Day 11 - Annie Leibovitz exhibit

The Annie Leibovitz was at the Corcoran Gallery for the past few months and January 11 I went. She photographed both her life and clients, famous and not so famous. This exhibit included pictures taken from 1990 to 2005. The exhibit included many of her family pictures. I have admired her work, but had not seen many of these photographs in publications. I have seen Ansel Adams photographs since I was a kid, but wandered through the exhibit of his photos too. Most were very familiar, as I have had calendars of his work hanging over my desk at work for over 20 years.

The columns of the building across 17-th Street from the Old Executive Office Building made a nice frame for the rain and fog shrouded Washington Monument. Both these pictures were taken with my Kodak camera.

I have a friend that used to work at the Corcoran. Interesting building.
