Somewhere along the lines I forgot that the leaves were changing colors and failed to go out and take any pictures. Last weekend I finally got some shots just under the wire. My sister and brother-in-law went to Pennsylvania to see the leaves, so I went down to their apartment on Saturday to get their car and do some shopping.
On my short walk to Cap South I saw some great fall specimens. Oh, these colors!
This next photo is representative of that classic East Coast look -- brick sidewalks, row houses, street parking, fall leaves, and a church steeple in the background. There are a lot of old fashioned church buildings back here. That wasn't completely random.
These other photos may not be fall related, but I love, love them.
This fall grouping photo would have been perfect if not for the Texas flag in the background.
Oh, sorry, Sarah. I meant that the Texas flag makes the photo even better.
After some shenanigans involved with getting to my sister's apartment -- taking the wrong train (how is that possible now?), a missed bus, an emergency stop at a mall bathroom, and catching a cab outside of a Ritz in my tracksuit and Crocs -- I finally picked up the car and set out down King Street towards Old Town Alexandria.
On my way there I was a picture taking fiend. Look at these houses! Once the temperature and humidity drop I love this area and feel so happy to be here.
I was enamored with this long line of pumpkins interspersed with these lime green fruits/pods that I couldn't identify.
