Walking on this old street, you almost can feel the history from every stone you step on.
Alexandria, this historical old town was founded in 1749. It is a town well known for it’s 18th to 19th century architecture and award winning restaurants.
After several hours walked around in DC this afternoon, we came back to Alexandria and looking for a place to have dinner tonight. This photo was taken at Prince Street, Alexandria.
How cute he is!

Victoria-Transvaal Diamond Necklace – The crazy looking pendant is the 68-carat, champagne colored Victoria-Transvaal diamond, which was discovered in South Africa in 1951.
Pictured in Smithsonian Gem and Mineral Collection.
How would you feel if you were wearing this piece of necklace? Would it be the similar feeling as if driving an ultra expensive car on the streets?
Detail of an Iridescent Sphenodiscus Ammonite Fossil. This photo was taken in the National Museum of Natural History.. one of the most popular museums in DC.
Hand held at low light, no flash. It’s one of a few clear photos I took in that museum.
Photoed this Sister in National Gallery of Art. This museum is one of my favorites, I could spend months there.
Alan made a good comment:”this picture is simple but says message”.. gosh.. wish I could describe my pictures as well as him… he should be my critic and editor, shouldn’t he?
We arrived Alexandria at early afternoon after picked up our friends from Dulles Airport. It is such a sunny day, as warm as if we were still in Florida.
Pictured this theme at a street nearby our hotel in Alexandria.
Pictured this colorful Gouldian Finch at the nursing home where Alan’s father is staying. He was captived along with several others in a carefully decorated birdcage. The bird was in a sad mood.
He was missing his freedom.
When I was watching at him, I suddenly realized, we are also in an invisible birdcage which either was created by ourselves or by the others. Carrier; relationships; kids; pets; hobbies; money and desires..etc, we have been all captived in this or that kind of invisible birdcage, we could never have the freedom, till we could mentally or physically abandon all those things in our lives.
Sketch design of my sister in law’s cat. Alan and I have been staying at their home in Warrenton, VA since Friday. Tomorrow, we are going to meet our friends Manzhi and her families in DC and we will have a 3 days vacation together.
