GEORGE BUSH PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY


College Station TX

February 2008

Here are a few images from in the museum and on the grounds. While I didn't get much help photographically from the dim lighting inside, I was able to get a few decent images of selected contents. Unfortunately, I had left my zoom lenses in the car far away, so I couldn't get a decent shot of a mating pair of crested caracaras that appeared overhead, literally out of the blue, while I was sitting on a park bench talking to Elke. So for nature photos there, you'll have to settle instead for a softshell turtle... :-)
