I have been thinking a lot about the post last week regarding things that I love. After perusing my photos I realized that there are so many things that I love that I do not have on film, or in pretty little megapixels. So I am trying to remedy this problem.
I work on Capitol Hill, not to be confused with "On The Hill," meaning I don't work for Congress. Thank God. My office is in the area of DC known as Capitol Hill. I love where I work, because, well, every day I see this:
I also love being so close to the Library of Congress. The library is my favorite building in the District.
They displayed photographs last winter that were taken by the Farm Security Administration in the late thirties, early forties. As I was examining the shots I came upon one that looked really familiar. In the middle of the quiet, marble covered gallery, I yelped (yes yelped) because I realized that the photo I was starring at was of my hometown. Wicked cool. There is one coming up this fall about maps that I can't wait to see. No, I am not only a bill, I am also a nerd. Get over it.
There are more photos of the hill over on flickr.
