A Walk Around The Lawn: Springtime 2015



We pick up this post at the end of the previous one, and continue with a walk around The Lawn in the spring of 2015. The lede photo is an afternoon shot of Pavillion X. Notice the sandstone tint to the columns and woodwork of Pavillion X, in contrast to the white columns at the end of the colonade on the left edge of the photo. Pavillion X was returned to the natural surfaces thought to have been present in Jefferson's day. It has a golden hue in the afternoon light. The last photo in this series provides another angle on Pavillion X. It's a modern day experiment to challenge our sensibilities. However, it would be hard to imagine The Lawn in toto without white colonades.

Gear Photos were shot with a Nikon Coolpix A.
