For the past few years, Isabel Lara has walked to and from work from Dupont Square to the Smithsonian — and taken photographs along the way. The fruits of her Instagram file show one way Lara has come to enjoy the bane of many Washingtonians: The commute. Look through these examples and send us your Instagram photos at #DCOnFoot. (UPDATE: We’ve added an image by reader @onelittlebecca below):

1. A perfect spring day


2. Yoga al fresco at Dupont

3. Make way for ducklings!

4. Flowers on the way

5. A brassy start

6. The monument, pre-scaffolding


7. Hola, Obama! 

That’s just one trip to work. Share an Instagram image at #DCOnFoot. Here’s one from Thursday, pre-storm, by @onelittlebecca:
