Rainy reflections on a Monday night...
Last night, I was out in the States helping my sister with a project. On the way home, I had a call on my cell phone. Not wanting to drive on rain-slick roads in a car that probably needs a new rack of wheels, I pulled into the parking lot of IHOP* on Rte. 50 in Arlington to take the call. It was everything I could do to not go in and order a plate of pumpkin pancakes. Instead, I sat in the car and chatted. In the end, it was probably better for my waistline! This was the view out of my passenger-side window.
Eight miles later, I pulled into West Potomac Park and snapped this picture of the Washington Monument and the city-lit sky. There's not as much reflection going on in this one, obviously. I just liked the light. After that, I put the camera away and safely drove home!**
* International House of Pancakes, for those of you living outside the U.S. It's an 24/7 breakfast franchise.
** For those of you who worry about me driving and shooting, I'm just sayin'.
