i didn't take this photo.

...but i wanted to. Some DC photog snapped it. I saw this dilapitated building two weeks ago when I was shopping by Metro Center. It struck me for two reasons: 1) it seems so misplaced in the light-gray-dark-gray DC cityscape; and 2) because I hardly ever look UP in this city. I'm always looking straight ahead or down and walking speedily to make my way with as little interaction as possible with what's or who's around me (no wonder I get so pissed off with this place--and the heels of my boots wear down too quickly). I've lived here on and off for many many years and I never noticed this old cracked-up beauty. Gotta look up more oft.
