When we landed in Washington DC, the first step outside the airport, made me want to scurry back in, it was was well over 100 degrees. I found it quite hard to breath and even the walk to the rented car, which only a few feet away, was enough for me. The weather was so humid, that it almost felt like swimming, we in the UK rarely have to deal with humidity.
Travelling through the city to our hotel in our lovely air conditioned car, I began to feel better and the camera sprung into action. One thing I did notice on this holiday was the lack of cameras, most people were using their mobile phones or even their iPads. Nothing wrong with that, but it was a bit more difficult to take street photos than at home, only because people were interested in what you were taking a photo of and would ask……no one at home asks, it was quite nice. Many photos were taken through the car window and also I really wanted to try to get as many different occupations as I could.
My first capture was this wonderful traffic controller, I have no idea if he is a policeman or not, but I just thought what a great way to beat the traffic.
