DC or Bust

So here you are, the report that you've all been waiting for. I could go on forever in words about our trip to DC, but I'd rather go on in pictures. And few words. For once.

The metro system there is all kinds of awesome.
It's aesthetically pleasing.


Clean.


Efficient as hell.


It felt good to be back on public transportation.



There are no words for this place.


Over 290,000 are buried there and it's one of the most beautiful and peaceful places I've ever seen. I could have sat and stared for days.


This place made my heart hurt.


As did this one.


Recognize this guy?


Have you ever wondered what the inside of the dome looks like?


Well it's a fresco of a saintly looking George Washinton,
surrounded by his 13 angelic colonies.


The National Art Gallery now ranks among my top 5.
Maybe even top 3.


All my old friends were there.

While it was a work-trip for me,


it was still a great trip for us.



And it was awesome.

Gorgeous pictures Nicole from your trip …. You should exhibit them at Invoke. Great cross section of the city too. I wish I’d visited more often when Terry was there.
