The Library Of Congress.A true Washington DC gem.

I took a tour of the Capitol while visiting Washington DC. At the end of the tour our guide directed us to a tunnel into the Library of Congress.I had not planned on visiting but am very glad for this change of plans. It really is an amazing sight.

Mike’s Miscellaneous Mondays. Random Shots From Washington DC

Just before the July 4th holiday I spent a few days in Washington DC. I took a lot of photos and intend to put together some posts in the coming weeks. Meanwhile I wanted to share just a few of the images I captured while I was there.

Martin Luther King Memorial, Washington DC

The Martin Luther King memorial is  relatively new and this was my first opportunity to see it. Like many of the other memorials it needs to be experienced in person. It is very impressive with Dr. King gazing out over the Tidal Basin towards  the Jefferson memorial edged with some of his quotations.

National Park Service also has ranger led tours of the site. http://www.nps.gov/mlkm/index.htm

Mike’s Miscellaneous Mondays: Sheepdogs On The Ring Of Kerry

I have not done a miscellaneous Monday in a long time. I wanted to share some images from the Sheepdog Trial Demo I saw on my trip to The Ring of Kerry. It is so worth seeing.
