In Washington, DC, everything is about politics, even the graffiti.  It definitely feels that way, as this wall in the Adams Morgan neighborhood seems to attest.  I have to admit that I have photographed this wall several times in the past, but for some strange reason, this latest time around it kind of got my attention.  It is as if I had missed the writing in the past.  So what’s the big deal?  Admittedly, not much, but what I like is how this graffiti captures the nature of this neighborhood.  A bit chaotic, never the cleanest one, multi-ethnic, and rowdy.  Without a doubt one of the best places to hang out in DC, specially at night.  Just keep your eyes wide open, as there’s a lot happening under the surface.
