I had the very rare opportunity to fly over D.C. to take a series of photos. Attached are a few of my favorites.
Helicopter, no door on my side, Leica S2 120MM lens, gyro stabilizer.
The first image is the Air Force memorial with Crystal City and Reagan airport in the background.
You'll recognize the Pentagon of course, with Arlington Cemetery in the foreground
Last is the Maine avenue marina with the scaffolded Washington Monument - under repair for earthquake damage.
