Capture the Moment Monday

Dave Berry, Director of the Photography Department at Computer School for Seniors will be sharing his insightful Photo Tips with you every Monday for Capture the Moment Mondays.

If you are planning to visit Washington D.C. this spring or summer you must put the NEWSEUM on your itinerary.


This is definitely a photography opportunity you don't want to miss. Believe it or not there is a Kodak moment at every turn. The Newseum opened last year and you will go down memory lane seeing exhibits from years past. As you approach the Newseum from the outside you will see a display of newspaper front pages from all 50 states that greet patrons and passers-by each morning.


The Newseum, which bills itself as "the world's most interactive museum", features more than 125 interactive game and simulation kiosks, 15 theatres and two television studios. The exhibits in the Newseum are some of the best I have seen.

Some of my favorites, are the gallery of News over the past 100 years, the 9/11 gallery chronicling the attack on America, the Berlin Wall gallery featuring a 12 foot tall section of the Berlin Wall on display along with one of the 300 guard towers that stood along the 27 mile barrier between East and West Berlin, and the Internet, TV and Radio gallery. However, my most favorite gallery was the Pulitzer Prize Photographs gallery...This gallery features the most comprehensive collection of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs ever assembled as well as interviews with many of the photographers. After a four hour visit and 300+ photographs it was a photographic experience I can't wait to go back and do again--Hope I will see you there !!!!!!


Until next week thanks for dropping by...Meanwhile go out and have FUN WITH YOU CAMERA!!!!!
