I think most people take the places they live for granted. You soon get used to any beauty or amenities your town has to offer and basically ignore them. As you probably know I live in Washington, DC. Like most people I live in my own little bubble, see the same things everyday and never really think about what I'm seeing. This is a beautiful city! a park near my neighborhood
I just want to urge everyone to take a fresh look at your surroundings - appreciate what you have! Here are some photos of Washington's 'off the beaten track ' places that I see pretty often but never really LOOK at.
I pass this fountain on my way home from work pretty often
this dock is about 1 block from my office!
