The Washington, DC region is great >> and it can be greater.


Good streets, bad streets in the Flickr pool

Someone tell Dasha Rosato to make that watermark smaller. Ugh.

@David: Oops, I actually had the non-watermark version but hadn't gotten it swapped in. It's in now.

We actually have an informal rule which I just made into an explicit rule on the Flickr page, saying that we won't use images with a prominent notice or watermark. It detracts too much from people being able to enjoy the pictures.

That's Gallows and 29 in the last picture, you can tell because of Merrifield Garden Center in the right background that this is looking N along Gallows; the area to the left is cleared because they're building an overpass of 29 for Gallows there. Gallows and 50 is a SPUI-like interchange with 50.

29 is Lee Hwy, 50 is Arlington Blvd at that point.
