While visiting Thomas Jefferson's home Monticello near Charlottesville, VA last summer, I couldn't resist taking an image of Jefferson's house.  I didn't want to take the same views everyone else seems to take.  I knew from my guide (who happened to be my niece Katy!) that Jefferson was famous for his gardens and interest in agriculture.  I wanted this to reflect in my image of Monticello.

When travelling to destinations that have photographic potential, I always bring my basic architectural equipment setup, camera, filters, tripod, shutter release, and light meter.  That way, I don't let a photographic opportunity slip away.
