DC 11/ Good artists copy; great artists steal. This quote kept coming to mind as I captured this photo of the National Museum of African American History and Culture with the Washington Monument in the background. The hotel we were staying at had a travel magazine with a similar shot on the cover, and I decided I had to try and recreate it on my own. I figured out the best location to photograph it from, then decided the best time to photograph it would be in the morning while the sun was in the right position. I’m happy with the result.

We would have loved to have visited the museum itself, but we couldn’t get tickets. Every day at 6:30am they offer a certain number of tickets on their website. We woke up early to pick up a couple of them, but they were gone within minutes. Next time…
