I just want to reassure all the ladies who commented, I will not stop being polite and holding the door open. My intent was to try to determine the “WHY” that appears to be offensive. I have my own opinions as to why, but they are not politically correct and people seem to be find my comments both offensive and boorish. I hate to be boorish.
Last night I decided I head out and do some night photography along the Jefferson Memorial. I have not really used my Canon 10-22mm lens in ages and was itching to see what I could create. But of course, I did not have the lock-plate assembly on my tripod (I should have checked it prior to leaving the house), so all of these photos are handheld. I had to turn the ISO up to 1600 and in some cases 3200. Next time out I will have the correct equipment. Let me know how you like the photos.
