Fall in Palmer Alley DC

The pictures here were taken at one of my favorite spots in DC--Palmer Alley, City Center. 

Every season, the alley is decorated with installations that depict the weather. The installations are always fun and I get pretty excited to see what each season brings.

Currently, the alley is decked out in fall trimmings, and since fall is slipping away real fast, I took a trip a few weekends ago to get some shots of the alley. I missed this year's summer installation and I definitely did not want to miss fall's. However, I was a tad disapointed that this year's fall installation was the same as the past two years. 

I also included photos of the alley over the years, through the changing seasons.
  
Enjoy the photos

Living Colorfully in Old Town Alexandria

Hey guys, happy humpday! Just two more days, and the weekend is here--whoop! Speaking about weekends, this past Saturday was a fun one! My cousin was visiting from Lagos, so we decided to take a train ride to Old Town, Alexandria in Virginia. 

The day started with brunch, and ended with super fun vibrant colors we encountered all around Old Town Alexandria. I usually do not publish videos here, but we also took many cool videos and I couldn't resist not posting it here.

Enjoy...
We had brunch at a restaurant called Warehouse.
I have been to this restaurant several times, so once I got in, I found my way to this wall that I love so muc
In addition to American dishes, Warehouse offers Cajun & Creole dishes. I love NOLA style food, so of course I had gumbo and beignets--it was yum!
Now unto the streets
Color makes me happy
I have several photos in front of this vibrant Torpedo Art Factory wall

Blind Whino


I am a sucker for colorful buildings, but non tugs at my heart strings like Blind Whino. A traditional church architecture doused in bright colors and then turned to an art center is right up my alley. 

I have visited Blind Whino several times for art exhibitions, but I must confess, there are times I just wander over there and bask in the colorful glory. 

See photos of my various visits to "favoritest" colorful building yet.


Isn't this the most colorful building? Are you guys in love like I am ?
