Walkin' man

Pictures taken while walkin' around. Most by me will be from my lunch hour strolls. Feel free to post your own.

I'm going to kick this off with some pictures I took a while ago, and liked for one reason or another. So I kept them on my phone.

I was trying my hand at taking candids for a while, but then decided to stop doing that in case somebody noticed and the situation became awkward.

That picture above was my favorite candid, but here are a couple more.

These guys were pulling cables through tunnels under the street.

A meter maid giving directions or something.

and this guy is a fixture around here. He often stands at this one street corner and just dances. A still picture doesn't do him justice. It looks like he's walking, but he's dancing.

This is the headquarters of the DC fire department. You might think it's a burn building for practice, but I'm pretty sure admin offices are in there. This was two weeks ago during an arctic vortex.

Most excellent.

It's raining today. But I still have a couple old ones.

No parking on Wednesday morning from March 15th through September 15th because that's when they sweep the streets. This was March 19th. Somebody forgot to pay attention to the season change.

There's a famous painting of Marylin Monroe on a building in DC. This painting of Liz was one I had never seen before. I like it.

Walkin' Man went for a walk today after all.

And I saw that dancer guy. A couple of kids on a field trip to Washington thought he was hysterical.

Then I wound up behind some (I think) French guys who were on their way to the Youth Hostel in DC. You always think of the backpacking youth hostel thing being done in Europe, but it happens here in the US too. The blue awning with the flags above is the youth hostel.

Right next to the youth hostel is a derelict building covered in a billboard. The building is rotten inside. Huge hole in the roof. But there are some nice architectural details on the face. And they recently put in some fake windows and doors to cover the plywood over those openings. It's a nice touch.

Edit; Oops. I should resize that one.

At first I thought this was a thread about a Burning Man type event for the over 40 set.

You may want to check out "Street Photography." It's got a long tradition. Here are links to a couple of famous photogs, but I highly recommend you get some books from the library and or find their work in museums and galleries. You are in good company. I really enjoy looking at the world through your POV.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Street_photography
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garry_Winogrand
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eug%C3%A8ne_Atget

One of the things that is cool about Atget's work is that in much of it the streets are deserted. I don't remember if he went out early in the day or if the lack of people was a function of extremely long exposure times.

Very enjoyable work, Glatt.

I look at a building like that I wonder about its 'bones.' I wonder what the layout of the interior is. I wonder if any of the original features are still there: the staircases and the flooring and the decorative moldings. I wonder if there are hidey-holes and I wonder who lived there in days past.

Beautiful in its dereliction, imo.

keep the photos coming glatt. I wish I could take good pictures.

Today I wanted to show you the local fire station. I like it. This old building surrounded by modern glass offices.

Lots of construction right now. I'm momentarily wishing I had a hard hat on.
