Cleaning the Pool, Washington D.C. (April 2009)

This was taken on my first trip to the US.Ā  It’s still one of my favourite pictures – it just seems to have a whole story wrapped up inside it.

    • My overwhelming impression of Washington (at least in the centre) is size. Not terms of the city itself, but everything in it. Each building feels massive, and solid, and every road wide. The cars are larger the average, and the monuments are too.

  1. You’ve seen something I’ve never seen, JP, even though I’m from America, so kudos to you. I was immediately taken to the Tuileries Garden which I have seen, and wonder what all is found when they have to clean it out. That would be a treasure hunt for sure at either place. šŸ™‚
