FED EX - KINKOS opens on 14th Street in the Logan Circle area

I began photographing the U Street Corridor, the Historic 14th Street District and P Street in the Logan Cirlce area in June 2005 with my 35 mm Canon Rebel. Having lived at 1320 Q Street from April 1985 until July 1986 which was when Greg and I moved to 417 15th Street in SE my documentation of the area has not been unlike my interest in other areas of the city. Or NYC including Chelsea and Gramery Park that I have had more than just a passing connection to.

Observing during my Wednesday, 15 August 2007 photo walk that a FED EX KINKOS had recently opened in a retail space at Lofts 14 - Two which I have photographed since June 2005 I stepped inside and while informing the staff of my ongoing interest in 14th Street, inquired how long had KINKOS occupied the space.

They said three weeks.

Before acquiring an IMAC 9.2 OS in 2001 I spent a lot money creating many photoessays, collages, and greeting cards via KINKOS. Most of which were catalogued and archived.

However, with the IMAC computer in 2001 and a Dell 4600 in July 2003 most of my projects since have been via the internet. Including reporting for several news organizations which began in September 2001 as a result of the 11 September attack. Which, in recent years, has shfited more toward blogging.

Located in a ground level retail space of Lofts 14 - Two the FED EX - KINKOS at 1512 14th Street in NW is a much needed service to the Logan Circle area.
