National Arboretum

This weekend (and today) it hasn't felt like spring outdoors. So on Sunday I went (along with a couple other friends) indoors to one of Washington DC's largest greenhouses, the U.S. Arboretum. And there were no shortage of flowers to photograph!

Cold Spring Day @ US Capitol

Temperatures were in the mid 40's today... and in some places in the DC area it snowed overnight. But it still looked like spring at the Capitol. Today I visited the US Arboretum and Capitol. Check back tomorrow night for photos from the Arboretum. These magnolia trees are gifts from China and Japan!

Germantown Water Tower Controversy

Today I visited this unique water tower located in Germantown (Maryland) on the campus of Montgomery College. The water tank has been in the news the past couple of weeks because of an upcoming face lift. This week the Washington Suburban Sanity Commission will decide if the 33 year old water tower will keep it's global painting or maybe become a large baseball. Stay tuned....

Artsy Photos from Philadephia

This is what I believe to be a abandoned bowl of gumbo in front of life like chess statue across from city hall in downtown Philadelphia.

Two different views of statue to famed former Philadelphia Police Commissioner and Mayor Frank Rizzo.
