Cross-Country Connections: B&W

Cross-Country Connections is a Biodork weekly blog entry dedicated to telling stories in pictures of three family members – me, my sister and Mom – living in very different locations across the country. Every week we choose a different theme and then take or contribute a personal photo that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Black and White.

From me in Minneapolis, Minnesota:

Doll-sized dress form. Parisian, apparently.

From Erin in Takoma Park, Maryland:

I’ve taken pictures of the Capitol everday since I see it during my commute to work, this one, taken on my very first day in town is still the best! P.S. does anyone know why we spell the “Capitol” building wrong?

From Mom in Carbondale, Illinois: 


Don in his Hopalong Cassidy outfit – way back in the day.

    That’s some good black and white right there. (Makes me want to find a case of TRI X Pan.)

    Capitol, because it isn’t a capital. They are different creatures. A capitol is usually a building (frequently legislature). See Capitoline.

    Capitol is -ol because it derives from the Capitoline Hill, one of the seven hills of ancient Rome. Why the Capitoline Hill was named what it was I have no idea. But it was called that very early on in Roman history, and was the site of the earliest known citadel (a public/government structure) in Rome.

    Capital is derived from caput (latin for head), I think via a Romantic language. I don’t know if caput and Capitoline have a common word origin. Seems like they probably would if you went back far enough but that may predate written records.
