Rain barrels and the Martian in the backyard. The rain needs to stop.Sunset on L Street NW.Today's view has been brought to you by the National Audubon Society, by way of Baker & McKenzie, who hosted the Audubon event in their amazing top floor conference room.Can't get enough of Carderock Springs MD. Returned today for exterior shots. Badly misjudged the sun position on the shots the client wanted. Not sun dappled through thick foliage. Full on harsh shadow. So I'll go back for those later today when the sun is lower on the horizon. Found this little gem point of view while I was there. #carderock #mcm midcentury #midcenturymodern #midcenturyarchitecture #marylandmodernStand clear of the closing doors.Stand clear of the closing doors.Stand clear of the closing doors.Sunset.
