Two Things Challenge: Hard / Soft
This week's Two Things Challenge is Hard / Soft. Coming up with something for hard wasn't too difficult. Any number of the marble and granite buildings in this city would have worked, but I wanted to do something out of the ordinary. So, I went downtown the other evening, after taking pictures at the airport, and snapped this photo of the Hard Rock Cafe. This chain is located next door to Ford's Theater, where President Lincoln was shot on April 14, 1865. Here's a sad anecdote: I've actually had guests with teenagers who get upset if their parents don't take them to the cafe, but they couldn't care less about seeing Ford's Theater.
Soft was a little tougher. I was getting desperate and was going to post a picture of the cat, but I did that a few weeks ago. Instead, I decided to go with clouds. They're fluffy and soft, right? And there you have it!
