The skies were gray, the water murky green in this early morning shot. There was so little color in this scene to begin with that I turned it into sepia. I like it better than the original. Which one do you like better?

Here’s the original, shot in color, not black & white. See what I mean?

I don’t know why I like this, but I do.

The Chart House restaurant on the marina has a built-in lighthouse. I don’t know whether it’s real or not.

Tropical storm Ernesto rolled into town yesterday. It started raining in the morning, and by early afternoon the Potomac River was overflowing. This is the foot of King Street. Shops and restaurants are only steps behind me. Hopefully the water won’t creep much further than this.

Rowing Down the Potomac

A rowing team doing an early morning practice run near the marina. In the small outboard motorboat the team coach is giving instructions with a loudspeaker. That’s what initially caught my attention.
