I was joking with my sister as we wrapped up the trip to DC that I was going home with new library goals, after having seen Jefferson’s library in the Library of Congress, and Julia Child’s kitchen at the Smithsonian. I could have spent hours in Jefferson’s library just taking notes of titles. You couldn’t touch the books, they were sandwiched in glass displays (they also didn’t photograph well, unfortunately) but you could read the titles in some cases. The man was diverse in his interests, which I already knew, and there were books there I wouldn’t mind reading… I’ll bet some are on Project Gutenberg.
I didn’t have long with Julia Child’s kitchen. Just enough time to snap a few shots knowing that later I could look at those for ideas.
