon. So glad you had a great time in DC. I love it here. DC is a great city.

I love visiting cities in the rain. Unless I've forgotten my umbrella!
