Out of Many, One

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.

Great! Loved each pic. We have really learned to appreciate DC since Cheryl and Millie moved there. Just amazed at the foresite our forefathers had to build this city and how well the construction and beauty of those buildings have withstood the years.
