DC on the 4th of July [life well lived]

by amandamaephotos

I like DC. I like the Fourth of July and fireworks. I do not however, like those three combined. Like New Years in New York City, DC is filled to the brim with enthusiastic, patriotic Americans, seeking the exciting rush of being in their Nations Capital to celebrate its birthday. Please do not take me for being unpatriotic, its just the crowds, the pushing and squeezing of the crowds, the mad rush of the crowd as it stampedes towards the even more crowded metro, you know… But, getting a chance to take some pictures is well worth all the uncomfortable butt-rubbing with strangers I endured. 🙂
