Water's Up!

Happened by Fletcher's Cove again yesterday and saw where the water level in the canal was back up. And The Georgetown?

Well, let's just say now we know why it had to be taken out of service. :-)

The Georgetown

Sad end to a local attraction. The canal's water level has been lowered to facilitate restoration work in Georgetown between 30th Street and Thomas Jefferson.

You're Not Alone

While photographing Key Bridge and Rosslyn early one morning last week, I was quite surprised to suddenly look up and notice that a fellow photographer was doing the same.

Rosslyn skyline as seen early one recent weekday morning from Georgetown's Waterfront Park.

"Rosslyn is a heavily urbanized unincorporated area in Northern Virginia located in the northeastern corner of Arlington County, Virginia, north of Arlington National Cemetery and directly across the Potomac River from Georgetown and Foggy Bottom in Washington, D.C. Rosslyn encompasses the Arlington neighborhoods of North Rosslyn and Radnor/Ft. Myer Heights, and is located east of Courthouse, another urbanized Arlington neighborhood. Characterized as one of several 'urban villages' by the County, the numerous skyscrapers in the dense business section of Rosslyn make its appearance in some ways more urban than nearby Washington." ~ Wikipedia

Key Bridge

"The Francis Scott Key Bridge, more commonly known as the Key Bridge, is a six-lane reinforced concrete arch bridge conveying U.S. Route 29 (US 29) traffic across the Potomac River between the Rosslyn neighborhood of Arlington County, Virginia, and the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Completed in 1923, it is Washington's oldest surviving bridge across the Potomac River." ~ Wikipedia
