Wikipedia Description: Edgewood (Washington, D.C.)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Edgewood is a neighborhood in Northeast Washington, D.C. Edgewood is bounded by Monroe Street NE to the north, Rhode Island Avenue NE to the south, Glenwood Cemetery to the west, and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority's Red Line train tracks to the east. The eastern boundary originates with the establishment of the former Metropolitan Branch of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in 1873, creating the physical barrier which today separates Edgewood from Brookland to the east. Edgewood is in Ward 5.

2002 photos: Image quality isn't going to be very good for the first half of this year because these are scans of prints.
Equipment this year: I took the plunge and bought my first digital camera. It was August 2002 and I bought an Epson PhotoPC 3100Z. While a nice camera, it had some quirks and bumping it would result in it being totally out of focus until you manually shut it down -- something which blurred almost every picture I took in New York City one day.
Trips this year: Two weeks out west, one week in New York, and one week down south.
This was the year I started the photo web site. It started to come together in August 2002, mostly as a way of allowing me to keep track of the pictures I was taking. It took awhile to add some basic bells and whistles (logging didn't get added until November) but it's been pretty much like it started out since then. Archaic but working, and free!
