Here we are at the Potomac River in Old Alexandria.
The Vietnam War Memorial. I wanted to get the reflection of the wreath in the foreground, with the Washington Monument in the back. With a little help from Photoshop, it's not too bad.
Part of the World War II Memorial, which was huge and beautiful.
But my favorite booth at the market was the one that sold - incredibly- VINTAGE MAPS! Can you believe it? An entire booth that sold vintage maps, prints, stereoscope pictures and lantern slides! Needless to say, I was a bit excited. I was determined, however, to show some self-restraint. I did buy some very nice prints from a 1904 Encyclopedia Britannica, including this:
Obviously, rock hound that I am, I could not pass this one up!
I like the bright colors and designs on this one.
I think this might be my favorite. It's from an 1889 encyclopedia.
When I got home, I was shocked to realize that I had only bought 3 maps. What?!! What was I thinking? This self-restraint thing has gone entirely too far! Now I'll have to go back... just to get more maps, of course!
