Walking the Streets

Washington, D.C.

(of my neighborhood, that is!) I live on Capitol Hill, an old, mainly Victorian in style, district full of very unique houses. I simply love to walk around and admire the various kinds of architecture, often photographing it when I can. It's also a very friendly place, with neighbor knowing neighbor and complete strangers greeting you on the street. We have dog-friendly parks (and almost everybody here has a dog of one kind or another), a wonderful 19th century market, great little shops and restaurants and even a Metro stop for easy transportation. It's just blocks from the US Capitol (well, in my case, 11) and the National Mall with all its monuments and the Smithsonian Institution museums. In short, it's a wonderful place to live!

This was taken on East Capitol Street N.E., home of many spectacular mansions. (Wish I had one, but they're nice to admire anyway!)
