Art in Bloom


As my vaccinated self slowly emerges from pandemic hibernation into a reopening world, one project this month has been to photograph all 26 cherry blossom sculptures scattered throughout the DMV as part of Art in Bloom. I have been taking “normal” photos as well as augmented reality photos using Pokemon Go. Here are a few of my favorites:

No words…


I don’t even know (yet) what to say about the surreal domestic terrorist attack on the United States Capitol today. Years ago (including the early years of this blog), I worked there, and one of the positions I had involved reminding visitors of the rules: no food allowed inside. No flash photography in certain areas. You must stay with your tour guide when in the Capitol proper. Please don’t block the stairs or elevator. The rules were a little stricter than a typical museum’s rules, but then the Capitol Visitor Center, United States Capitol, and adjoining office buildings aren’t a typical museum.

How have we arrived at this moment?

Some photos from my days working in the Capitol Visitor Center:
