The DC blog Prince of Petworth is fabulous in many ways, but some of my favorite posts are those in which the blogger posts photos of houses and storefronts and everyday neighborhood scenes from his walks around DC. When we think of the term “sightseeing” we think of visiting some important landmark or destination. Routine commutes, on the other hand, are about getting from Point A to Point B. But I’m trying to change my way of thinking and start being a little more observant when I walk around DC.
These days when I take the time to really look at the neighborhoods I’m walking through, I notice how many roses there are everywhere. It is definitely rose season here in DC.
Sometimes you’ve got to stop and photograph the roses.
