i HAATE Washington D.C.

Recommended Posts

okay so i just got back from shooting another wedding in our nations capital.. UGH.. i hate hate hate that city. sorry for anyone who likes it (but ive never found a single person who can claim that they love living there)

 

the biggest head ache about that place (besides being way too expensive) is that driving there is the biggest pain in the ass... even with navigation you get lost. 3 different high ways should NOT share the same road. thats just stupid. have one road be named one thing and another road named something else... who came up with that dumbasss plan. stupid city engineers should be hung but some unpleasant places.

 

and its way too expensive. a ticket there costs like 200 bucks more then flying to new york.. and its the same fricking distance.

 

and theres nothing really GREAT about the city. no pretty view no beautiful scenery. sure they got great museums and monuments and history to it. but come on... are you really going to go to a museum every day. so once you are done seeing all taht you are left with nothing great haha

 

BUTTTTTT the wedding was really nice and the couple was adorable and i got some great pictures WHICH ill be posting on the blog. i am half ways done already with the pictures becuase i just stayed in the hotel room and worked on the pictures instead of going out

 

hope you all have hade a great holiday weekend :)

I am in total agreement with you- DC sucks! Ok so maybe not all of DC sucks but driving in DC is def the worst!!! Every time I have been to DC I have gotten lost. UGH! DC recently has been ranked as one of the top 5 cities in the US with the worst drivers! LOL I couldn't agree more!

now now, Northern VA is actually beautiful. We came from Nevada that is dry, brown, and has no greenery at all and VA is amazingly green and scenic. DC is beautiful if you enjoy beautiful buildings. As for driving, I agree its frustrating however that's what public transportation is for, take the metro anytime you're in the city.

DH and I love it here and are really happy with our experience in the past two years here.

I love DC. But, we only go there on weekends. Now that we live about 4 hours from DC, people fly up to see us & we drive there for the weekend. So much to do & it's all free :)

JM- i feel you on driving in DC!!! I went to school there and I swear I never got it right. I think there are a couple nice places to take pictures. I always thougth the cobblestone in Georgeton ws cute and the national mall has (some) nice spots....the reflection pondhuh.gif I didn;t realize it was so expensive though. Besides the ticket would you say it's more than San Francisco or New York?
