Cinematographers call the time of day right before sunset “witching hour.” Everything looks golden and glow-y. I need to remember to shoot more at that time of day.
Mr. Pearl and I decided to roam the grounds of Washington National Cathedral on Friday evening and I took a few photos:
The little white speck? That’s the moon.
It was a spectacular night–warm but not humid, breezy and golden everywhere. Rare indeed in the Wash DC area.
I’m so pleased with the way this turned out. Italian stonecutters worked for years on all these carvings. One of the last to survive was from five generations of stonecutters. What an amazing craft.
I haven’t been to the cathedral in years and forgot how BIG it is. The grounds are lovely too.
Another carving. I have some l’heure bleue shots to show you tomorrow….
