When life hands you lemons, pour yourself a shot of tequila with salt and be happy.

Fed up with standing for the entire hour-long ride
to D.C. every morning, this ingenious commuter
brought a stool to sit on.

Lady Liberty

Everybody in D.C. was tryin' to make a buck off Inaugural activities

Friday afternoon rush to sell Obama paraphernalia in front of Union Station.

My kitty thinks he's abstract art.

Conkling St. & Eastern Ave.

People in Bmore must like to get their read-on!
This crowd is waiting for the library to open.

The Park Service Prepares for Inauguration Day

Fleet St., between Conkling and Dean Streeets

Tom sucks and blows.
Says so right there on the sidewalk.

Side note: This graffiti is etched on the sidewalk in front of Quest, a local gay bar. I bet Tom is a popular man in that place.

Pagoda at Patterson Park

I don't care much for American football,
but I can certainly appreciate team spirit.

New Year's Day fireworks from my bedroom window. I had a great view from my bed, but I had to take this picture from a different vantage point due to glare.

Lucky Gooming, Fleet & Conkling Streets

I'm not sure if you can tell from this photo, but the mural painted on the side of Lucky Grooming has a bestial-erotic quality. Drawings of dogs with sexy legs are creepy. You'll notice the doggie-version of Marilyn Monroe. You can't see it here, but "Lucky 3 itch" is written on the wall. I get the pop-culture reference, but I can't help making the leap from fleas to crabs.

4501 Eastern Ave. (near Macon St.)

I had to do a double take. Seven Even. What a knock off.
