I snapped this shot of a Park Police horse (a paint!) while sitting at a red light on the way to the get my car inspected on Friday. I loved the horse's on-the-job expression in contrast with the grim Cherry trees (still on winter mode) and the sad, empty paddle boats bobbing in the Tidal Basin (no hoards of tourists or sunny days yet). That's the Jefferson Memorial across the water (it's man-made body of water that protects the National Mall from potential flooding of the Potomac River). Is it April yet?
