I was down at the National Gallery of Art this weekend to see Heaven and Earth: Art of Byzantium from Greek Collections (more on that later…) and saw this incredible view of the Fall foliage and the juxtaposed with brilliant white Capitol building.
There were a few clouds that kept casting interesting shadows alternatively between the trees and the Capitol building. I also love this view down Pennsylvania Ave; its so dramatic.
Happy Halloween! New England seems to decorate for the Fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving really well – maybe it has something to do with our close proximity to Salem and Plymouth. I particularly like these pumpkin-headed scarecrows in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The entire downtown is decorated with these 8 feet tall, black clad, wiry fellows. They’re spooky but not very much, since some of them are dressed in old black concert tees.
