Last day of winter

The last day of winter was a rainy one here in Maryland - not with flooding like in the midwest, but steady all day rain. The lawn man did his thing yesterday, so we should have lots of green grass in a few days. The bulbs around the mailbox are starting to show color.
And the raindrops make a nice adornment to the weeping maple by the deck.

Construction in Arlington

I worked in the Balston area of Arlington, VA from 1996 to October 2007. This view is to the east with the Washington monument in the distance. For most of these 11 years there were about a dozen construction cranes visible to the east and southeast. In 2005, several of the these building were recently completed and not fully occupied.

On the corner of N. Glebe Rd and N. Fairfax Dr., a smaller building was demolished and a new building went up. As they were finishing the hole for the foundation, I decided to start photographing the construction.

The street where we live 2007

Looking down the street where we live throughout 2007.

Old house by the creek

This small, old house is next to Carroll Creek on the east side of town. It is under going renovation, but the windows are interesting.
