People Watching at the Lincoln Memorial

Good afternoon, everyone. I have just a few more posts from the United States until I take off for Japan in just over a week. Last weekend I visited some friends in Washington, D.C., and decided to try out my new GoPro3 camera at some of the famous tourist sites. Here is an accelerated view of the crowds at the Lincoln Memorial. Enjoy!


One Minute at the Jefferson Memorial

Good evening everyone! I have finally completed my YouTube profile and look forward to sharing my GoPro videos and videos from my Sony HX20V whenever I get the opportunity; preferably in far off and interesting places while I live in Asia for the next year. My first video is a GoPro high speed clip that I recorded at the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C., yesterday while sitting on the steps. Six minutes of video footage have been compressed into one minute, so see what it is like to sit on the steps at the Jefferson Memorial. Full HD is available.

Greetings from Washington, D.C.

Greetings from our nation’s capital! As you can see from my most recent postings, I am making the rounds on the East Coast before I leave for Japan in two weeks. Visiting friends, rekindling business contacts, and enjoying good fare and company have been at the top of my list as I have been to New York, Philadelphia, and Washington over the past three weeks. Here is how the Capitol Rotunda Dome looked yesterday. I was a tour guide here along with being a Senate intern in 2011.
