The Pope in Washington DC

posted on 24th of september, 2015

No doubt Pope Francis is the center of attention right now. I was fortunate enough to see the pope in Washington DC on 9/23/15 at D Street as well as Constitution Avenue as he made his way around the Ellipse. This is probably the biggest event to happen in Washington DC in a long time and not likely to happen again for many years. Big crowds assembled at the only non ticketed event to see the Pope. After a wait of about an hour or better the Pope finally arrived on D Street next to DAR Constitution Hall with everyone trying to take a photo. I managed to get 4 good photos by standing on small hill on the ground and 2 more later on when the crowd rushed to Constitution Avenue to take more photos. The crowd on Constitution Avenue went wild as the Popemobile passed by. All I could see was sea of cameras...

You did a nice job and warm thanks for sharing those moments. As a teenager, I had a chance to photograph Pope John Paul II on his visit to Oświęcim, Poland, also known as Auschwitz, in 1979 with my first SLR camera Praktica. I have also seen Pope John Paul II in 2002 in Toronto, Canada on his visit to the Catholic World Youth Day.

About me

I like to travel and have been to many places like California, Europe, Maine and Mexico. I live in Washington D.C. and have also taken pictures around my home including the new WWII Memorial. Digital cameras come and go so like everyone here I am always trading up. Just finished shooting the opening of the cuban embassy in washington dc. There were a lot of people there to see this historic event. My education is an AA degree in Photography from Montgomery college in Maryland, though I have found that photography is a continual learning experience.
