Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry in DC

For this week’s Photo Challenge (Geometry) as hosted by The Daily Post at WordPress, I thought of sharing a few of our photographs from Washington DC. The clean lines and the curves in the pictures all served to remind me of geometrical patterns and figures.

Geometry in Washington DC

It is sometimes called the City of Magnificent Distances, but it might with greater propriety be termed the City of Magnificent Intentions…. Spacious avenues, that begin in nothing, and lead nowhere; streets, mile-long, that only want houses, roads, and inhabitants; public buildings that need but a public to be complete; and ornaments of great thoroughfares, which only lack great thoroughfares to ornament–are its leading features.
 - Charles Dickens

All is politics in this capital. – Thomas Jefferson

Washington is a city of Southern efficiency and Northern charm. 
- John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Washington isn’t a city, it’s an abstraction.
- Dylan Thomas
