Here’s a little snow to remind you that it’s actually still winter in the northern hemisphere. Also, not a bad example of some of the beautiful architecture here in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria.
On one of our evening walks with the kids, we passed this house that we’ve passed at least a hundred times before. Except this time it looked markedly different.
“Was that wall always like that?” I asked my wife. Definitely not we decided.
I had to do a Google maps street view search to even recall what it looked like before (white plaster or something), but now the original brick was exposed in all its glory- and with a surprise. I love these old advertisements that were just painted right onto buildings. It reminds me a bit of the sign painted onto the cliff above Harpers Ferry (photo at right). Lasting impressions from a time long gone.
