The first winter I lived in the DC area, my friend, Milli, and I took some pictures of one of the most beautiful sunsets I'd ever seen. My laptop at the time crashed, and while I managed to recover some of my files, regarding the sunset pictures, only the empty "DC Sunset" folder could be found. Empty. That's even worse than not having the folder at all. What a tease.
Well, I decided this weekend that I would brave the cold in hopes of a comparable sunset. So I layered up and headed out. I decided to stop by the Hirshhorn to kill a little time, warm up and enjoy the art, of course. Oh, and by the way, the top level couches in the room that overlooks the National Mall (not a shopping mall, as I learned when I first moved here) . . . quite possibly the comfiest couches ever. Just so you know.
The sunset ended up being far less spectacular than the original one I remembered. On the flip side though, I think this was the first time I've seen the Tidal Basin paritally frozen over, and it was gorgeous the way it reflected the setting sun.
I have to be honest that my Project 365 has been dominating my photographic efforts and energy. Some days I just want to be lazy and almost forget, but I'm keeping strong. And it was great to have a selection of pictures to choose from for Saturday's picture and even share as a blog post. I'll try to keep fighting my lazy tendencies and desire to hibernate.
Is it spring yet?!
