Wisconsin Avenue & M Street
My state-named street project is still going strong! I’ve now finished 23 states and explored at least some of about 10 others. I found this cool storefront and sign on Colorado Avenue, NW. Interested in seeing more from the project? Take a look here.
I’ve been in a bit of a photo rut lately. I feel like I’m constantly shooting the same things in the same places. Because of this, I decided it’s time for a new project.
As most people probably know, there is a roadway in DC named after each of the 50 states (plus Puerto Rico!). They vary in length from 0.4 miles to well over 5 miles and are in each quadrant of the city. (For more info, check this handy dandy Wikipedia article out.) Over the course of this summer, I will attempt to photograph each state-named road’s street sign and some things of interest on each street. (By quick estimate I’ll be exploring approximately 113 miles of roads… assuming I explore ALL of each street.) I’m not sure how this whole project will shape out, but I’m excited to get on with it and see how it turns out.
I hope this project will not only lead me to see areas of the city I would have otherwise never seen, but hopefully will help get me out of my photo funk.
