The next few posts contain pictures taken during a recent trip to Washington, D.C. (actually to nearby Tysons Corner and Falls Church). My father-in-law passed away in 1978 and is buried in Falls Church, Virginia. My wife and some of her brothers (and in one case his family) decided to go to visit his grave on the occasion of his birthday. It was also an an opportunity to meet up with some old friends living in Washington and to do some shopping and sightseeing (at least for some). We’d been to Washington, D.C. many times and my wife had lived an studied there. So we didn’t feel the need to go sightseeing. It was also very hot and walking around in the sun wasn’t appealing. Apart from the times we went out for meals with family and friends we stayed in and around our hotel and the enormous mall attached to it (you could go into the mall from the hotel without going out in the heat). Another reason for not going sightseeing was that I didn’t want to take yet more “postcard like” shots of the Washington sights. Instead I wandered in an around the hotel and took pictures there.
