Drive-by-Shooting: Cross Country in under 5 Days!

So I finally get a chance to drive coast-to-coast and wouldn’t you know it — It’s not going to be a photo trip.  I’m pressed for time, relocating to DC, at least partially, since my wife is flying back a week later to get our house sold and help keep the cash flow as positive as possible while I re-establish myself as a photographer in DC.  Anyhow, being pressed for time didn’t mean I wouldn’t stop anywhere or even take some detours to see a couple things along the way — After all, I may not get to it again!  Unfortunately, photography wise, it was pretty lame.  We never had great skies or even good light but, — you’re visiting famous landmarks — of course you still take pictures and you complain endlessly about how much better they could have been at the right time of year, the right time of day, if you’d actually gotten out of the car, etc…  Here are a few pictures that I’m not so ashamed-of to not share with you here but remember:  They could have been so much better under the right conditions!!!  🙂
