Washington Rediscovered: Year 3

We're now into our third year of being back in Washington after six years overseas in Hungary and Saudi Arabia. Since I had done Washington in detail during our last tour in the States, from 2006 to 2010, I'm still trying to find new things here to photograph rather than a rehash of its many monuments and impressive buildings and parks. So far, I seem to be succeeding!
