Bethesda Summer Evening

   One of my favorite places to hang-out the past year has been up in Bethesda in the very nicely developed, upscale, commercial-entertainment district located around the block bordered by Woodmont, Elm, and Bethesda Avenues.  Here one finds plenty of good restaurants, shops, a new cinema multiplex for artful movies, and the neighborhood Barnes & Noble, which is popular with youth, as well as parents & kids.  As a sampling of the ambience of that area, the following pictures were taken Sunday evening (7-13-3).
