By Glynn Wilson –

WASHINGTON, D.C. – After realizing it was the 14th anniversary of 9/11 on Friday, I rode the mountain bike to the College Park Metro station and took the train downtown. I decided to ride around the White House and see what new vantage points I could find to photograph.

After hanging for a little while in Lafayette Park on the north side of the White House, I rode around to the south and noticed extended barricades and it looked like something was going on connected to the 9/11 anniversary. About the time I made it around to the south lawn, I heard a helicopter overhead and looked up.

It was Marine One, apparently with President Barack Obama onboard coming back to the White House from the Pentagon, where there was a special ceremony on the anniversary of the plane crash there on 9/11. So I was able to photograph it coming and going. Stock photos for the future and a photo essay for today. Notice the flag at half-staff.
