I haven't posted much recently. The gloomy weather hadn't been favorable to photography, and I was somewhat at loose ends for a while waiting for my turn to get vaccinated and feeling like the world was receding further and further from me. But now the weather has improved, and so has my state of mind, with a vaccination appointment for Friday. Last Sunday I took a walk with my dog on the National Mall in DC and started taking photos again. I've already posted a photo of the Capitol behind a fence and one of the Smithsonian, which was more like a technical exercise in shallow depth of field, but I thought I'd post a few more photos from that walk. I'm a little uneasy about posting my own amateurish efforts here when I see so many wonderful, expertly processed images by others, but I'll give it a try.

Those are great, Bill. Looking forward to the A&I / Castle building reopenIng. I remember as a child seeing the rockets in that area before they built the Air and Space Museum. The dusk images are well captured.

Agree, with your weather comments. Despite the lack of snow accumulation, we have had many days of precipitation locally.

Nice set! I especially enjoy the photo of the Washington Monument. Just do me the favor, please, of straightening it so it doesn't look like the Leaning Tower of Washington. :ROFLMAO:

Does this look better?
