I don't have many belongings these days, so I decided to go visit one of "our" collections at the National Gallery.

Bonus: Who can name the dude I'm in a staring contest with?

This is Sequoyah.... and his Cherokee Alphabet. I think this painting is a Charles Bird King original circa 1830... oil on canvas... Do I win a prize??

oh wow, this shot is amazing. What camera do you have, what settings did you use? I tried to get something going with mine today, but was not as sharp as this!

@lingerino: excellent work! your prize is in the mail.

That portrait is an 1834 reproduction of the original which was destroyed in a fire. Still, it's the one in our history books...

@robfrenzy: I cranked up the iso and manually set shutter/aperture, but don't remember to what...

White balance set using Andrew Jackson's head :)
