I was hiking today in Rock Creek Park and near the end of the outing I happened upon vine-covered stone buildings in the forest that, upon first sight, reminded me of ancient ruins I have seen in my visits to Mexico and parts of Central America. Upon closer examination I discovered they were not buildings at all but haphazardly stacked, large blocks of sandstone and marble. Many of the blocks had what must have once been exquisitely carved features, but are now severely weathered. I marked the location on my GPS and pulled out my camera and began photographing the "ruins."
Today was the final day of the three day shoot to capture the Piscataway Indian's 32nd Annual Powwow. The Powwow was amazing and the weather was amazingly hot!
