Memorial Day is the unofficial start of the summer season, the day we head to the beach, bring out the barbecue grills and have fun with family. However, this year in Northern Virginia, Washington D.C. and Maryland we’ll be experiencing rainstorms and attempting to stay dry.
Yesterday morning was off to a great start in Washington D.C....there was no rain! I arrived to the National Archives Museum to photograph the outside of the museum while I awaited the arrival of my client and their friends and family for a promotion ceremony.
Whipple Field is the location for this beautiful Army promotion ceremony on Fort Myer overlooking the monuments in Washington D.C. Lieutenant Colonel Clark and his family welcomed their friends and family at the field prior to the start of the ceremony.
Today, was a beautiful May morning in the nation's Capital. We received a break from the rain and was able to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. Yes, for the last week and a half, Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. has been in the middle of continuous rainfall. Thankfully today, we received a reprieve and was able to enjoy a morning full of bright sun and mild temperatures. Major Young and his family arrived at the National Archives Museum in Washington D.C. and there was excitement all around.
Do you count yourself in the numbers of people, more specifically women, who hate to take pictures and shy away from the camera? If you’re not one, I’m sure you may know someone who does feel this way. It's heartbreaking to see beautiful and remarkable women overlooking and disregarding themselves and refusing to be photographed. As women, why do we evade the camera? Why do we neglect future generations from seeing pictures of us by refusing to celebrate our beauty today, so our grandchildren and their children may be able to reflect on us in a wall portrait?
