Doors: I

Let's be honest, if you've ever seen my travel photos, you knew these were coming. Door goodness has so far been hard to come by, but I am hopeful.

The Sights and Sites of Washington

Today I feel as though we literally walked Washington. On a perfectly crisp but sunny day, we explored a city which feels halfway between New York and Paris - wide boulevards, cool air and big, impressive monuments which echo Roman temples. Here are some of the favourite picks.
World War II Memorial.

The Capitol Building.

Lincoln Memorial

The Monument to high, pointy things, viewed from the Lincoln Memorial.
Um, a big house in Washington. I think an important person is going to live here soon, but for now some country hick is renting it out...

A Rude Duck

I tried so hard to get a picture of this duck's shiny, green head, but all I got what this. I think it was showing off, because it literally didn't stop diving when we approached it.

So imagine a pretty, green head - it was nice for what we saw of it.

Row Houses, Foggy Botton, DC

Pretty little houses all in a row. How I love thee, small coloured houses.

Politics, The Mission, San Francisco

Victorian Houses in The Mission and Castro, San Francisco

In case you can't tell, I adore these Victorian houses. I can't stop taking photos of them everywhere!

So much zany... where does it come from?
