The White House occupying some 18 acres at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington DC 20500

George Washington, the first President of the United States, selected the site and construction began in 1792. John Adams, the second president of the United States was the first to occupy the building.

During the war of 1812, the British Army set fire to the place, completely destroying the interior and badly damaging the exterior. It has been suggested that following the reconstruction of the building, it was painted white to hide the scorch marks of the fire.

To completely paint the exterior of The White House, as it stands today, would require some 570 gallons of paint.

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.

    Excellent!

  • Thanks, orko. I’ve always struggled with night shots previously … usually full of noise. This one didn’t turn out too bad, for a change
