It’s been more than a month since I posted pictures to this space so here are a few of my better ones from that time. As always, a larger collection of my photographs are in my Flickr feed, at least until Yahoo has their fire sale.

Cooling Off

On a hot June day, this young lady enjoyed cooling off by walking through the water feature in the Kogod Courtyard at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and Portrait Gallery. Most adults just walked around it.

Lighter. Simpler. Faster

This is a 50’s era “portable” reel-to-reel audio recorder used by Voice of America reporters. It’s part of a display on the history of the organization in their Washington DC headquarters.

Guitar Player

The guitarist was part of a jazz quartet that provided music during an open house at the Smithsonian Arts and Industries Building. The Building is undergoing extensive renovation and will soon reopen with a history of world’s fairs held in both the US and other countries.

The Old Post Office Pavilion

The Old Post Office Pavilion on Pennsylvania Avenue in DC is being renovated into a luxury hotel to open sometime later this year. It will be a long time before I will be able to apply the new name to the building without gagging. :-)
