Chinatown in D.C.

 Spent some time in Chinatown on a recent trip to Washington, D.C. It doesn't take much to entertain this ol' country boy. I enjoyed the massive wooden doors on a Catholic Church, above, and the Chinese writing on all the signs.

 Click to enlarge the photo above to see the imagery on the building. Pretty awesome.

 I ate in the place above one day. They have ducks and octopi hanging on their right.

 This church was interesting for its burned-out steeples. But it still had a message for me in its stained glass below. Click to enlarge if you like.

 Only I could go to Washington and be fascinated by rocks in a grate, above.


  1. I love all your pictures, Marty ... especially the stained glass window and its inspiring message.

    I've enjoyed seeing the places you've visited recently, as reflected through your lens. That is truly the next best thing to being there in person (and we probably wouldn't see the things you've shown us, even if we were there in person).

  2. I love those rocks in a grate! If I had seen them, I would have gotten a shot, too. LOL!

    That church is really beautiful. Was it burned and a shell? What a shame if so.
