Welcome to Weekly Explorer No. 14!
I’ve spent the last few days trying to take advantage of the remaining sunsets of summer. The National Cathedral, Library of Congress, and U.S. Botanic Garden are just a few of the places I visited.

One of my favorite photos was at the Bartholdi Fountain in the U.S. Botanic Garden (pictured above). Do you know how I got that soft, flowy water look?
