Photos from my visit to the Smithsonian National Zoological Park in Washington, DC.

National Gallery of Art

In 2010 I visited the National Gallery of Art while on vacation in Washington, DC and took advantage of the opportunity to take some travel photographs. The museum houses rooms (and rooms) of art, two garden courts, and a beautiful rotunda. I spent hours merrily walking through the museum, snapping photos along the way but left about half way through the second floor in search of lunch.

Chinatown & Jing Fong Dim Sum

On a street photography tour of the area I discovered that there are several interesting side streets off of Canal populated with a wealth of signs and stores that will make you forget you’re in New York. After a long day of taking photos (it was more like 2 hours but you get the point) I grabbed lunch at Jing Fong Restaurant and then ventured into Little Italy for the Feast of San Gennaro (sorry no pictures).

Lincoln Center at Night

I’ve visited Lincoln Center on school trips in junior high school and later walked by a countless number of times while attending college a few blocks away. I’ve seen the concert halls by day but didn’t full appreciate their beauty until I viewed them at night. The buildings are bathed in a warm yellow glow that welcomes and encourages you to climb the short steps and see familiar surroundings from a new perspective.
