    Alicia Eggert, Moment Alicia Eggert, Moment Washington D.C. is known for its variety of museums, from the Air & Space Museum, to the National Gallery of Art to the recently built National Museum of African American History and Culture.

  2. A Need to Exercise

    15 Sep 2022
    Wearing their heart on their tailgate About forty years ago I used to hit the gym at least three times a week. I miss those days, so does my body. Now, despite my good intentions, my routine, if it can be called that, is at best sporadic. Whenever I swear…

  3. My Neighbor Anne

    02 Sep 2022
    I’ve moved several times over the past 10 years and I never know what my neighbors will be like. Some keep to themselves, others are incredibly intrusive, and a few have interesting stories. Three years ago I moved into the Ontario, a stately old co-op in Northwest Washington D.C.  Built…

  4. Losing Weight to Travel

    27 Aug 2022
    Canon R5 Kit Fuji XT-4 Kit When I started this blog I did so with the intent of not reviewing cameras. This isn’t so much a review as an advisory, related to travel and street photography. If your main goal in travel is to create outstanding photographs without be overburdened…

    “A stroke of luck to be flying over it within an hour or so after the eruption. We were the only ones there along with the Icelandic Coast Guard helicopters. In such a situation, the images make themselves.” - Rajan Parrikar Let me first state that images do not make…

  7. No Mas!

    14 Aug 2022
    Finally, my car is parked and unpacked. My road trip totaled 2265 miles over 23 days through 7 cities. I’m bushed and you know what? I’m not doing this again. Don’t get me wrong, I love travel, especially for taking photographs. I love looking at architecture in different cities, trying…

  8. NYC

    11 Aug 2022
    We are working our way back to D.C. with a stop in New York City. The drive from Boston to NYC took 1-1/2 hrs longer than it should have, as expected. It’s been some time since I was here, it took just a few minutes for me to remember how…

  9. Quebec City

    03 Aug 2022
    Quebec City, my fourth and last stop in Canada before heading back to Washington, D.C. The weather forecasts for this road trip were not good, in fact, they were bleak, calling for a lot of rain and cloud cover. As it turned out, I have had but two marginal days.…

  10. Montreal Magnificent

    02 Aug 2022
    Rue St. Paul After seven days, it was goodbye to Ottawa. To be candid, four days would have been enough. This is a road trip, I suppose I could have ventured further out of the city but I don’t know the region and at about $6.00 a gallon, I didn’t…
