Quaint little picturesque Old Town, Alexandria, located on the outskirts of Washington D.C., tends to feel like home for everyone visiting no matter what season it is. But the holiday season tends to be the most beautiful. The colonial townhouses all brightly decorated with colorful wreaths and the trees overhead along King Street all twinkling with golden lights. Realizing how magical my town looked and felt during the holiday season, I decided to shoot a video showcasing my favorite spots in Old Town Alexandria.
This Christmas, my partner, Alex and I celebrated a few days earlier with small gifts under our travel-themed Christmas tree, a slice of Buche de Noel french cake from La Madeleine French bakery and cafe, and Fred Astaire tap dancing in Holiday Inn in the background. All of this while our 8 week old foster kitten, Timmy, following us loyally around the small apartment. When Christmas Day arrived, I woke up to our house alone with Timmy curled up next to me, purring loudly. After a bit of writing, my friend, Nick, stopped over and we celebrated Christmas with Italian food from Lena’s Woodfired Pizza and a stroll through the forest with the fading golden light in the distance. I brought my Canon 6D along and snapped a few shots!
