On the first full day of my vacation in Washington DC last week, I made sure to visit the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. I had toured the building at least 20 years ago, but I was surprised to find so much more there when I went again this time.
This time, one of the things that made an enormous impression on me—completely unrelated to the performances taking place there—was the spectacular vista provided from the terrace of the building.
What I tried to capture in this moody, late-afternoon shot was how the Potomac River bisected the capital from the suburbs of northern Virginia. To the left, on the other, Virginia side of the river, can be seen the beginning of the large office buildings that fill Rosslyn; to the right, more like specks in comparison, can be glimpsed the spires of Georgetown.
