Visiting Washington, D.C.: The Jefferson Memorial
The Jefferson Memorial is one of the most picturesque places to visit in Washington, D.C. and a must-see for anyone who has about a half a day to spend doing something beautiful.
Situated at a waterfront, the Jefferson is visible from several points, and adds a wonderful backdrop to a picnic, quiet conversation, jog, or walk with the kiddos. As you can see from the photos, even on a cloudy day, the Jefferson stands out and is a favorite among D.C. residents.
Unlike the Lincoln Memorial, which is often placed in high-profile, legal-type movies, the Jefferson is serene and extremely calm. I don't know if it's place in nearly as many movies as the Lincoln Memorial is, but the circular shape of the Jefferson surrounded by water makes it a wonderful place to take pictures.

How I Got these Shots
The Jefferson Memorial is one of local resident's favorite places. Majestic and surrounded by water, it shoots well in any (or no) light. It's breath-taking.
Note that these photos weren't taken with black or white film and I did not remove the color (they are digital color photos). It was just so cloudy and gray that day that nature did the black and white for me perfectly.
