Exploring my Hometown with a Camera

Bethesda: Totally Transformed

I grew up here and I'm not lying to you when I say, there used to be parking spaces and no-wait restaurants! I remember waiting forever at Ritz Camera along Bethesda Row for our film to be processed and getting my braces off here on Bethesda Avenue! But after a decade away from home, a lot has changed.

This part of town is now very posh. It's certainly not the Bethesda I knew. At least the swing set across from Giant grocery and Bradley Shopping Center are still there.
