The calendar said December 1st, the thermometer said almost 70 degrees, the sun was shining and some interesting clouds were moving across the sky. Time for a quick run into the city for an unplanned photo shoot. My weather app showed a storm was coming in from the west so it would be a quick trip. With nothing specific in mind, I put my fate in the hands of the parking gods. They apparently were in a generous mood and provided a vacant spot on Constitution Avenue directly across the street from the National Archives. Not bad. Here are a few images from the next 45 minutes. When I saw the storm clouds moving in from the West (last Image), it was time to go.
