I received an email from a member of the US Army who was visiting Washington, DC for the first time. He was a photography buff and wanted someone to photograph him as he/we walked around the National Mall. We started out at the White House and then walked around to the Washington Monument, The US Capitol, and then by the Tidal Basin where we could see the Jefferson Memorial. Then we crossed over to the WW II Memorial, and walked down alongside the reflecting pool to the Lincoln Memorial, and lastly over to the Vietnam Memorial.
It took about two hours, and I gave him my best shot at being a tour guide in addition to being a photographer. He was a pleasure to spend the morning with, and I was honored to be able to spend a few hours with him on his first visit to our nation's Capitol.
