A Severe Lack Of DCA Pics!

Sat Jan 19, 2002 12:55 pm

Looking through the database at photos from the 3 D.C. area airports, I was suprised to see only 3 from DCA. I am curious as to why this might be. I can certainly understand why there would be few photos uploaded after 9/11 as this is now possibly the most secured airport in the country (if not the world), but even before 9/11 there are only those 3 photos.

I have flown through DCA a number of times and have always thought that this airport had some really nice backdrops and great photo potential as the photo below shows.

Hi Thomas,

I believe you may have searched wrong  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

We are out there taking pics at DCA every now and then. Rafal alone has 483 DCA shots! Search for “tipek dca” on the main page. He used to be homeless and lived on gravely point (sorry Rafal... couldn't resist!!).

Thanks Sunil,

I suppose I should have typed in DCA as opposed to KDCA! I found some 800 via the DCA search.

Hahaha

Few years ago I didnt have a car and the only transportation for me was Metro. So I could only visit DCA.

I have around 3000 to 4000 pictures from DCA from which around 150-200 is very good  Smile
Yes, I was teaching myself photography at DCA.

After getting myself car and a decent camera (Sunil dont laugh hehe) I discovered accidentaly spot at BWI.
Thats the place where my camp is now  Big grin

Tomorrow BWI !
