After one very toxic week, it was time for some fresh air and a nighttime ride through downtown D.C. The sky was riveting today, with speckled, striated clouds blanketing the sky and reflecting the sun. The moonlight was no different. I noticed that Pennsylvania Avenue has been freshly paved, likely in anticipation of the millions of people who will be making their way to D.C. soon to welcome the 45th President of the United States. Here are a few views of the calm before the storm. View the rest of the album here, on Flickr.
