Three Circles in Two(ish) Hours: Logan to DuPont

I was thinking about this photowalk earlier in the week and decided, upon leaving the convention center today at 5pm and seeing the wonderful light on the buildings, to get it on the schedule. Its only about a week away, so sorry for the short notice. Part of the reason for next week is I'm renting a camera next weekend and want to give it some architecture to test it out. I've also not been to either circle too much (ok, yes there is technically three). I figured the time limit would be good to get some creativity going.

So, lets start it off by meeting at Logan Circle at the point of 13th and Vermont as it goes into the circle. We will break up into groups and spend about 30-45 minutes in and around this area.

Then, its a 15-20 minute (if taking no photos) down Rhode Island Ave, to Scott Circle Park then up some other street (seriously Google Maps is not showing a street name) to Dupont Circle.

Figure 35-45 minutes for Dupont Circle and surrounding area, then we can meet at Starbucks on Connecticut (adjacent to the the Circle) to grab a refreshment and chat a bit before calling it a night. I figure its best to end where there's a good metro stop and the metro is stones throw from Starbucks.

The afternoon light was beautiful, so lets make the start time at 3:30. Figure it will be 3:45 until we get started, then 4:30ish start heading to Dupont, be there by 5ish to have a good 45 minutes there and time to walk to Starbucks by 6pm. Sunset is going to be around 6:05pm.

      Or on the web with my phone. Make sure to come to 13 and Vermont. P is no where near the circle. I'm not sure what happened as that's not what I entered.

    Is the DuPont circle metro the closest? I've only been to DuPont once so am not familiar with the area.

    On the outside chance that there are any newbies on the walk who would like some guidance from me (a college digital photo instructor), I will be wearing my (former) traditional "photo shoot attire," red shirt and yellow-brim West Virginia baseball had.

    If my memory is not failing me, 13th and P Street was the original meeting place. Now, it is 13th and Vermont. Not a great distance, buy a bit confusing. If anyone is using a GPS receiver, I believe I have found the nearest (to 13-vermont) street address. 1501 Vermont Avenue. It is on the circle between 13th St and Vermont Ave.

      Hi Ron, the original was 13th and Vermont I haven't changed the meeting place. I'm mainly using google maps so that seemed to be a good spot. Thanks for finding the street address. I'm not that familiar with the area and have been relying on google maps.

    I'll be heading down shortly to scout a few things out, I'll be wearing a red shirt with tan pants in case you need help in locating me. See you all at Logan Circle for 3:30.

    That was "but" a bit confusing.

    Weather looks great for tomorrow! Again we will meet at the corner of 13th and Vermont at Logan Circle. Google maps shows there is a brick sidewalk area there and we can meet on the brick (if the images are current that is, but we will meet at that point/place). A colleague gave me some churches and small neighborhood to check out just off Logan circle so we can head there once we are all together. Once I figure out what I'm wearing, I'll post an update here so you can identify me. FYI...metro rail alerts for the weekend are here:

    Looks like Red, Orange, and Blue are the magic colors this weekend :)
    i.e. will have schedule adjustments.

    Sounds like fun but we already have plans as a family to go to the pumpkin patch...my kiddos would kill me if I backed out. Have fun everyone!
