I was looking for a photo for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge (vibrant colours) …. when I came across this one that also fits Cee’s Odd Ball Photo challenge: It’s not every day you see a traffic light peering out like a periscope from a head-dress:……
For many years, the Caribbean Carnival Parade wound down Georgia Avenue in Washington DC one Saturday in June. It wasn’t just the costumes that were vibrant but also the atmosphere. It was one big party with paraders celebrating the Caribbean culture while the crowd on the sidelines swayed to the beat of steel drums, calypso & reggae. Sadly, the parade is here no more – it moved to Baltimore.
Shots from Days 323 – 332 …. Will she catch up before the end of the year! I should be writing Christmas cards instead of diddling around on the internet!
323 – this was our Japanese Maple at the height of its colour. We then had a couple of horribly windy days which basically stripped the tree bare!
324 But do they buy used churches?? I really like this old church building which adjoins an out-of- business pawn shop but which has very new looking razor wire on the roof! (there’s one strand just visible on the right of this photo).
325 – the most photographed subject throughout this project – the tunnel on Rock Creek Parkway which runs under the National Zoo:
326 – the sky was gloriously beautiful this day – you’d never guess I had a coat and scarf on!
327 Another of my metro station billboards – this one popped up just before Thanksgiving. I hope it is photo-shopped on his head!
328 – This made me laugh. We have a door bell at our front door which no one ever rings, (or if they do ring it, they wait one second and then start pounding on the door). We obviously need a big sign like this saying PUSH.
329 Voting Rights for DC… a givemeavote.org poster in my neighbourhood:
330 Colourful garden sculpture – I love that it is tied to the fence by a chain around its neck!
331 This is one of my favourite houses in my neighbourhood – I love the quaintness of it, the various angles and the metal almost medi-evil style roof turret. And, then there is the gorgeous garden!
332 Whenever I walk past this place I get a little giggle out of the half street number. On the weekends this place is packed so they must be doing something right!
