Today I’m participating in the WordPress weekly photo challenge and this week’s theme is “extra, extra”. Remember you can click on each photo for a larger view.

When we visited Washington D.C. a few months ago, I decided we would take a tour bus to travel around the capital and see a lot of interesting places at once. Of course we got on and off many times for some up close sightseeing, but I also took a lot of quick photos from the inside of the bus. Did you notice I said quick photos? Being inside the bus means I didn’t have the ability to frame the shots the way I wanted to, including getting people and unwanted things out of the way. That made for a few extras in several of my pictures. This guy and his coffee cup are a perfect example of the many pictures I took from the bus. This is the US Capitol seen from the side. The cherry blossoms made up for the coffee guy as the “nice” extras in the picture.
This is the most narrow house in Georgetown, part of Washington DC. Too bad that tree happened to be in the way while I was taking a picture.
The Washington Monument was being renovated while we were there so depending on the angle you photographed it, you could include a nice crane in your shot like I did.
I was trying to photograph this American robin in the gardens of the Smithsonian castle when this grackle showed up to say hi. I bet he really wanted to be in the picture.
I didn’t take this last picture in Washington D.C. but I love the way this duck photobombed my photo of a white pelican. That’s a big extra in that picture.
