Washington D.C.

It has been so long since my last photography post. It was difficult for me to decide which photos to post on here since there were hundreds, so I hope you enjoy the ones I’ve selected 🙂

Washington D.C. is the first City I ever explored on my own, and I feel like I’ve accomplished something after doing so. When I travel somewhere, I usually have someone with me, so it was a bit terrifying to do something like this by myself. It took time for me to push myself out of the hotel– I was alone, I eventually summoned up the courage to step out of the hotel and hop onto a bus that drove me to the Metro Station. On the way, I thought and rethought of all the possibilities I could fail to get onto the metro, or somehow get lost, or end up in a horrible situation. Of course, thinking negatively wasn’t going to get me anywhere, so I took long, deep breaths and told myself to think positive thoughts and to act like I knew where I was going, and to not be afraid of asking for help. So, after finding a place to have breakfast and figuring out which metro to take (which that I will add wasn’t hard to find because there was only one train to take out), I found a seat and hoped that I wouldn’t miss my stop.

Once I got to my stop: Metro Capitol South — I walked to my first destination, The Thomas Jefferson Building, also known as, The Library of Congress. It was beautiful and grand like most of the buildings in D.C.

For three days I made a huge loop walking from the U.S. Capitol to the White House to the Lincoln Memorial to the Thomas Jefferson Memorial. Along the way, I visited all the touristy spots and Museums spending hours on end inside. I’ve learned so much from this trip that I hope one day I can return to visit some of the other museums and locations I’ve missed, like, D.C.’s Chinatown. My favorite Museums were The Holocaust (I picked an ID that lived btw,) the Museum of Natural History, and the massive Gallery of Art Museum. My favorite building in D.C. was the Eisenhower Building.

What surprised me the most about this trip was how tiny the White House was, I was expecting it to be huge. My first reaction to seeing the White House was with utter confusion I had to look at my map to see if I was in the right place. I was all, “That’s it? The movies make it look like the Capitol.”

Here are the rest of my D.C. photos because I can’t really think of anything else to say about my trip at the moment. ENJOY!
