I’ve discovered I’m a learner visual spatial
It means I need pictures to understand information. So when

A favorite or inspiring piece of art (could be a statue, a painting, a musical composition, even performance art)
The first thing I thought was color
And during spring and summer in Washington, DC, color is everywhere!
The sharp white lines of the Jefferson Monument against the bright blue sky was magnificent.
Ahoy! Ducks away!
Mason District Park
I liked this picture because of the brilliant blue of the water mixed with the reflections of the green trees. Then there’s that lone duck sailing across the middle of the pond.
Green, green everywhere
After sitting through the dull browns of winter, I still look at the green our trees and go “Wow!”
And, of course, the flowers that are everywhere. I love the striking purple of these.

Flowers in Washington, DC
One of the things I like about spring in Washington, DC, is the explosion of color. Winter makes the city brown and barren, and then first signs of buds appear as spring approaches. The cherry blossoms make their entrance, and then, within two weeks, the whole place turns colorful. Tulips bloom right on the heels of the cherry blossoms and are just as spectacular with their vibrant colors. Some photos for your viewing pleasure!
These were in full sunlight and blowing in the wind. It was amazing how the camera instantly stopped their movement.
Checking out the overhead shot of the yellow tulips. I call this color “Irwin Allen Yellow.” Can you guess why?
I have a new camera, so I was playing with getting a shot straight down of the inside of this red tulip.
Purple and yellow! Oh, my!
