Elements of the 1920s facade of Saint Thomas Parish Church service building ( @stthomasdc ) remain to be integrated as elements into a new, modern structure, under construction. I'll miss the pocket park created from ruins that graced that corner of 18th and Church Streets NW after the old church burned down in 1970 (as seen in the last of these four photos, taken a year ago; the first three were taken today). The park space will now be part of the new building's site. Architectural altar elements from the ruins will be displayed inside the new church.

Love the plashing of my favorite fountain of a summer evening #dupontcircle

Love the roofline and eclectic original building facades of this block on 20th St. in Dupont Circle, near my house. It includes my neighbors, the good people at the lovely @darlingtonhouse restaurant, a very nice spot for brunch, dinner or a drink. (That space was formerly the storied Childe Harold bar/restaurant, which may be recalled by longtime DC residents as a venue that for 40 years, until 2007, showcased many types of music, including very early shows by Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt and Bruce Springsteen.)

So cool to see @comet_cloth (new project of my longtime friend & client @reneecomet) featured in today's Washington Post (in today's print edition or online in the Food section)!

Wow! Thanks to @wapofood for showcasing us in their "Shopping Cart" feature, by @_karaelder. "You can never have too many kitchen towels. For a touch of practical whimsy, we like Comet Cloth tea towels, designed by Washington photographer Renee Comet." See us in today's print edition or online in the Food section.

Happy #4thofJuly!

Some of my favorite moments of today's walk...see you after March 2018 when you reopen, @dumbartonoaks ! #georgetowndc #acreativedc #dumbartonoaks

Great day for a quick walk through @dumbartonoaks -- just had to visit before they close on July 10 for renovations until reopening in March 2018. Love the Pebble Garden fountain! I just learned that the fish-tailed horse mythological creature seen here is called a hippocamp. #georgetowndc #acreativedc #hippocamp #hippocampus

I like the contrast of the scaffolding against the old house @phillipscollection - renovation work on original museum building just started & will be done in 2018. (Most other parts of the museum are still open: swipe left).

Excited to share my new project, @comet_cloth! I'm serving up selections of my food photos onto textiles as tea towels for the cook. Hope you'll enjoy seeing them online. If inspired, you can purchase there. Thanks for looking! [Link in bio]
