Hanging out with Wil the Thrill, who has a record player and who likes Band of Horses. Turning out to be a pretty cool cat, that kid.Airstream Rally campfire at Marietta House Museum in Glenn Dale MD. Good food, good conversation, good times. Great folks. #WBCCI #wdcu #airstream #vintageairstreamChecking on the kids today at the 2015 DC Design House. And restocking my cards.Good morning, whirled. #whibbleRAVE. Pop-ups don't have to disrupt the fabric of a row of houses. This one certainly is getting as much additional square feet as the other one (see previous post), but with just a little bit of thought and consideration for both the history of the block and the neighbors who call it home, the addition fits in much better. Well, it will fit in better once roofing material is installed... #popup #stopthepop #washingtondc #developmentRANT. This piece of garbage addition is deeply offensive to the quiet, elegant row of houses, and an insult to the neighbors who call this street home. And, so unnecessary. See next post for counterpoint. #popup #stopthepop #development #washingtondcWith a new shine by @cfdetailing, Lucy the 1964 Overlander is way too tempting for this photographer to stay away from. I'm going to be doing reflection photos all weekend. #airstream #overlander #wbcci #wdcu #airstreamrestoration #savetheairstreams #liveriveted @dcmdbGreat day for my favorite house in Mount Pleasant - blue sky with puffy white clouds, but not currently blown out with direct sunlight.
