Do you ever have a great moment that you just want to repeat? Something so simple, yet it just fills you up with nothing but contentment?
That would be this moment in DC.
Having a photographing family, you just had to figure one or more people would want to take night photos down at the National Mall. Zach and Kass took turns with the tripod to capture some great photos. But after spending a few moments photographing Abe, I sat on the top steps of the Lincoln Memorial, behind a column so I wouldn’t get tripped over in the ‘darkness’, with Jordy-girl sitting next to me, sat my camera on my knees, held as still as possible, and took this shot. Well, I took a few more, but this is one of them that turned out pretty darn well.
And if you look to the right you’ll see three green dots. I call them orbs. Having a husband who has enjoyed watching Ghost Hunters, we were calling them the spirits of DC past. Perhaps Washington, Lincoln and Jefferson were hanging around. ;)
There wasn’t much else that we did but sit on the steps and talk about history and all sorts of stuff.
I loved it.
If I could go back and do it again just to sit on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, I’d do it. I don’t need a phone, I don’t need a book. Just sit and soak it in.
Some people enjoy relaxing on the beach.
I liked relaxing here.
I liked soaking it in and truly appreciating where we were at.
What a moment.
I’m ready to do it again.
