Some of my pictures don’t seem to have been taken, including any I snapped on top of the DC Post Office, and others are far too blurry. Obviously I will need some adjustment to this newfangled “camera” technology. Nonetheless, here’s a few shots from the trip:
The best-looking of the shots from the American Folk Art Museum. It was surprising – half of the pieces in their folk art gallery were of Death or the Devil. I don’t know whether I missed the theme of the exhibition, or if this is some commentary on the US psyche.
A shot of the Capitol, so you don’t think I just took pictures of the Devil in DC.
Some mysterious forbidden tentacular beast. I say “forbidden” because we didn’t realize it was a no cameras exhibition until after I took it. I’m not sure what art museum it was, as the art museums on the Mall exist in a complicated labyrinth of interconnected underground tunnels.
On the way back, I made a couple stops in Pennsylvania. This is a shot of Mineral Springs Park, a.k.a. Rosenthal, near which John Georg Hohman lived. The stream to the right is actually a stream from the spring itself, which once was quite famous for its healing properties. The old hotel building is still there, hidden behind a modern sports club’s additions.
I also drove past the Hexenkopf, but I wasn’t too sure where it was, and there was no real place to pull over.
It was quite the fun trip, both on a professional and personal front.
