Random Photos from a Gorgeous Day / Photo Gallery
May 26, 2013
I took more than 1,000 photos on this Memorial Day Sunday, not only because I hadn't been out to a few places for a while but because the weather was just so darn stunning. There's twoother galleries from this day, but these are a few other shots worth posting from my wanderings. More information here.
I like leafy greenery as much as the next person, but perhaps it's time to realize that there might be a few too many trees on the west side of the Lumber Shed. (link)
Unlike 39,000 other people, I didn't make it into the ballpark, but I still figured it was time to capture the new backing on the scoreboard, with the celebration from Jayson Werth's Game 4 walkoff homer in the 2012 playoffs. (link)
Restricted? Not anymore! My first venture inside the fences at the old National Geospatial Intelligence Agency building at 1st and M, since the parking lot is now open during Nats games. (link)
Not a building that will be much lamented when it goes, whenever that may be. The holes punched in the walls are for some ongoing environmental remediation. (link)
This image is a good illustration of why it became untenable to run a spook-filled super-secure facility guarded by gun-toting patrolmen in this particular location. (link)
Too bad that the workers in the super-secure building left before a shiny Gordon Biersch opened up across the street. (link)
It's not always easy to get photos from ground level of big holes being dug--this is the best I could do at the Park Chelsea. (link)
The Park Chelsea crane east of New Jersey Avenue, against an impossibly blue sky. (link)
