Two Things Challenge: Black / White
This week's Two Things Challenge was Black / White. I really had a hard time choosing which pictures to use for this challenge. In the end I settled on one people watching/structural architecture combination, a nature photo, and a slice of urban decay. I had a number of others I wanted to use, but that would have been going overboard. However, in the next week or so, I'll post one or two of the other pictures from which I had to choose.
The first photo (above) is the fare gate level and train platform at the Farragut North Metro station on the Red Line (Glenmont to Shady Grove.)
This second shot is one I grabbed a few mornings ago on my walk. The sun had just come up and caught this morning glory at the right angle, making it almost transparent.
Finally, on a different walk a few days ago, I wandered along 3rd Street NW between Kennedy Street and Missouri Avenue and stumbled on this sign in the window of what was once a Chinese carry-out place. The place is now vacant except for a note on the door announcing the store's closure due to an illness in the family, a few chairs, and lots of dust. Oh, and this sign, of course!
To see the other participants in this week's challenge, go here.
