It wasn't really that big of an adventure as I started out at Main Interior some 30 years ago and somehow managed the commute back then. It's just that as I age, my life takes on more epic meaning and I have a Samsung S-6 to document the epicness:
|Aparrently they are still working on our federal employee limo service|
|I still haven't seen the Zoo. But I've always liked Adams Morgan.|
|Uncrowded at off-peak mid-morning. I think the guy behind me works at Langley.|
|"DAMN the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!"|
-Admiral David Farragut, upon entering Mobile Bay, August 5, 1864.
|The Interior Department "Main Interior" or "MIB" 1849 C Street, NW|
But this is from the North or "E" Street side where I usually have entered.
|General Rawlins in a nice little park across from the "E" Street entrance to Interior.|
Rawlins kept Grant sober as Diet Coke does for me.
|"E" Street Entrance to Main Interior. Note the Interior Flag flying below the Stars and Stripes.|
|A new mural with a bit of our business propagandized - it is good business.|
|And the opposite wall. I think the tiles are original to the 1930's. (Secretary Ickes's WPA Palace)|
|Our wood and brass elevators also original (I believe).|
|When I do things, I do them up right. (Epicness)|
|On my conference call with the MSPB Judge in the Solicitor's Conference Room.|
Note the pic by the flag. I think that's Zion NP in Utah.
|I wasn't alone. Although I much prefer watching the crowds of tourists from all over the world at the Lincoln Memorial.|
I guess the Obama White House is almost as good.
|I used to walk the diagonal through Sherman's memorial as the most direct route.|
Now you can see how we're blocked off by the southeast end of the security cordon.
|And my hat goes off to the great man as one of the saviors of the Union.|
I'm sorry, but "War is Hell!" And it was the price we paid to free the Slaves
and redeem our Constitution. Check out Lincoln's Second Inaugural.
|"And the Wind was named . . ."|
|The Washington and the Willard Hotels. The Willard was fashionably restored a couple of decades ago.|
The original was The Place during the Civil War years. Pennsylvania Ave. and 14th Street, NW.
|The Treasury Department with Hamilton statue.|
|Finally, Metro Center on a greatly gentrified "G" Street.|
My mom always said, "Put people in your pictures!" This may be a bit much, Mom. It was a hot and tiring day in DC, but my work is done.
