For those who missed the Cherry Blossom meet...we are planning an Old Towne Alexandria, VA meet soon...late April or early May before it gets too warm.

Three wonderful photo ops: panoramic view of Old Towne from the steps of the George Washington Masonic Temple (you can see the entire city from there); visit to the Alexandria National Veterans Cemetery (about 1/2 mile away); and then a trip down King Street to the waterfront and the Marina...here we can photograph the waterfront activity plus the old building architecture dating back to the 1700s; and then top it all off with a nice seafood lunch at one of the many great restaurants at the Marina area :)

If you are interested then post your best Saturday date and time. To hit all three locations will take about 4-5 hours...if time is an issue then we could take the first two photo ops and save the Waterfront-Marina for a seperate meet.

Post here and let us know what you all think :)

Here is a view of Old Towne Alexandria and here is a view of the Alexandria National Cemetery:

Jim, Thanks for posting this, I was just going to ask for help finding old cemeteries in NoVA and DC area. If others know of more like this, please post or pm. TIA

I'll be up for this, it just depends when. My son is in little league until June, so it just depends on the timing.

I love Old Towne Alexandria. The Mount Vernon bike trail, from DC to mt Vernon is a favorite of mine. I will be in Maryland this week and may have some time for some shooting this Friday or Saturday.

Hi Jim:

I was great meeting you an your wife at the temple a few weeks ago. i would love to join in on this shoot. I just ordered some "stuff" and should have my new lenses by then. I took your advice and got the Canon 70 - 200f/4L... I just can't wait to use it.

Hope to meet up soon.

These are great. I got one at the same cemetery early this spring. I wanted to go back and take a couple more of this angel, but unfortunately now the leaves are blocking the view.
