And I'm getting better as a result.Cabin John, MD.They did it right when your photo of a building looks like a CGI rendering.

Something is brewing.Last few minutes of sunshine on Arkansas Avenue, looking across Piney Branch. Great time for a walk with the doglet. Bigdog decided to sit this one out. Her loss.My first shot today at an expanded bungalow in the AU Park neighborhood, before I switched the camera over to manual mode. F2.8 would NOT have done the trick. At least I had it set to record in RAW format. My first few exterior shots were in JPG and I had to reshoot them. Photographer's life. All good.Petworth.Ford Ranger. Farm Use.Ford Ranger.

See you in a couple days.I AM IN NEW MEXICO AND I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER.Haven't posted a picture of the backyard in a while. Adirondacks are pretty much gone, buried under ivy. I love it.One of my favorite houses. Next door to friend Harley Muse's property in Colonial Beach VA. Guess the person who lives there has gotten sick and is recovering in Florida. I'm moving in.Spent the day driving around Virginia wine country today, but not for wine tasting, unfortunately. It was a nice drive, though. Here: an abandoned house in Haymarket. #virginia #virginiawinecountry #haymarket #abandonedplacesIt's going to be home for a good portion of the month of May, and probably July and August, and possibly September too. #shasta #airflyte #airflyte58 #cannedham @nomadmotorlodge @nomadmmlodge #vintagetrailer #vintagetrailerrestorationSlightly off center.

Just a wisp of a thing. Could barely keep her feet on the ground. #teacuppoodleEver seen the inside of a vintage Coke machine? I hadn't until I bought this one in Amarillo TX as a decoration for Nomad Mountain Pizza in the Jemez Mountains outside of Santa Fe. Fun! #vintagecocacolamachine #cocacolacollectorFor this trip to New Mexico, I finally got a dog sitter for Sydney. What a huge relief for everyone. She's having a great time in Woodley Park, Nini is living the good life with us on the road, and I'm so much less stressed knowing she's in great hands. #pitbull #pibble #whippet #whibblemore
