The Iconic White House and Washington Monument


Is there anyone who visits Washington DC and who does not go see the White House? I knew I couldn't miss it, I even sent a notice to Obama that I was coming. Unfortunately, he had to meet with Hillary that day, the only excuse I would accept of course, lol. Seriously though, you can send a request through your local rep to get a tour of the White House, our timing was just off as the days we were in DC were not in the schedule.

We managed to get permission to tour the Pentagon and Capitol Buildings, post for another day. As for the Washington Monument, one just couldn't avoid it. It is visible for miles around based on where you are around the city, I just had to try to get as many shots as I could of it, below are some of them.
