Washington DC or Paris / by Sarah

This past weekend I traveled to Washington DC. Friday afternoon I had a photo shoot and extended my trip into the weekend. I got to visit my brother, sister-in-law, and darling nephew (who is only 2 days younger than my baby). Then Saturday transitioned into girls weekend where we ate, drank, got massages and enjoyed the city...all without basically leaving the W Hotel. Saturday morning I got to stroll around camera in hand and I was amazed how certain aspects of DC reminded me of Paris. I did a little research and found out DC was designed by the French architect, Pierre Charles L'Enfant! Oui! The Washington Mall or Champs-Élysées?

And here are some more of those "Neo-Classical" buildings more associated with DC

Although I spy a Medici type lantern on this building! Such a mix of styles in DC. _ P.S. What do you think of the blog's mini face lift? A bigger redesign to come, but this is a start.
