DC, all 2023 long

Hi, SSP. Long time no post. Here are some random photos from DC and environs from my 2023 folder. Enjoy!
















































































































































Yes, this is a bald eagle, randomly on the street in front of my house.

Nice pictures!

Where is the location of that little neighborhood underneath the elevated road and by the bridge? It's the third picture after the Statue of Liberty laying down on the grass.

Beautiful photos. I love the focus on public transportation.

It’s Georgetown, just west of the Whitehurst Freeway. Key Bridge is beyond.

Quite pleasant.

Do you even eat cupcakes? They don't sell them at The Cheesecake Factory.

I like the way you take pictures. You're still better than I am at it.

I love the trees and contemprary architecture in your photos.
The old stuff is not as impressive as what we've got here, but you know about that.

Nice effort on public transportation too. You guys are gradually getting better at it.

That's very kind, mousquet. Wanna trade cities?

ColDay, I don't even know who you are anymore. The Saturn is gone and you don't eat at The Cheesecake Factory? Next you'll be trying to convince me you're a blonde girl.

We'll keep Paris's central districts over here, if you don't mind.
I just would like things like this to grow over here as well.



This looks nice. And apartments must be comfy in there. On average, it's a better standard than what they've been building in Paris these days.
Well, at least in my opinion.

That's a really great building, agreed. Brand new. I'm not sure it's open yet.

Arlington and Alexandria are getting quite a few high quality developments lately. Enjoy seeing them here.
