Frozen 2014 (Cont.)

Another winter pic of 2014. I needed to make one more stop to take a few pictures of the frozen Potomac because it might melt already in the next few days as temps will be going above freezing starting tomorrow.

Missing you, Ateneo

"Designed by Jose Pedro Recio and Carmelo Casas, the edifice’s massive triangular structure symbolizes the Holy Trinity, as well as the three-fold mission and vision of the school. Its shape and design is also meant to suggest the outstretched arms of the Sacred Heart, and the traditional Filipino bahay kubo." 
--About the Church of the Gesu, Ateneo de Manila University website.

I used to hear mass at the Gesu every other week (they don't celebrate mass every week due to parish "issues"). Can't wait to go back. 

See you in a couple years.

More on winter 2014

Thank God for a 50-degree weather today. Though it's still not the ideal weather as it was raining the whole day, a below-freezing temperature is much welcome.

Posting another photo I took during those cold days. Day after New Year 2014, I thought this would be the coldest day of the year registering a windy 17 deg (fahrenheit). But the Polar Vortex the week after broke decades-old record lows. on January 7, DC registered a low temperature of 5 degrees, with a wind chill that felt like -10.

Rush hour under the bridge

I've always wanted to photograph the Memorial Bridge during rush hour as I am fascinated with rushing cars' lights flood the bridge's beautiful architecture. This time, I decided to finally do the shoot to also capture the frozen Potomac River. :)
