DC ABC Photo Scavenger Hunt

Recently I was at a store and was inspired by a poster I saw. Someone had gone around and found the alphabet in the city. It was not just letters from signs but the letters were found in street windows, architecture and more. So this gave me the idea for a new and different photography exercise.
We will meet at the Top of the Smithsonian Metro stop in the National Mall. We will from there split into groups and venture to different areas of DC...ideas Geroge Town, Monuments, Chinatown, Adams Morgan, and more. After 3 hrs those who care to can meet back at the National Mall and we can share the photos we took, discuss, and if anyone wants maybe get a bite to eat together.
** If there is rain we will reschedule for August 17th at the same time**

    Didn't take the metro. Fun excursion. Didn't see any meet up people. Arrived about ten minutes late. The event was a great idea and a lot of fun to shoot. Makes you look at your surroundings differently.

    Thank you to everyone who braved the grey skies. We had a few sprinkles but nothing too much. I am loving the pictures that I'm seeing. I hope everyone had a great time and look forward to seeing everyone again soon.

    I love a good scavenger hunt. My two sons (19 & 25) _might_ be able to go but that's not confirmed.
