DC's 15th Street Bike Lane Considered Best Cycletrak

While I've enjoyed capturing bicyclists for several years its only been since April of this year that I've focused on official bike lanes.

My favorite spot to capture bicyclists is along the 15th Street Bike Lane at the intersection of 15th and P Streets in NW Washington DC.

In fact, in March 2011, the 15th Street Bike Lane was awarded the Best Cycletrack by Washington City Paper's Best of 2011 Competition.

Threshold #1 Represents Chas. Colburn's 2nd of 2 Sculptures on First Street in NoMa

Always on the look for interesting Public Art In Public Spaces I recently came across the second of two works by Sculptor Chas. Colburn in the 800 block of First Street in NE Washington DC.

Almost certain that the Threshold #1 painted steel sculpture was not there during my 29 April 2011 First Street / NoMa Walk a review of Colburn's resume indicates that the ribbon cutting was in June 2011.

While Threshold #1 is located in front of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission at 888 First Street, NE, Colburn's Trigadilly situated in front of the CNN Building at 820 First Street, NE, and installed in 1991 was his first work in the Union Station/NOMA area.
