my d.c.: light
posted by soe 9:08 am

Hillary decided to launch a new weekly feature on her blog and I’ve decided it sounds so brilliant that I need to play along. It’s called “My D.C.” and offers a “a little tour of the things that make DC one of my favorite places.” It’ll appear each Friday.

For my first entry, I offer this shot:

Gas Lamps

One of the neat things about living in a city with a natural gas line is how many people use that source for their front walk and porch lights. This shot shows two such lamps in front of a home in the fancy neighborhood of Georgetown.

I look forward to sharing other sights from around town. Please feel free to play along by posting your own shots of where you live. (If you don’t have a blog, you can leave a link to a shot in my comments, if you’d like.)

(I’d like to incorporate more photography into the blog, but that demands forethought and planning, two traits I’m not known for. This meme seems like a manageable way to start out, though.)

I really like that picture. I always notice the gas lights in Fairfax City. I think they’re charming.

What a fantastic idea… I hope nobody minds if I jump in on this, too!

Wonder if I could do it with just Frederick and the surrounding areas? I do on occasion make it down to DC but I am in a location where I could do a far outer suburb. I want the weather to warm up a little so I can wander around Georgetown. I like the lights.
