Concrete and Metal

No curves allowed.

It's just metal and concrete.
A utilitarian installation
hidden in the corner
of a much grander edifice
(the Anaheim Convention Center);
but the counterplay
of repeating straight lines,
light and shadow,
in neutral shades of gray,
is appealing.
It draws you in;
makes you want to explore.

Colorful Georgetown Townhouses

This cheerful little row of townhouses in Georgetown (DC)
might surprise the original residents.
Ya think?
These structures are probably at least 150 years old.
Who could have expected a Japanese Restaurant?
The one in the middle is the most eye-catching, though.
Painted with at least four colors;
and I cannot make out the name of the business;
what's up with the STOP sign?
One wonders.

Bucks at the Buffet

Local bucks line up
to take advantage of
the all-you-can-eat buffet
generously provided by nature.
All natural,
100% organic.
