Christmas Morning Drive – Washington D.C.

45 Blurry and not to terribly blurry photos of Washington D.C. at dawn on Christmas MorningDIGITAL CAMERA I don’t normally post blurry pictures, but with this post I am doing just that.  We arrived in Washington D.C. just as dawn was approaching.  Since it was Christmas morning there were almost no others cars on the streets.

    Lovely set of photso, Iris, even the blurry ones – they have a special charm of their own. You wouldn’t see the city like that too often, I’d imagine. All the best for 2015. ❤

    1. Thanks for understanding my reason for posting blurry photos, Christine. I also felt they had a special charm and just really wanted to share them. Thank you 🙂

    I am surprised the streets are so empty even if it was Christmas. Actually, it looks Christmas morning is the time to sight see without getting crowded out. Nice Photos. Nice Share.

    1. Thanks and yes……If you want to actually be able to drive around town and find places to park, Christmas is the perfect time.

        I suspect that is why they have satellite parking and trains and such—which is why I avoid such places. Admittedly, I am a country bumpkin. 🙂 The city does sport some beautiful Architecture. That fact can not be denied.

    It looks like a lovely city; what a shame it’s the crime capital of America !

    1. Don’t believe everything you hear from reporters…..unless of course you’re talking about our politicians. (Oops, did that just come out of my mouth?) Damn…now the NSA and CIA are going to be following my blog, incognito of course.

        I think the stat is per capita, or somethin, Iris …

      2. I took a class in college on how to lie with statistics. It turned out to be one of my favorite classes. And now it’s been so long ago that I couldn’t give you a single example. Not that it would be relevant today anyway. Oh well.

        I believe I get your drift … 🙂

  4. Thanks for the whirlwind tour around Washington! Happy New Year! 🙂

    1. Your welcome and Happy New Year to you too 🙂

    Iris, these would make a charming mini-film with some music. Enjoyed them. For me, they really give that cold, wet (damp), wintery, Christmas feel–partly because one’s own vision gets blurry like that from the cold sometimes, doesn’t it?

    1. Thank you so much for your comment. It’s so good to find out that other bloggers can read my mind. Happy 2015.
