I Heart Face No. 7

My daughter was wondering - What's an outtake?

Well, honey, it's when a photograph doesn't turn out as the photographer hoped for or wanted when they were trying to get the picture they envisioned. Sometimes they end up with something else; and sometimes that something else is pretty funny. Here, I wanted to document my beautiful young family, on our once in a generation vacation to Washington DC, with the capital in the background lit by the sun, gleaming in the distance with the green lawn in front. What I captured instead was the real life memories - squinty eyes and non-cooperation from some in the family as they made the several mile long walk back to the car after a long day of touring. We would only pass this way once, the shot was now or skip it, and a photojournalistic moment was captured.

(Note: After finding out I could have more then one photo, I added the Washington DC photograph.) The I Heart Faces challenge is featuring photos of hilarious outtakes this week.

Washington D.C. - Outdoor Wednesday

USA Capital and Fountain 2009It has been I while since I posted a photo for Outdoor Wednesday.

While I am waiting for great weather in Wisconsin again, I thought I would post this different view of the US Capitol in Washington DC. It is from a trip to Washington in September, 2009. There are so many different views of the capitol if you have the time to walk around it. I hadn't known this fountain and landscaped area was there before I stumbled across it.

This is the 20th time I have participated in Outdoor Wednesday!
