The Gaylord Gazebo – National Harbor
Here is a photo of the Gazebo that is inside the Gaylord at the National Harbor. It’s an amazing spot to take wedding, engagement, and special event photos. You have the beautiful background that just pops the Gazebo out and allows you to not have a lot of traffic in the picture.
Hope you enjoy. Have a great day!
Gaylord – National Harbor
I went to the National Harbor today because it was so nice. Only 58 degrees. This photo is the Gaylord Hotel and Conference Center. I also wanted to do a recon because I will be attending Katsucon this year and wanted to make sure I re-familiarized myself with the area.
I’ll post a Blog update on my Katsucon Schedule later this week.
So, it’s nothing but ice and fog here in Maryland. We were promised some snow this weekend but you know how weathermen are. They are very unreliable.
I’ve posted a photo I took last year. I took it with a slow shutter speed so I could get a mystical photo and was very happy with the results. Of course, it took quite a few photos before this one came out. Practice makes perfect! =)
Have a great day!
Here’s a Snow photo that was taken during our blizzard last year. It’s surprising to me that we are already at the end of January and we really haven’t had a good snow storm. I guess I should feel blessed because the DC/VA area freak out with the smallest of storms and people seem to forget how to drive when it snows. However, as a Photographer, I really want some nice snow shots for this year.
I hope you enjoy this photo and your weekend!
Kokeshi Doll – Winter
I love to draw vector images and if you know me, you know I love Anime and anything to do with Japan. So! I have decided to start posting a series of Kokeshi Dolls throughout the year. If they get enough love, I may just turn them into stickers or something to sell.
If you don’t know what Kokeshi Dolls are, here is a nice description from Wikipedia:
“Kokeshi (こけし kokeshi?), are Japanese dolls, originally from northern Japan. They are handmade from wood, have a simple trunk and an enlarged head with a few thin, painted lines to define the face. The body has a floral design painted in red, black, and sometimes yellow, and covered with a layer of wax. One characteristic of kokeshi dolls is their lack of arms or legs. The bottom is marked with the signature of the artist.”
Please let me know what you think!
