Stroll Through Glen Echo Park

Seeing how I left the office late it would have been too dark to get home and take my walk so I stopped off at Glen Echo Park and snapped some photos.  I had my Olympus EM1 with the Tair 11A on it and my Fuji X100s for shorter shots.  Only one of these was shot with the Tair as I have a hard time with longer lenses because I’m not used to them.

Really like the contrails in the picture.  It could be the government spraying some sort of chemical on me but I’m going with science and calling it a jet contrail considering I live in a area with three major airports.

I have no idea why this was called that.  It was just an open area behind the ticket window.

Its amazing what you can do when you shove a camera up against a window.  The carousel was closed but being an enterprising photographer means I just shoved the lens hood up against the glass and pressed the shutter.

I’m a sucker for neon.

  1. Wonderful photos of our beautiful park — which has been an arts and cultural center for the past forty or so years. But much of our architecture — and neon signs, too — hark back to the days when the site was Glen Echo Amusement Park. The only ride left from those amusement park days is the historic carousel, which opens for the season on May 3.

  2. Glen Echo Park. Lots of good memories as a child. The cuddle up, I believe used to be a ride. The merry go round, what child does not love that one. Never got back to the park when I grew up.
