Prelude to a Storm?

If you move from right to left you can follow the weird transition of the sky and clouds from blue and fluff to grey and hulking. Click for full panorama. Strange skies over the DMV this afternoon, and still don’t know if we’ll actually get rain out of it. Also I guess I’m supposed to say something about whether this is a derecho, because that’s a thing we all apparently know about now?

UPDATE: apparently, nothing will happen to DC. Like the snow scare from earlier this year.

Water, stone, glass

Instagram didn’t allow me to post this uncropped, but I enjoy this space in DC so much I wanted to post the original. It’s the Kogod Courtyard at the National Portrait Gallery, and this fluid floor section is a neat complement to the undulating flow of the incredible ceiling. At times I have delusions of photographic skill, I’ll be posting my attempts from time to time. Enjoy.
