My favorite thing about gray days...
Over the last month, DC has seen its fair share of gray days. And although too many gray days can bring my spirits down, there are things about them that do raise my spirits. A few years ago, when I started to learn more about photography, I learned that some of the best natural color saturation comes on an overcast day. I had never really thought about it before, but on beautiful sunny days, without some of the right tools, colors can be extremely washed out by the sunlight (which is why dawn and dusk are the best times to take pictures - the light isn't so direct). So on all these gray days, I've been looking at what the city has to offer and took these photos to thoroughly enjoy the color saturation.
With the help of my smartphone, I've been taking these pictures and there are many more, but these are some of my favorites. They are bright spots on gray days and for as much as I don't love so many gray days, I look forward to being able to take more of these every opportunity that I get.
