My Morning Run

Sometimes it's nice just to take photos of your own neighborhood for the sake of it. This wast taken while running 6 miles today. I love my city.

Old Post Office Building to be converted to Trump's new hotel. One of my favorite buildings in DC.

2nd Favorite Building - Smithsonian Castle

3d favorite building - Old Executive Office Building which reminds me of Hotel Du Ville in Paris.

The one and only - White House

Park in front of White Hosue

Good Times in New York City !!!
