Exercising restraint

Erik spotted this album on a stoop while he was walking to the train the other morning. A Dylan album free for the taking. Erik's vinyl problem has been noted before but there's two reasons Erik didn't bite: 1) It's Dylan's JC period. Not good for anyone. 2) Erik already owns this on vinyl.

Setting Up His Shots

A little insight into how Erik manages to get so many great shots.
First trick of the trade: lots of bending and awkward neck turning. Looks fun, right?

I Think Locusts Are Next . . . But Let Me Check My iPhone to Confirm.

Karen isn't usually superstitious, but she's pretty sure this is a sign of the Apocalypse. At least according to WikiReligion anyway.

What's Wrong With This Picture?

Answer: All the examples of Ice Cream.

Friends of G.O.B. Washington, D.C. Chapter

Wow, so they're apparently not just in Italy? My apologies to those of you who think this posting is too soon.

Sometimes We're Patriotic, Deal With It.

There are very few things in life that make Karen get a little misty. The Lincoln Memorial and the giant carving of the Gettysburg Address are two of them, don't judge until you see them yourself. And if you have and weren't moved, you are a robot, but not in a good way. 

Cool Digs, Man . . .

The hotel was pretty cool, if you like mid century modern furniture and pop art.

Some Nice Landscape

We had some pretty amazing weather and were really lucky with some of the views. Check out the moon! It's almost like DC is a clean, pretty place!  (spoiler alert: it's a little sketchy)


The Burgs recently took a trip to our nation's capital. While we did take a couple cab rides, sadly, we did not run into that D.C. Cab.

The Washington Monument is the world's tallest stone structure and tallest obelisk. And you can see that thing sticking up like a pointy finger from everywhere.

See what we mean? And Erik wasn't even trying to take a picture of it in that last one.

There were definitely other buildings jockeying for "Biggest Ham of D.C.", but the Monument wins by a landslide.  Nice try "1600 Pennsylvania Avenue" . . . or whatever you call yourself.
