Doors, originally uploaded by needlepointernc.

One of these doors is the ENTRANCE to the Fujian Resident Association in Chinatown in Washington, DC. We went on a walking tour of the area because it also used to be the Jewish section of Washington. Chinatown in DC isn’t very vibrant anymore.

The saturation and colors in this are just perfect. Love those old buildings.

So sad to see the neighborhood in decline. They are trying – look at the beautiful bright color.

I guess I should have said that I bumped up the saturation a little on the bricks… so the house looks a little brighter than it did in person.

Love the different blocks of colors and what wonderful textures!

Odd – Chinatown in NYC is booming. There are three in Brooklyn, one in Manhattan and one in Queens – and that’s just the ones I know of.

The concept of a non Vibrant Chinatown is an anathema to me – So Sad!
