Washington, DC Visit

I spent two days in Washington taking photographs for a textbook on journalism. I started to with the Pentagon and a DoD press briefing with the Secretary of Defense and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld

Secretary Rumsfeld can look awfully mean from the podium.

Window Washers

I also visited the Gannett/USA Today buildings. While outside the building I took some shots of the grounds and the window washers dangling high above the ground with their buckets.

Arlington National Cemetery

A visit to Arlington National Cemetery is a sobering experience. I photographed a funeral service there yesterday.

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

While visiting Arlington National Cemetery, I roamed around the grounds and stopped by the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
