Washington, D.C. Part I – The Smithsonian Information Center

Washington, D.C. Photoset

My brother currently lives and works in D.C. (well, technically he lives in Arlington, VA), which is oh-so-convenient for me when I’m flying home to visit my family. For Christmas this year, I flew into D.C. on the 20th, and then my brother and I spent the day wandering around The Mall and various monuments/memorials until it was time to go pick up my older sister at the Baltimore airport.

I took a roll of black and white film along with a bunch of digital shots, but that will have to wait until I’m back home and can develop it. In the meantime, I’ll be posting the shots from my Rebel XT.

We got off the metro at the Smithsonian stop, and then began our wandering at the Smithsonian Information Center (otherwise known as “The Castle”), which is right next to the Sackler Art Gallery.
