A bird of a different feather
I've had neither the energy nor inspiration for blogging the past couple of weeks. It happens. So to go completely outside the box, here are some photos I took yesterday. I felt like crap in the morning and called in sick, but as I was trying to sleep in some large low-flying aircraft kept circling over my neighborhood for at least an hour. I looked out the window and this is what I saw. This is the kind of thing that reminds me that Washington, DC isn't like other cities!
I had no clue what this thing was until I saw a flurry of activity on Twitter and somebody identified it as a V-22 Osprey. I've seen many different kinds of military aircraft flying over the District, but this was a first for me. There were also several large military helicopters flying over, which usually means the President is on the move. Since I was awake anyway, I grabbed my camera and was able to get a few decent shots from my roof deck, including one that also captured a jet flying far overhead (which I didn't even notice until I downloaded the photos from my camera).
