The Backflip Shoe

I found this video after looking at some co-workers blogs.  I couldn’t help but smile as I watched it, even though I wasn’t sure what made me grin.  Take a look and see what you think.

It’s funny, but not that funny.  The idea is good, but not that good.  The concept is innovative, but not that innovative.  Maybe my smile came from seeing such a well-balanced attempt at being “not bad”.

Our Nation’s Capital By Night

As the sun sat on our tour, the images I was capturing changed significantly.  I can’t really explain it, but they seem to take on a much more patriotic quality.  If you mouse over the images you will see the name of each subject appear.

Our Nation’s Capital By Day

This weekend we had some visitor’s in town.  My aunt and cousin came to visit for a long weekend.  We had a wonderful time with them and did a lot of catching up.  One of the things we did together was take a bus tour of Washington.  While out, I took the opportunity to take some pictures with our ultra-wide angle lens and our SLR.
