The first photo says it was taken 18 hours ago and I checked because I really hoped that it was taken post flooding.

I like the tilt-shift of the crosswalk right there. Really makes the bike lane look nice.

That pic of Dupon Circle is similarly great because it shows that variety of building heights/formats is not some sort of home values reducer that people who don't want a new building say it will be.

Haha I took a picture from almost that exact same spot. The creek was already clearly way down by yesterday morning but it was still a quite a bit more of a flow that it's usual trickle. Admittedly my picture isn't nearly as pretty.

Here is a link to the USGS stream flow gauge at Joyce Road showing the flow rate.

This is a great site for water geeks; data on DO, turbidity, etc.
