    Weekend Focus: Smile like it’s Friday (because it is)

      It’s Memorial Day weekend and you’re either out of town at the shore or some other wonderful location enjoying the tranquility. Or you’re here, where peace and quiet will be in short supply.

The other way you can tell that it’s sunrise is that most of the people up at this time are photographers with their tripods. Image by Sujinder Pothula. It is part of the DC Focused flickr pool.
