Mount Washington sunset

Grabbed this shot walking along Beechmont Avenue in Mount Washington on a recent spring evening. Since the weather broke, I’ve found myself walking the streets and sidewalks of this suburb-in-a-city neighborhood and often surprised by how much I like it there. It’s not downtown, no doubt, but with its town center and rather plentiful Kroger store, it’s a real nice place to be.
