Rediscovering Home: Washington, D.C.

We have just moved back to the States after three years in Budapest and almost three in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, with the US State Department. I’m trying not to redo my previous galleries of Washington and the surrounding area, including http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/washington_dc_a_capital_city and http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/rediscovering_capitol_hill__washington_d_c and http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/the_lights_of_washington and http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/washington_dcbeyond_the_beltway so hope I can find some interesting new things to photograph this time around!
