DC Again

Posted in Architecture, Family, Food by joncrispin on 14/10/2013

Cris and I are in DC for the long weekend visiting Peter.  We have been walking quite a lot and eating well.  Today was a visit to Tortilla Cafe near Eastern Market which was amazing and cheap. / I haven’t been inspired to shoot much, but the light was nice today and it is pleasant to see roses still blooming in October.

It is odd to see the public parts of the federal government closed up (not that you could get up these steps when there is no government shut-down).  I used to spend quite a bit of time shooting here, and for a time anyone could walk right up to the top. Times change; what can you do?

The Pearl and I had a nice walk late this afternoon.  It was, as they say “seasonably warm”.  The cattails are starting to go to seed, or whatever it is they do.

As usual, she found some water on the way back to the car and I was happy to have an old towel to dry her off.  She is a great dog.
