I accidentally left the flash on when I was taking photos of the Washington Monument the other night and the result was actually pretty cool.

So then I tried again.  It's like the Ghost of the Washington Monument is looming in the background in some sort of Paranormal Witness episode.

And then all I can think of is this SNL Sketch with Hugh Laurie and "Sounded more like Roger to me... 'Roooo-geeeer.'"

This was what I was really trying to do.

which is much more sophisticated and austere.
