Day 3 of the inspection of the damage caused by last month's 5.8 earthquake at the Washington Monument. It's become quite an attraction both for locals and tourists. I visited mid-day Thursday, with a lot of clouds in the sky, didn't make for the best photographs.
This woman didn't see the blocked off area and had to be escorted away from the Monument.

Saturday when I attended the (e) merge Art Fair at the Capitol Skyline Hotel, I parked on a street nearby where there was this abandoned church for sale. Not sure what the asking price is, but it's not everyday you see a church for sale?
Very hard to explain what happened during this unique performance art at the (e) merge Art Fair in Southwest Washington D.C. I believe it will be running again today between 12-7 pm so if you live in the area, you may want to go to check out.
The (e)merge Art Fair is taking place this weekend at the Capitol Skyline Hotel in Southwest D.C. Artists and galleries from around the world are displaying their work in the hotel's parking garage, rooms, and next to the hotel pool.
this work really impressed me. the artist is TMINK, The Me Nobody Knows, a mix media artist from New York.
This was in one of the hotel rooms/gallery. Most of the hotel rooms were samplings of art work from galleries both here in the US and aboard. For more info on the festival check out their web site: http://www.emergeartfair.com/
Check back tomorrow, I will post photos from the performance artist that took place next to the hotel's pool.
