Technicolor Dreaming on Capitol Hill


March 24, 2013, Washington, DC: Forget that whole bit about spring springing. It's freezing here! Eastern Market is downright drab today, and it's not helping that the street musician bundled in a ski coat at the top of the Metro escalator is playing a mopey rendition of "Killing Me Softly" on a flute. Even the thickest winter running clothes are not enough to put a pep in my step and turn my afternoon walk into a jog. Instead I walk briskly through the neighborhood, snapping photos of any measly infusion of color I can find. Click below to see the most colorful images I could muster up during this last chilly week on Capitol Hill. Here's hoping it truly is our last cold snap for months and months to come.
