Photographers Are Some of My Favorite Artists

Some people think I'm crazy. However, I love having multiple photographers take photos of a home we have completed. Each person will find a new point-of-view or an interesting site line no one else has thought of. Or what happens most often is each photographers use of light is so different the same perspective can take on a totally different feel. I just love the science of a photographers thought process. Below are two images taken by Stacy Goldberg at our newly completed home in Cleveland Park. When comparing these photos by Stacy to the other photographers who shot the home, these have a fresh take on the home. Neither are better than the other, just different. That's So OPaL.

OPaL in ADAMS MORGAN / U STREET Landscape Plans

Jordan Crabtree and his Loch Collective from Annapolis have put together an exemplary landscape plan for our Adams Morgan corner home. This lot is a mere 450 square feet. That's not a lot of space, but they have made magic in this design. A garden of sea grasses, annuals and dogwoods with an irregularly shaped patio will provide the future home owners with an outdoor space bonanza (not to mention a roof deck with insane views of the entire city)!
