Sightseeing in Washington D.C.


The Ballston subway station, Arlington, Virginia. Moments after taking the photo, a man in a suit approached and said it's against the law to take photos here.



The National Air and Space Museum "Milestones of Flight" gallery. The X-15 on the right, Apollo Command Module bottom center, and the tiny Mercury space capsule on the lower level, just forward of the X-15's wing (See this link for further descriptions: Link)



The "Wright Flyer", first in flight



Mr. Jefferson, inside his memorial. Jeff noted this inscription on the memorial's walls: "I have sworn upon the altar of god eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."



Jeff reassures a despondent George Mason. "The country is not going to hell in a hand basket, George."




This is about as close as you can get to the Capitol before coming under surveillance. In fact, I think that police car ahead on the left is about to come after me.
