Recognize anyone? If you recognize specific folks (or other stuff) and I haven't labeled them, please identify them for the world. Click the little pencil icon underneath the file name (just above the picture). Spammers need not apply.
Copyrights: All pictures were taken by amateur photographer Bruce Guthrie (me!) who retains copyright on them. Free for non-commercial use with attribution. See the [Creative Commons] definition of what this means. "Photos (c) Bruce Guthrie" is fine for attribution. (Commercial use folks including AI scrapers can of course contact me.) Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

A Tool for Stormwater Management
Stormwater runoff is rainwater that flows off impervious surfaces such as rooftops, and sidewalks. Stormwater runoff causes erosion in stream beds and displaces harmful pollutants such as oil, is capturing stormwater runoff that would otherwise run directly into the Anacostia River.
The Logan Circle Condominium cistern was completed in June of 2012. This 440 gallon cistern captures runoff from 550 square feet of rooftop. This water is used to irrigate the 850 square foot BayScape garden area. With an average annual precipitation of 42 inches, this District of Columbia BayScape and cistern will both capture around 27,270 gallons of stormwater each year. The garden is planted with native plants which tolerate both times of concentrated water and periods of drought. The plants also attract native wildlife such as butterflies and birds.
• Rain collected from the roof. Flows into the cistern
• Water captured by the cistern provides a source of chemically untreated water to be used for the garden or other uses
• This cistern holds onto rainwater which decreases, runoff, resulting in less riverbank erosion
• Native plants create natural habitat for butterflies and birds
The RiverSmart Communities Program
The RiverSmart Communities program provides financial and technical assistance to commercial properties, embassies, houses of worship, property owners, residents and managers of multi-family residential housing, small businesses, and Universities. This program helps to install stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) to better manage stormwater runoff to prevent it from entering our streams and waterways.
To apply visit http://ddoe.dc.gov/service/riversmart-communities or call (202) 654-6131 for more information.
Native plants provide wildlife habitat and reduce the need for pesticides and herbicides. These plants also require less maintenance and less watering. The principles of sustainable garden design have been applied in many other regions, and are referred to by a variety of terms including "BayScaping" or "conservation landscaping."

To our community--
As the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation has evolved, the safety of our community _ employees remains our top priority.
Because of this, we have made the decision to close our doors to both our retail + community spaces effective Monday, March 16th.
Our doors will remain closed to members + customers until Wednesday, April 1st. This is obviously a fluid situation, so we'll be monitoring and adjusting plans and timelines accordingly.
[Note that the reopening sign for April 1st was photographed on May 30.]

Wikipedia Description: Logan Circle, Washington, D.C.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Logan Circle is a neighborhood in the Northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C. It lies six blocks east of Dupont Circle. The traffic circle is the intersection of 13th Street, P Street, Rhode Island Avenue and Vermont Avenue, with a federal park in the middle. The neighborhood is bordered by S Street to the north, 9th Street to the east, 16th Street to the west, and Massachusetts Avenue to the south.
Originally called "Iowa Circle", Logan was renamed by Congress in 1930 in honor of John A. Logan, a Civil War general and U.S. senator. At the center of the circle is a monument to Major General Logan. The circle is surrounded by many old homes, one of which belonged to the son of Ulysses S. Grant.
In the 2000s, the area has become gentrified and housing costs have soared (albeit from a depressed base, due to the overt drug and prostitution markets that existed in the neighborhood through the 1980s and 1990s). The commercial corridor along 14th Street NW is undergoing significant revitalization, and is known for its art galleries and live theater. A watershed event in the development of the neighborhood was the opening of a new, busy Whole Foods Market two blocks from Logan Circle in 1999, on a site previously occupied by an abandoned parking garage.
