The beauty of jet lag is you get up nice and early and can get some more morning exercise.  I went to bed at 8PM, woke up at 10pm, 11:30am, 1am and finally wide awake at 2:23am.   After working for a few hours I decided to head to head out for a morning walk…

Today’s Configuration: Leica M9 with a Summilux 35mm f/1.4.

The sign of morning… beer restocking.

What a good idea to add a touch of color to what is typically a very dark and dirty place…

Do not take a photo of this building!  It took about 3 seconds for guards to come out and say ‘I know you are a tourist but this is a government building and you cannot take photos’.   Hmmm a nondescript government building on the edge of DC…with very attentive security.    I wonder how they knew I was a tourist…I wonder if they are reading this now…I wonder if those black vans and helicopters are following everyone else in DC?

Legal Sea Foods…  I haven’t been there in years.   Maybe we’ll eat there tomorrow.

Now this I love… There is a Bike Share in DC that you can subscribe to and just ride the bike where ever you are going and leave it.   When you want another one just grab it.   I ended up bumping into one of the owners and he said they are doubling the number of stations they have.
