Dog walking along the National Mall in Washington DC

A shameless 'selfie' at the Lincoln MemorialI was on dog-walking duty on Saturday morning so decided to make the most of the opportunity. I grabbed my camera and sunglasses, put Prince Reginald the Shih Tsu (not shown to maintain his anonymity) on his lead, and headed out of the Capital Yacht Club marina. We set off on a brisk morning walk along Washington DC’s well-known National Mall.

I love being outdoors in the morning. The morning light is great for taking photographs, the fresh crisp air awakens your senses, clears your mind and guarantees a good mood. I mean, it’s not every day that you get to stroll past world famous memorials!

Here are a few of my favourite photos taken on my morning-photomontage walk along Washington DC’s well-known landmarks:

We only have two days left in Washington DC so I plan to squeeze in a run along the Constitution Gardens tomorrow. I will wave goodbye to the grand memorial sites and take in the spectacular views for one last time.
