No idea what most of this is .. Glad I don’t do photos for a living, I swear. Ran out of battery power half through the day….grrrrr son would not cooperate with me and take a pic of every nook and cranny with his camera so there are a few on his I’ll have to grab later as he went to work, but in the meantime, I like to get things off my hard drive and up online quickly, as I constantly expect data loss or gremlin tinkers coming and hammering my hard drive into smithereens. So here is yesterday, at least most of it, just driving and walking about D.C. in the sun and kind of frosty breeze. ….hmm….lookin at them they look like sh___ so here goes some time spent after all in Photoshop.
Driving around D.C. Snapping Buildings etc
THEN we toured the:
NATIONAL PORTRAIT MUSEUM IN D.C.
”The Greek Slave” by Hiram Powers (1805-1873)
Eve Tempted, modeled 1839-1842, carved 1873-1877, marble by Hiram Powers
Going out on a limb here, thinking maybe
this is POCAHONTAS.
Thomas Ball’s La Petite Pensee
the model was Thomas Ball’s eight-year-old niece Annie Chickering.
hmmmm Nero???? lol
FREEDOM FOR ALL PEOPLE
STILL FIGHTING IN THE 20th CENTURY
We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. . . .
Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.
