David Ortiz aka Big Papi will easily go down as one of Boston’s best players.  You already know I’m a Red Sox fan so I made a trip to a trip to Fenway to see the Big Papi before he retired.

The 3-time World Series champion and 10-time All-Star is having one of the best years for a retiring player, helping clinch the American League East.

I went to a late season game against the Tampa Bay Rays.  This is the closest I’ve ever sat at a game!  My seat was behind home plate looking down the first base line.

I visited these three barns while on a production shoot in Seneca, Illinois.

Love the wood textures here!

I found the stacked wood after crawling in a little nook inside the barn.

I noticed this one while driving.  I went back the next day as the storm clouds rolled in.

Inside the Washington Monument

After all these years living in the Washington, DC area I finally took the opportunity to go inside the Washington Monument.  It’s been reopened to the public for about seven months after being closed for 32 month of repairs due to damage from 2011 5.8 magnitude earthquake that hit the area.

I went on one of the coldest days of the year but was able to stand in the lodge to keep warm.  After going through security there’s a small hallway where you wait for the elevator.  After a short wait I was on my way up 500 feet to the observation level.

East: US Capitol

The National Mall is currently under maintenance  but it’s still a great view towards the Capitol.  The buildings on the left with the red tops house the US Treasury Department.US Capitol / photo by Renel Holton / www.renelholton.com / IMG_3010

Here’s a closer view with the Supreme Court behind to the left and the Library of Congress to the right.

West: Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is one of my favorite memorials!

Tip: Same-day tickets are on a first come first serve basis at the back window of Washington Monument Lodge.  You can also reserve tickets in advance online for a small service fee and shipping costs.  The tour wasn’t crowded when I went but during spring and summer months tickets go quickly.

London through Instagram #RenelInLondon

Written by , Posted in England, Europe & Nordic, Instagram, iPhone 5s, London, Travel

Note: If you have trouble viewing the photos be sure to view this post directly on my website.

 

In 2014 I had the opportunity to work in my company’s London office for a month!  It wasn’t always convenient to shoot with my Canon 7D as I was out and about so I shoot a lot with my iPhone.

Be sure to follow me on Instagram @renelmedia and check out more of my London adventures using #RenelInLondon.

 

London Eye

The first thing I did when I landed was visit the London Eye.

NFL International Series at Wembley Stadium

This was my second NFL game ever, and I got to see the Detroit Lions rally back in the final seconds to beat the Atlanta Falcons.  I grabbed pretty decent seats from StubHub.

 

Exploring some of the tourist sites…
