We’ve been exploring Washington D.C., mostly by bike, ever since we moved here earlier this year. I like to snap photos of the monuments on my iPhone and post them to
Instagram; it’s an amateur endeavor and totally fun. Here are some of my best shots so far.

A memorial to those who died in World War I, photographed Memorial Day weekend. This is not actually a “national” monument; it was put up by the District of Columbia.
