I didn’t really feel like dealing with record-breaking Metro crowds after work today, so I braved the heat and walked home, pausing briefly at a farmer’s market in Penn Quarter to grab some cherries and a bouquet of summer flowers for Amy. Two snapshots and a short video from along the way:
At top left, crepuscular rays from the sun shining through clouds over Pennsylvania Ave NW. At top right, CCNV, the largest homeless shelter in DC. Below that, the scene from Lafayette Park looking across Penn Ave towards the White House, with the usual spectacle of tourists and protestors.
