Plaza Art is a long time Silver Spring business. I stopped to say hello to the two cats and noticed the sunset reflection in the window.

Fenton Redevelopment

I was just walking around this afternoon and came across this piece of redevelopment on Fenton Ave. There were also signs for Fenton Village on the other side of the road. It looks like redevelopment is not that far into the future.

The view towards Fenton Ave from Wayne Ave. This is an older part of Downtown but I believe there are plans to redevelop it in the future.

Gallery Restaurant Lounge is located towards the Washington DC state line. A lot of construction is taking place around it. I spotted this wall and couldn’t decide if it was art for art’s sake or camouflage to try and hide the building site next door.
