Welcome! This is the place I write about Things I Notice in my daily walkabouts as well as what I might think about things in my world.

Last of my DC Walkabout

The last week has been absolutely amazing for weather. Today the temperature was 81 degrees (F for you Canadians!). I mean, this is November! Usually the temperature is low enough that I can "believe" that the copperheads are hibernating. But---eighty---I'm thinking they are still laying in wait for me to set foot in the forest. So...I won't. As I was walking in front of the Archives last weekend, I noticed this woman seated on the "sitting ledge" and typing on her phone. Her nails were bright orange. I had to take this shot but wanted a closeup and so I asked her and she said yes. I wanted to stylize it a bit to give the hands an ethereal, artistic mood.Orange NailsThe shot below is from the fountain pond in front of the Navy Memorial. The other fountain just a few feet away was functioning perfectly, this one, not so much. That green shade in the water...that's not weird light, that's green stuff in the pond. ewwwGreen Pond
