Exploring my Hometown with a Camera

What this is All About

I grew up in Montgomery County, so to say I'm exploring my "hometown" might strike some people as a little odd. But, after reporting in three cities across the country, I returned home fully aware of how precious little I knew about DC. An embarrasing amount, in fact. Now that said, I've seen the big stuff. If you grow up here, you cannot escape the obligatory White House Christmas tours and a run by the monuments for the guests in town, but the parts of this city that make it great are foreign to me.

So, I decided to take my love of photography and use this project as an excuse to explore DC and its surrounding area. I went to a few suggested spots, some I wanted to see again, and others I've only heard are worth the trip. Here are the highlights of my day trips in the last few weeks here at home.
