Earlier this week Joanna and I got to go on a business trip to Washington D.C.  This was a very special trip for the both of us, and we wanted to show you a timeline photos I shot while we explored this historical city.  I was blown away by the architecture of each place we visited!  Okay so lets get started... the photo above is the first picture I took of the capitol at sunrise as we were walking past.

As you might know the photo above is the United State Supreme Court building.  This was probably one of my favorite buildings in all of D.C.  When you glance at the building from a distance the pillars don't look very big, but when you walk up to the building you get a glance at just how big they are!  Below is a photo taken at an upward glance as I stood in the entrance way of the U.S. Supreme Court.  Just to give you a better idea I am 5'4" and I am barely taller than the base of the pillars!

Here you see another picture of the United States Capitol which was taken not long before the picture below.  We were able to get a last minute tour of the Capitol building, and below is another picture taken at an upward glance of the inside of the Capitol Rotunda.  The tour was very informational, and we were reminded of a lot of history about this building and our country.

Above is a picture I got of the Lincoln memorial.  This memorial was truly breathtaking, and the great words of Abraham Lincoln written on the walls on either side of him reminded us of how wonderful he was and what he did for the United States of America.

The last place we visited in Washington D.C. was the white house.  This was the best view we could get.  Crazy how much security was in this entire city!

When I got home from D.C. I was so inspired by all of the architecture we saw that I just had to put paint on paper.  I painted a watercolor sketch of the Supreme Court and the Capitol.  I am thinking about making a print of this design... what do you think? :)
