I took my camera out wandering around Washington, DC. It wasn’t until I was home and reviewing the photos that I realized a theme in so many of my photos: the color PINK. I am not sure why, but I was clearly drawn to that color…
Georgetown, Wisconsin Avenue
Pink brick and green ivy. I have taken pictures of this house on the corner during each season. I love to watch it change (the coloring, the foliage, the time of day) during different times of the year.
Do you like a good ghost story? What about tales of Blackbeard and pirate duels? Civil War battle reenactments? Live music?

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is designed for subjects that start with the letters S or T. I dug into my photo archives for this one… back to the afternoon in summer 2015 that I stumbled upon a group of swing dancers in Washington, DC’s historic Dupont Circle.

The beautiful Victorian rowhouses on the outward-facing part of the block housed upper-class Washingtonians, while the alley-facing buildings housed mixed-race working class professionals.

It was a flower-filled weekend. The Cherry Blossoms opened this weekend in Washington DC’s Tidal Basin. They also opened on the trees outside of my apartment.
This year, the trees were not their usual bright and fluffy pink, having lost half of the blossoms in a freeze/winter storm a few weeks ago. The trees, from afar, are a muted pink with splotches of brown, where the dead blossoms still hang. Continue reading “In Bloom”

The cherry blossoms were supposed to bloom today in Washington, DC. Needless to say, they did not. Instead we were greeted today by Winter Storm Stella.
