Early Morning at the Marina

January 17, 2007


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?

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

Ernesto Comes to Visit

September 2, 2006


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.
