Specific picture descriptions: Photos above with "i" icons next to the bracketed sequence numbers (e.g. " ") are described as follows:
WCCVW_030410_14.JPG: In the distance is the old Washington Convention Center which will be torn down to make room for... well, something.
WCCVW_030410_18.JPG: No clue. I'm thinking maybe it's a church.
WCCVW_030410_27.JPG: The tall spire is apparently going to be the base of a new Washington Convention Center sign. The building on the other side of the street is in the center of Mount Vernon Square. It's called the Beaux-Arts Carnegie Library. Andrew Carnegie built a slew of them across the country at the turn of the century, this one being from 1902. Later, it was restored by the University of the District of Columbia. Now it's being turned into the City Museum of Washington, DC. Mount Vernon Square, by the way, was the scene of a riot in 1857 when the Know-Nothing party (an anti-foreign, anti-Catholic right-wing group that would probably feel comfortable in this day and age) brought out a loaded cannon during a fight at a polling place. Marines were called in and they killed six people.
Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.

2003 photos: Equipment this year: I decided my Epson digital camera wasn't quite enough for what I wanted. Since I already had Compact Flash chips for it, I had to find another camera which used CF chips. That brought me to buy the Fujifilm S602 Zoom in March 2003. A great digital camera, I used it exclusively for an entire year.
Trips this year: Three-week trip this year out west, mostly in Utah.
Number of photos taken this year: 68,000.
