Photo Opp at the Newseum

The Smithsonian's National Gallery of Art as seen from the Newseum Terrace.One of the top vantage points for taking travel photos of America’s most important street is at the Newseum‘s Hank Greenspun Terrace on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C.  The National Gallery of Art, with the Smithsonian campus as its backdrop, rests directly in front, while the Federal Trade Commission sits to one side.

Even more impressive is the view of Washington, DC on the opposite side. Where else can you get that iconic shot of the United States Capitol building perched on your shoulder?

    Great photo-shoot with a good DSLR. In 2009 it was probably an excellent DSLR. I love the last pic though. Great shot with great background. What a cool compsition.

      Thanks, Laura! I’ve upgraded my DSLR a couple of times so it is surprising what could be captured with my first digital SLR.
