Cathedrals have great acoustics and the sound of hundreds of drummers is truly awesome in every sense of the word. Yesterday I had the fortune to witness the annual "Seeing Deeper" drum circle at the Washington National Cathedral lead by Katy Gaughan and featuring the Bele Bele Rhythm Collective.
DC community participants of all ages singing, laughing, dancing, and of course, drumming.
A picture may be worth a thousand words but to appreciate this experience you must have a listen.
While walking from my hotel to the Met, I came across this beautiful statue on E 87th Street.
She's in a little garden belonging to the Liederkranz Foundation, an organization dedicated to German-American relations.
Impromptu walk through Georgetown in Washington, DC. The neighborhood-wide international art installation, Georgetown Glow, is still in full swing through January 1. Here are my photos of the "Resonant Stacks" by Ulr Studio & Sho Architecture. The first one makes me think of time-travel by Tardis and the second one I was going for a mysterious, futuristic Blade Runner-feel.
Yesterday I spent the afternoon at the U.S. Botanic Gardens in Washington, DC. The Christmas decorations are up and there is a hall dedicated to poinsettias. I never realized there were so many different varieties of leaf shape, size, and color. My favorites were the pink poinsettias called "Luv You Pink."

My all-time favorite photo. Taken when I was first learning photography…This was the first photo where I truly felt like I understood my camera and my camera understood me and we created something beautiful together.
