A Visit To The Hirshhorn Art Museum, June 29, 2013

I've covered this museum before, but luckily, they frequently change their exhibits so there is always something new to see.  
Andy Warhol original.

Andy Warhol original, but this one is an original OF Andy Warhol, BY someone else!

An old antiquated medium, rarely found in this day and age.  This roll of film was on the floor of an exhibit representing some crazy thing (Some art is very strange!), but I thought it looked really cool all by itself......

This dog was about 6 feet tall laying down!  Would have been  10 or more standing.  Luckily he wasn't real!!!!!
My favorite shot of the day.  There are 80 of these poster prints, each a different combination of three colors.  I really liked the way the light from the flash only went so far and the rest faded into darkness, in stark contrast to the bright colors of the canvases.
This room is all sayings, all over....

One last parting shot.  Marble and Metal.

'Golden Hour' on the National Mall

The US Capitol with the sun rising behind.
Someone suggested I get some pics in the 'Golden Hour' (aka 'Magic Hour) with some early morning or late evening sun.  I took these in my most photographed area, The National Mall, in Washington D.C.  

I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out, especially since they were all taken with a Blackberry!!!!!!

Morning sun rays through a construction zone on the National Mall. 
Air & Space Museum.
Any time I can get a nice shot of the sun, I'll do it...
Statue outside the Hirschorn Museum of Modern Art.
Another sculpture outside the Art Museum.
This Carousel is directly in front of the Smithsonian Castle.
Smithsonian Castle and the Washington Monument.  I had lost a good portion of the light behind the clouds by now.  I'll definitely be back to capture this with better light...
One last shot toward the Capitol.  Actually this was the first photo I took and the  photo at the beginning of the blog was the last.   I just wanted to mix it up a bit.....
