I basically shot from 11am-2pm. It was a beautiful day but incredibly fridgely cold, like 12 degrees. A little tough for me to get the old creative juices flowing when my brain is frozen solid but I tried. Here's a few I like. If interested you can view a gallery of many more images here: Leesburg Gallery. It was worth the effort, many of these images will generate imcome in the future.

I get a lot of requests for architectural detail images for these types of projects. Requests that include details of many cities, whether it's DC, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, or Dulles or Leesburg, VA. But as importantly, images that could be perceived as the architectural style of those cities. I did a project a little while ago providing all the images for a hotel in Portsmouth, NH. All the images selected by the agency were images I shot in an afternoon in Baltimore. But, they were detail shots from aboard the US Constitution of ropes and pulleys and nautical type thingys. In fact the images from that same group went on to furnish all guestrooms and public space for the Marriott Baltimore Harbor. You can see pages of some of those images starting here in this Maryland Gallery.
So don't forget to shoot the details. I love doing it and it is fun. Having groups of architectural detail images is like having money in the bank. Isn't it a wonderful world we live in that you can create images and instantly market them worldwide!
Here are a few of the images from one group I shared with my client for their presentation regarding this project.
I have something like a million of these:

I structure my entire life around not being involved in rush hour traffic. So, it would take an incredible force of nature to have me drive to the corner of Wisconsin and M on a Friday at 5pm. But, as it happens, I was down there on a shoot and afterwards decided to take advantage of the beautiful evening and where I was.
It was a perfect evening and I was able to get lots of great images in a short period of time. You can see more spread out through my Misc DC gallery if interested. The second shot is from the opposite side up Wisconsin. That's how I have produced so many of the images in my Washington DC Stock collection, just being there. Wherever You Are Be There.
Can you imagine how different the world would be if everyone pursued their passion in life?
Would your experiences from day to day change?
Would the cashier at your local grocery store give you attitude? What about your auto repairman, would he be running an honest company based on integrity and morals? And what about your accountant, are they doing it for the money or because they love working with numbers?When you run across people who really love what they do it’s extremely evident. They have enthusiasm and they’re full of life, they offer valuable opinions and help steer you down the right path. There’s a whole lot to be learned from people who pursue their passion in life.

I just this morning was cleaning off my desktop of misc folders and came accross a folder of images I had forgotten about. A few weeks back I woke up to a beautiful foggy morning. Decided to take a walk and see what I could see. I ended up with a whole bunch of wonderful images. Many that I am really happy with and would have otherwise never seen had I not decided to go for a walk. I'll include one here, this is the first image I took, basically the view from my office window. The other image is the post card I sent out that day.
Another example of how I fall behind in getting images out. I just this week got around to preparing and uploading to my stock site a group of images I shot one weekend in late October. I made a mini gallery of this new group to share with a client regarding a potential new project. All of these shot over a long weekend at Deep Creek Lake before 9am.
The gallery includes some images from the previous post.
Click past those, 170 or so images in this gallery.
