Map, Schmap!!

Seriously, how crazy is the Web? The other day I was contacted by the Managing Editor of Schmap Guides, an online digital travel guide website, who had come across an image of the Washington Monument I had uploaded to my Flickr photostream earlier this year. It was part of a series of photos I had made one evening during a particularly colorful sunset over the Washington Mall. I hadn’t set out to capture the definitive Washington Monument image, but I did have fun experimenting with various shutter speeds and zooming in & out during longer exposures.

Anyway, she asked if I would be willing to submit the photo for consideration for use in its Washington, DC guide. Long story short, I said “why not?” and the rest is history. See the listing for yourself here.
