Better know the District, part 4

This is my final week in Washington, D.C. — for now! — so it’s time for the fourth and last installment of my “Better know the District” posts. I haven’t had as much time to wander around the city lately, but I didn’t have to look far to find photos worth taking:

Stanton Park, Northeast D.C.

Georgetown after a rainstorm, where petals from the trees stuck everywhere like snow.

I just liked the colors and textures here. From uneven brick sidewalks to outdated police callboxes, D.C. streets are full of beautiful, worn-down things.

Georgetown.

The Hill Center, near Eastern Market, Southeast D.C.

Tree branches, heavy with blossoms, hang over Capitol Hill sidewalks.

The Jefferson Memorial.

Houseboats and boats at the Southwest Waterfront — I had come early for the Cherry Blossom Festival fireworks after dark.

I’m going to miss this place.
