George Washington


George Washington was born on this day in 1732.
His painting by Gilbert Stuart hangs in the Senate chamber of Hartford's Old State House.

(I couldn't think of any Washington relationships in southwest Florida.)

Well, there's a town named 'George' in Washington state but that's a bit far away from Florida. This is a brilliant shot.

great shot. Washington is popular also even in the Philippines and known most because of the dollar bill :)

You're doing a lot better than I am. I didn't remember this was the gentleman's birthday. Very nicely-composed photo!

Re your comment about the car: When I saw it, I thought immediately of you, and wondered what you were doing up here in central Florida. :)

Terrific framing on this shot, Jack. I'm inclined to want to visit that state house.
