Hi David,

I'm from he Northern VA area...I've been meaning to stop by for a look at this exhibit but couldn;t make it this past weekend; very much looking forward to seeing it.

You have some absolutely wonderful images on your gallery of this whole VA.DC.MD area. Lucky I "stumbled" across your Blog!

You may find some items of interest on my own Blog (with obvious overlaps in taste and what draws our eye...Sugimoto, for example).
