Couple days before New Years eve this place was really calm and clean, away from the Bourbon street, washed off by some rain. I like to take photos during the rain or immediately after, even so it is very hard to take it during the rain, but reflections and all the sparkles are worth every effort.
The last two weekends we were power washing outside walls of our house. So much work, get really wet and I’m whooped by the end of each day. Most of it is done. But now we’ll need to do some painting. Lots of it. The joys of owning a house.
This was taken on one of the side roads from the Miami to the Marco Island. We tried to find some drives through the everglades away from the main highways. Didn’t see much of the wildlife, some birds here and there, mostly empty water pools of still water with perfect reflections.
I have been to DuPont Circle a few times, but never spend any time there, always on the go. This time I decided to go there around sunset and check it out. I took a few photos from each side, trying to find an interesting view. There is so much going on around, people walking in every direction, runners speed by, some folks trying to hand out some kind of little propaganda pieces of paper, which seems like no body wants to take. Friends and couples, and what seems like folks on a date all over the place. A few homeless linger around. Even occasional helicopters appear and disappear in matter of a few seconds.
Life is busy at DuPont Circle!
Today is the last Friday of September, so I decided to put two photos instead of one. Instead just call it a draw bridge, we can actually see it sort of in action. It is down. Then it is up. Not that it provides any clues of where it is.
Boy oh boy, I’m so glad I was not one of those folks seating in those cars. Never ever ending commute and the traffic light behind me was only able to accommodate 4-5 cars on each green. As it was fully packed with cars all the way North Capitol Blvd. They should be home by now. Hate bumper to bumper commute.
I was walking that day and enjoyed being carless for a moment.
