Weekend Photo shoot 8/21 - 8/22

It was good to get out again, I have been very busy since my trip to the Virgin Islands.  I went in search of some interesting architecture images to add to our newly decorated living room.  Since we went for an Art Deco/40's supper club look, I wanted to find some buildings or architecture features that could be printed in black and white.

My first find were these lions at the base of the Justice Department outer doors.  Very cool 30's period relief on the metal, perfect for what I had in mind.

Knock if you dare
Washington, DC has many such features, some more visible than others.  My next stop was the Old Post Office Pavilion.  Unfortunately I was there too early in the morning before the August heat but I managed to get this great exterior shot

Although I am not sure that I will use these for my living room, they are good enough to be on my website Brian Shannon Photography.  I have some additional shots from the National Cathedral that I need to work on in Lightroom a bit more but I will post some of these soon.  In addition, the National Cathedral is now high on my list of places to revisit as I found some fantastic things to photograph.

Update, here is one that I am featuring on Brian Shannon Photography

Until next time, keep shooting. button Promote Your Blog Follow on Buzz Blog ping service Dreamhost Promotional Codes
