DC 2.26.2016_2240

Some business travel has kept me busy for a few weeks and so I have not posted for a while.  I was in DC recently and found this interesting perspective of the Washington Monument and the Capitol. Washington is so full of interesting architecture that creates fantastic lines and shadows.

Fields Of Old

Fields of old and fields of gold in this case.  Goldenrod is taking over an old farm field in rural North Carolina.

Chincoteague Pony Penning

The ponies swam from Assateague to Chincoteague today for the annual auction.  The swim was a very far distance from where I could watch but I had a front row seat as the ponies came into their pen.  Here are a few photographs of the event.  It was interesting to watch the social interaction as the herd settled into their new, confined area.  Foals found their mamas and one stallion with a blond mane charged around the pen, apparently rounding up his mares.  Even at the hay bales he whinnied and studied the group for possible rivals.  The green tag on the blue-eyed foal marks him as a ‘buy back’, a pony that will be bid on but returned to Assateague to live wild with the herd.

Old Look, DC

Washington DC is interesting in so many ways. One is the mix of old historic buildings in the middle of a very modern city as seen here in the block of Jackson Place adjacent to Lafayette Square.  It looked so much to be a return to a forgotten time in a recent snow storm.

Treasury Building

The statue of Albert Gallatin, the longest serving U.S. Secretary of Treasury, stands vigilant in the snow last week in front of The Treasury Department building in D.C.

H Street Canyon

Late afternoon sun lights up one wall of the urban canyon at H and 17th in Washington, a timeless image in my mind.

Capital Snow

I was in Washington, DC all week at the American Shore and Beach Preservation Association annual Summit.  The city woke to a light snowfall this morning and I took a stroll around the White House and Mall to get a few shots of DC dressed up in snow.  I like the Washington Monument framed by a tree on the edge of the Mall.

Tractor Museum, Pink Hill, NC

Traveling through Pink Hill, NC over the weekend I saw this exhibit of old tractors that is apparently part of the Wilbur A. Tyndall Tractor Museum in that fine town.  I couldn’t resist making a nostalgic photograph of it.

Black-tailed Deer, Olympic National Park

This is scanned from a color slide taken in 1987 on Hurricane ridge in Olympic National Park.  The deer is a Black-tailed Deer, considered to be a subspecies of Mule Deer.  It posed peacefully on a beautifully clear day in front of the Olympic Mountains.
