While we were at the Museum of Modern Art today, we saw so many great exhibits. The interpreter (right of centre) hosted a sketching tour of the Long Run exhibit and here they were examining Lee Bontecou’s sculpture.

The Conservatory Garden of Central Park is a quiet part of the park set aside from the busy-ness of the rest of the park (and New York in general).

On our way out of town, we stopped at Virginia Beach to see the Atlantic. A group of people were taking a horseback ride down the beach.

Axe Throwing

1/100s, f5, 400ISO, autoWB, 34mm.

One of the regular activities at the Timber Framers Guild conference is axe throwing (and this is before axe throwing got cool). T didn’t get a great score (you don’t get any points when both ends of the axe are touching the target) but he did make an effort in the rain.

Building at TFG

1/40s, f4, 400ISO, autoWB, 21mm.

At the Timber Framers Guild conference, there is usually a building project. This time, it was a children’s building project and they were tasked with hand-cutting the timbers for the other side of a play structure (one of them was pre-made and can be seen at the back of the area). The children really got involved and seemed to enjoy the challenge.

Inside Conservatory

Today we took the train into Washington DC and walked at least 10km around the Mall.
Maybe the grand buildings became boringly de-riguer after a while? Even in the off-season, there were hoards of tourists and the museums were packed. There’s definite appeal to free admission though! We went to the Lincoln Memorial and back to the Museum of Natural History. After a stop for local coffee at Compass Coffee, and a brief stop at the National Building Museum, we went to the US Botanical Gardens and enjoyed the view from the upper walkway (pictured) before heading back to our car.
