Washington DC

These images were shot in metropolitan Washington by Michael Swartzbeck, in the Downtown, Adams-Morgan and Dupont Circle sections -- between July 1993 and May 1994. There's a few other "sites" I've discovered elsewhere -- on the Red Line between Union Station and Takoma Park and another spot downtown.
