At the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Virginia. This was actually where the U.S. Navy built torpedoes; now it is a vibrant arts center with many artists in residence and great galleries.

    How could I have missed this. I've been to the Washington Navy Yard many times, but never to the Torpedo Factory. Such interesting history, thanks to you and Margan.

    Nice to see the place being utilized for something other thn warfare....it is a colorful weapon, if the body was black, it would look like a giant tapered Duracell battery....
