With the snowfall in DC on Tuesday, I decided to get out and take a few pictures.  My main goal was to get a shot of the National Bank of Washington.  I pass this building everyday on my way to and from work and have always thought that it it would make an interesting subject to photograph.  However, I could not find a composition that I liked the until the last snowfall.  As luck would have it, I did not have my camera on hand to to capture the image.  The building was built in 1889 and served as the headquarters of the National Bank of Washington from 1889 to 1954.  It was designated as a National Historic site in 1965 and also designated as D.C. Historic Landmark.

The Rock in The Potomac River

While out photographing the ice at Scott's Run in January, I found myself starting at the Potomac River and the ripples in the water.  There was a picture to be taken but I could not figure out how to capture it.  After a few minutes, I saw this rock in the water and decided to use it as my subject with the ripples of the Potomac River in the background.
