Georgetown from the Potomac River [#27]

July 16 was the anniversary of the Residence Act, signed by President Washington in 1790. The document determined the capital to be located along the Potomac River, between the Eastern Branch (the Anacostia River) and the Connogochegue (near Williamsport and Hagerstown, Maryland). Ever since then, the Potomac has witnessed the transformation of the city like a friendly giant.

In this minimalist image, rowboats race on a warm summer sunset with Georgetown in the background.
