This was the view on the mall in D.C. during the National Book Festival. If you want to see my description of the day, you can read about it (and see more photos) here on my writing blog.
I didn't take my good camera with me. Instead, I took an old camera that is lighter and easier to carry. As a result my pictures are much grainier than I'd like, and the color isn't quite as vibrant. I was kicking myself when I downloaded them, but then I remembered why I took the old one: the day was about running to and fro catching up with authors and not about trying to capture the perfect photo opportunity.
Sometimes my two worlds (writing and photography) collide well, and sometimes I just have to choose or I don't enjoy either one. This was one of those choosing moments.

Tomorrow I'll be walking the grass mall in front of our country's Capital with thousands of others to listen to dozens of authors talk about their books and about why and how they write. I went last year, and it's an incredible feeling to be amongst so many people who love the written word. Have a great weekend!

This photo would have been much better if A) I hadn't taken it through a car window B) that car hadn't been going 50 miles per hour and C) I'd set the ISO lower. But, when you're going 50mph and you come across this speeding by, you take what you can get. :)

I drove up the driveway last week after dropping my son off at the bus stop and the sun was streaming through the trees in such a way that the rays looked practically solid. I ran in and grabbed my camera, but when I came back this was all that was left.

On Tuesday, a cable worker came to bury some cables at the end of our driveway and snipped our telephone wires in the process, leaving me without internet for the past three days. (You can read all about that trauma here.) Since I didn't get a chance to post my "In honor of school starting" photos one by one, I'm posting some of my favorites all in one.
Ahh... the smell of crayons and pencil shavings!
