Born and raised in Washington, D.C. I knew my town. Then I moved back after a 15 year absence. Geez, had things changed.

Inauguration January 20, 1997
The events of September 11, 2001 changed much of where I could go, how I could get there and what I was allowed to bring. The new realities sit juxtaposed with my memories.
Walking the grounds last week.
I love being a tourist and I’m truly lucky to live in a town that caters to that part of me. I started a collection of current photos of my D.C. explorations. And after a recent tour of the U.S. Capitol I decided to call the collection E Pluribus Unum.

Each time I enter a D.C. institution I’m struck by what this city means and wants to mean, by how it began and how it is developing.
The collection will grow on Flickr but I wanted to introduce it here with a few recent pix and some from a while ago.
Until you get a chance to visit this beautiful town I hope you’ll drop by and see it this way.
Wandering "the Hill" last winter.
