I got out today to shoot the Cherry Blossoms, but was a day late. We had winds and heavy rains over night and at least 50 percent were gone. Here is the Washington Monument as it is being repaired from earthquake damage. .

iPhone Friday: Choices

It’s been a crazy week for me, and my family. Between returning to northern Virginia on Sunday after several days in Alabama tending to my parents, catching up on work at the office (which is never caught up), and dealing with other personal matters, photography has taken a back seat other than a few iPhone shots. While browsing the few I had taken this week, I was trying to come up with a couple that I could link together in some sort of a theme. Then it occurred to me just how many choices we have to make each day … Some trivial and require little conscious thought, and the occasional one that can be life altering. It seems the latter category has been prominent for me and my family this week. My theme conceived, I found a couple of images from the week that capture some of the more simple (and more enjoyable) choices.

Food trucks line up in front of my DC office each day around lunch. I don’t often partake, but I have to make a conscious choice to pass them up for something else.

While I am not a big beer fan, it’s always interesting to see the many different beer taps used, particularly in different geographical areas. I captured these in a sports bar & grill in Alabama. Note the “Truck Stop Honey” and “Sweet Water 420”. Choices, choices……
