this post is for a change not motorcycle or car trouble related. I know I know it's a rare event. This time it's about the third standard topic of mine.

Travelling and taking pictures.

So currently I'm in Washington DC and it does not really agree with me and being spoiled by californian weather. It's basically cold (25F/-4F) and slightly snowing.

So I've been walking around a bit and looking at DC in the dark. 5 Minutes into the walk the GPS was out of battery and I was randomly discovering things and searching for a hotel. 4 something hours later I caved in and payed 100$ for a night at the 'comfort inn' after getting quotes for 150$, 200$ and 400$.

Well I ended up with some pictures, but they were all taking at ISO 3200, so they are rather noisy and the camera shows it's age a bit. Compared to it's more modern brothers. One day I gonna have a D700 and a small portable camera.

I also tried to avoid to create the standard pictures of these building, which you can see on every postcard.
