Two Things Challenge: Corner / Stone
This week's 2 Things Challenge was Corner / Stone. My original plan was to go to Capitol Hill and take a picture of the cornerstone on the U.S. Capitol, which was laid by George Washington and his Scottish Rite Masonic brothers in 1789. Alas, other commitments and ailments kept me at home. Instead, I give you these: the Golden Corner Market at Kennedy Street and Colorado Avenue NW. I've never been inside myself, but it's a tiny little retail/restaurant strip typical of urban settings and quickly becoming extinct.
This second photo is of Sligo Creek in Maryland, which is where I went this morning for a walk. I'm not sure what the content is in the stones that fill this creek (I should have paid better attention in that geology class I took in college), but I thought the setting was pretty.
