Description of Pictures: A History of the Navy Yard from the Navy’s Top Historian: Few people today are aware of how great a role the Washington Navy Yard has played in the life and development of Capitol Hill. The walled facility at the foot of 8th Street was once the biggest builder of Navy ships in the country, and then became the biggest manufacturer of munitions. For some 150 years it was our neighborhood’s largest employer and a much more significant driver of the community’s growth than Congress and the Capitol. At the Overbeck History Lecture, the U.S. Naval Historical Center’s lead historian, Dr. Edward J. Marolda, presented an illustrated history of the Navy Yard and its impact on the community. Dr. Marolda is the author of The Washington Navy Yard: An Illustrated History and a number of other historical works.

MAROLD_060411_098.JPG: Leon Edward Panetta is a former White House Chief of Staff to Bill Clinton, a former member of the United States House of Representatives, and the founder and director of the Panetta Institute. Originally a Republican, he switched to the Democratic Party in 1971, as he felt the Republican Party was moving away from the center and was working against civil rights legislation. In 1976 he was elected in California to the U.S. Congress for his first of nine terms. During his time in Congress, his work concentrated mostly on budget issues, civil rights, education, health, and environmental issues, particularly preventing oil drilling off the California coast. In 1993, Clinton chose him to be Director of the United States Office of Management and Budget. He is credited with developing the budget package which would eventually result in the balanced budget of 1998. On July 17, 1994, he was appointed White House Chief of Staff by Clinton, a position he held until January 20, 1997.
Description of Subject Matter: In keeping with our goal of building a stronger, kinder, more thoughtful community, the Capitol Hill Community Foundation has established the Ruth Ann Overbeck Capitol Hill History Project in order to give our neighborhood a better knowledge of its past and a deeper understanding of the everyday lives of its citizens.
The Project collects oral histories and other relevant materials and information from longtime Capitol Hill residents and former residents, to create a permanent, accessible, ongoing record of the people and events that have shaped our community. As a first priority, the collection effort is focusing on elderly residents whose stories may soon be lost, but its ultimate goal is a many-voiced narrative from across the generations, representing all walks of life and all races and backgrounds, that will illustrate the richly inter-connected life of our neighborhood over time.

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.

2006 photos: Equipment this year: I was using all six Fuji cameras at various times -- an S602Zoom, two S7000s,a S5200, an S9000, and an S9100. The majority of pictures this year were taken with the S9000. I have to say, the S7000s was the best camera I've used up to this point..
Trips this year: Florida (two separate trips including Lotusphere and taking care of mom), three weeks out west (including Yellowstone), Williamsburg, San Diego (comic book convention), and Georgia.
Number of photos taken this year: 183,000.
