As Washingtonians, we have grown up in the great Smithsonian Institute museums and they are a large part of our photography life. We love photographing in Washington DC for events and pleasure. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the United States and the architecture and museums offer visitors such a plethora of subjects to study and for photogs, to photograph. Our favorites are the air and space museums in both locations of DC and Northern Virginia. The National Air & Space Museum at Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Va houses the Space Shuttle Discovery and is a favorite to photograph. We visited again recently at a quieter hour where we could capture more of the Discovery and museum.
The space shuttle Discovery is the centerpiece of the James S. McDonnell Space Hangar at the National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Va.
