Gina, your title “Everyday People,” has me traipsing back to Arrested Development’s song with the same title…then I had to hear Mr. Wendel (oh, yeah)…thanks. Your top pic & coffee house one are my favorites.
Thanks for your comment, Angie! I always appreciate your feedback.
I heard Sly and the Family Stone’s version of “Everyday People” twice during our weekend in D.C., which is how this post got its name. ‘Mr. Wendel” is a great song, too. Brings back fond memories of the early 90’s . . .
Awesome Gina! You really captured unique moments….day-to-day moments that will never happen in that fashion ever again, unique in time and space, too many people overlook or just plain take for granted daily moments. I love the shot you got in the subway tunnel and the Segway peoples haha…Segways always make me laugh :)…
Stunning work, Gina Marie! I’m so happy that you were able to go to DC. My personal faves are the iconic Durer “Praying Hands” and the magnificent capture of the Metro. I can only hope that if I’m able to ride the Metro myself (and soon!) I can experience it the same way as you’ve shown us here. Beautiful, dramatic lighting too.
Thanks for your lovely comment, Patricia! My husband and I had originally planned a visit to DC in October, but our plans changed due to Hurricane Sandy. When I read your comment about the Pre-Raphaelite Exhibit a few weeks ago, I knew that it was time to rebook. So thank you so much for the inspiration! 🙂
I made it to see the Pre-Raphaelite exhibit this past weekend (practically the last day!) For me, it was truly a sublime experience – I can’t say how much I loved it! And my husband couldn’t believe when we saw Segway riders just like your lovely photo!! Your magnificent pics really have captured the attractive urban D.C. “aura” that surrounds Pennsylvania Ave., especially. The weather we experienced was horrible, however – poured like crazy!! You are a very wise person to have traveled there when you did! Thanks Gina Marie!
Hi Patricia! I’m so glad you got to see the exhibit. Amazing, indeed. (Rainy days are perfect museum days, no?) Sounds like you had a nice trip, in spite of the weather. And how funny about having seen the Segway riders! I suppose it’s a popular activity along that iconic street. 🙂
