Food for thought

Old Town Alexandria isn’t just a tourist paradise of quaint, photogenic old houses and beautiful patios and gardens. People live there, and they have to eat. Sure, there’s a Balducci’s (some of us will remember it by its old name of Sutton Place Gourmet, which gives you a good idea of the kind of food carried there and the prices). But tucked in among the old row houses, catering for more prosaic culinary needs, is a plain old Safeway.

    Well, Safeway says it all doesn’t it? Good post! 😉

    These shopping carts make me think of an Olympic luge team: all crammed up against each other, ready to go flying downhill!

    Pasante, I love the shadows of the carts and the lines of the railing and the carts. This photo really works! Thanks for drawing my attention to it (caring for an ailing family member day and night and just not able to view daily photos as much as I used to, so am missing an awful lot–thank goodness for Marie’s “best of” which I can click through and get a few highlights, but it’s not the same flavor as seeing everything. . .sigh). Hope you are keeping cool. The news has reported the DC area is cookin’ hot.
