Dry cleaner on the corner of Georgia and Rittenhouse: They Martinize!
Yesterday's 2.3 mile walk took me along Georgia Avenue and past a number of signs on shops and in bus shelters. Here are just two of the 24 pictures I took before my batteries died, dang it all! I also had my first run in with the po-po (police), as the kids around here call them. I was taking pictures outside the offices for the Metropolitan Police Department's District 4 offices, when an officer came out and informed me that taking pictures of MPD facilities was a security concern and prohibited. Even though I was standing on a public sidewalk, I was gently admonished to refrain from any future picture taking.
My point in taking the picture of the MPD-4D was to capture the radio/dispatch tower behind the building. When I first moved to my neighborhood, I hated that thing. I thought it was ugly and an eyesore. Over time, though, it's grown on me and I'm always looking for new ways to capture it. This photo is just one more perspective on what I now deem a cool tower and one of my favorite landmarks to look for on the D.C. horizon. To see other instances of this tower, go here, here, here, here, and here.
To see a few more of the signs I snapped yesterday, as well as one or two other things that caught my eye, visit Standing Room Only.
