Specific picture descriptions: Photos above with "i" icons next to the bracketed sequence numbers (e.g. " ") are described as follows:
EATON_210121_26.JPG: The Eaton DC hotel which is where some of the 2020 Women's March planning events were held. We also had some events for the Environmental Film Festival there. The 209-room Eaton DC opened in November 2018 as “the world’s first activist hotel.” The hotel’s owner Katherine Lo, is the daughter of Lo Ka Shui, the billionaire owner of Great Eagle Holdings, the umbrella company for Langham Hotels. Great Eagle Holdings is a Hong Kong real estate company. It switched its registration to Bermuda in 1990, perhaps as a way of avoiding the expected Chinese take over of Hong Kong.
The hotel always features progressive artwork on the 12th and K side of the building. I hadn't seen this one before. "Let Love Quiet Fear", with a credit to ForFreedoms. For Freedoms' website ( https://forfreedoms.org/ ) says "For Freedoms is an artist-led organization that models and increases creative civic engagement, discourse and direct action. We work with artists and organizations to center the voices of artists in public discourse, expand what participation in a democracy looks like, and reshape conversations about politics."

EATON_210822_12.JPG: Everyone Deserves a Safe DC!
That's why we require our guests to wear their masks indoors. Vaccine disparities in Washington DC are perpetuating the impact COVID-19 has had on our marginalized neighbors. Wearing our masks indoors will continue to slow the spread, and getting vaccines for each of our community members will save lives.

2021 photos: This year was filled with hope. Yes, the COVID-19 pandemic is still with us but it was hoped that restoring sanity to the White House. the rapid vaccine role-out, and a government that finally cared would put things back to normal again. But the force was strong in the evil anti-vaxxer movement and the virus variants made quick use of that so we're still dealing with this crap. Plus the continued impact of the Trump putsch attempt... Sigh.
Trips this year:
after getting fully vaccinated, I made a trip down to Asheville, NC in May to visit my dad and his wife Dixie and returned again in early October,
in mid-July, I made a quick trip up to Stockbridge, MA to see the Norman Rockwell Museum again as well as Daniel Chester French's place @ Chesterwood.
Number of photos taken this year: about 283,000, slightly up from 2020 but still really low.
