So you are probably thinking that it would be loads of fun to venture out in the snow to take some amazing pictures of our favorite city.  But before you make the long and arduous trip you should probably read this – the monuments and memorials are all closed!  Sergeant David Schlosser of the U.S. Park Police announced as of noon today that due to hazardous conditions the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, and Jefferson Memorial are all closed to visitors until further notice. Perhaps now you have an even better reason to rethink your excursion and head to one of these open locations instead.

Samantha can often be found daydreaming by the Rothkos of the East Gallery, sketching store facades along 14th, and snapping photos with her vintage polaroid at 9:30 club concerts. Since moving to DC in 2007 to get an MFA in Interior Design, her eyes can’t seem to be peeled away from the beautiful things in this city.
