Photo Friday: The Lot at the Liz Under Construction & 40 Years of Compassion, Washington, DC USA

This week’s photograph was taken on historic 14th Street Northwest, in Washington, DC, USA (of course). It’s this historic because this is what the building looked like in 1942: There’s a lot of history between 1942 and 2018, including the destruction of this street following the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., another destruction following …

Being #carfreeDC along with 38% of the other households in Washington, DC, and the city with the 3rd highest percentage of people who bike to work has its advantages. Isn’t Washington, DC beautiful? Speaking of the title, I am getting ready to do something I’ve never done before, which is post some of my personal …

Photo Saturday: Holocaust Memorial Day - It's not what you do, it's what you tolerate

Thanks for publishing my photo, in Making room for Millennial families - D.C. Policy Center

Thanks for using my photograph, @DCPolicyCenter, in this excellent analysis of Washington, DC’s growth into a “normal” city. It’s also happily a not-normal city in that it’s the place where the future is born every day 🙂 . The photograph is of one of the types of structures alluded to in the analysis: Most new …

Photo Friday: Before there was the WELL Building Standard, there was Montgomery Meigs' Pension Building (now the National Building Museum)

This week’s photograph was taken at the former Pension building, now the National Building Museum, in Washington, DC USA. Because this year commemorates 50 years since #dc1968 (@dc1968project), institutions all over Washington are providing historical context and other programming (which is deeply distracting to history geeks everywhere). The building was designed for health, way before …

Photo Friday: Photos of Photos of LBJ, Bobby Kennedy, and a world upside down in 1968 and 1972, Washington, DC USA

It’s an amazing opportunity to touch (with gloves) the actual contact sheets and photographs documenting the destruction and delayed/denied renaissance of Washington, DC in 1968 as captured by the photographers of US News and World Report. The entire collection is housed at the Library of Congress (@LibraryCongress) and my visit was a follow-up from what …
