Capital Scenes, November, 2016

Dejected. Disappointed. Demoralized. Desolated. That's pretty much how we felt after November 8; and still feel. On November 14th we traveled to Washington, DC, to stay in Rachel and Will's house, pet-sitting, while they were with the Sehestedts for a Thanksgiving holiday in Maui. We were on foot nearly everywhere we went in DC--mostly NoMA and Truxton Circle, Capitol Hill, Dupont Circle, downtown--and every now and then took some pix...
Not a happy place...















Wandering into a Bernie rally; an alternative
reality...



















Apparently did not get the memo about Trump















May they be just as inactive the next two years as the past two
(or six, actually)

"Move on...close up" said the dust-covered man on the
dust-covered horse as his troops approached Vicksburg; seems
like good advice again






























Innovative use of containers















Flying buttress



















Religious humor downtown



















Covering over I-395 at NY Avenue will yield 3 whole new
blocks for the developers
















Speaking of whom...the long-dead door-knob factory near
Rachel's is undergoing gentrification; historic door-knobs
















The Old Post Office on Pennsylvania Ave., formerly home
to the National Endowment for the Humanities and the
National Endowment for the Arts, where I spent many hours
over the years past

















Sic transit, Gloria















Outside the Newseum...with Trump's ongoing
war on the media, and truth, one fears for
these values..

I should think that DC is in such gloom these days with billionaire know-nothings filling not only the White House, but all of the cabinet positions that should have gone to talented, intelligent people.
