Thanks again, @DCPolicyCenter, for using my photos to illustrate this excellent piece on accommodating active transportation in our nation’s capital.

The piece mentions some of my favorite initiatives, including Vision Zero, and Complete Streets. These have made visible impacts on our lives here.

The first photo, by the way, was taken at the intersection of U Street, NW and 16th Street, NW, described by many (some?) as one of the most agonizing intersections to plan around, because of it’s unique structure. It’s also historic in that it housed a young Marion Barry’s Pride, Inc., in the 1960’s.

The second photograph was taken the evening before President Barack Obama’s inauguration in 2013. The third photo is a general, “watching the future being born” in Washington, DC. People sometimes forget that the future doesn’t happen by accident.
