The following slideshow is composed of photos I took at the U.S. National Arboretum, in Washington, DC, in 2002. If you haven't visited, do so! You will be amazed that such natural beauty exists within the confines of an urban city.

In 1984, while on my lunch hour walk, I caught these two young, gifted musicians holding forth a symphony of two on the corner of 19th Street and M Street, NW, in Washington, DC. They were very, very good and demonstrated a promising career in music. I sometimes wonder what became of them, and if they realized their dreams, whether in music, or some other labor of love.

I took this picture in 1975, on a small playground on 16th street, in northwest Washington, DC. I consider it one of my most fondest, and it always brings a smile to my face whenever I look at it. It clearly shows that character development starts early in children.
