Happy New Year...Now Let’s all Drive Off the Fiscal Cliff

I was going to write a 2012 end of the year blow out blog post, but before I knew it 2013 was already at my doorstep.

But 2012 didn’t end with a whimper.

Between Maya “end of the world” prophesies and America’s drive toward the economic “fiscal cliff” (for my friends in foreign countries and those not politically inclined the “fiscal cliff” refers to a combination of year-end spending cuts and tax increases that would have gone into effect had the U.S. Congress failed to act) 2012 ended on a dramatic note.

I spent Christmas and New Year’s Eve in the United States capitol city of Washington, D.C. visiting my sister. I took this photograph along Pennsylvania Avenue where at one end is the U.S. Capitol (as seen in the photo) and the other is the White House.

This was similar to another shot I took a couple of months ago that has become one of my best selling stock image best selling stock image

Putting the drama aside I wanted to wish everybody a Happy New Year and hope 2013 brings you great photographic opportunities.

Happy Travels!
