AFTER WEEKEND WORK


I actually gasped with delight when I first saw these photos. The colors were perfect, just what I was looking for. I had taken them on a Sunday, on a sunny afternoon after I finished some weekend work at the office. Though the plaza between the Government North  and Government South buildings has a particular name, it escapes me. (For the record, I work in the Government North building, which is on the left.) But from the first day I visited, from the day I went in for my interview, I was struck by the long pathways, the tall columns. And, on Sundays, when no one is there, the area seems much more colossal and humbling. I even spent some time on the historic canal where, though it doesn't show, I met several people jogging or walking their dogs. It was a delightful February afternoon, really, and I'm glad I was able to get it on film.

  2. These came out fantastic! Love the one of the tunnel especially, but they're all great. I'm always curious about cities with downtown areas that are where people work but don't live, and on weekends become ghost towns. I went to Charlotte, NC once and it was very much like that. DC (and Northern Va, where I live) are pretty busy all the time, everywhere, which is a good and bad thing I guess (good for shops, restaurants, etc., but bad if you don't like crowds, which I don't).
