The other night, I was biking by the Petworth metro station and noticed a giant solar array on the Fisherman of Men Church roof.
When I went back, it was impossible to get a good photo from the sidewalk: trucks kept passing, telephone wires and light poles obstructed the view, and everyone was giving me the look. I considered climbing the church and am happy I didn't follow through with that.
Then it hit me. I looked up at the Park Place Apartments across the street and saw the perfect overlook from the seventh floor roof deck. Handel's Messiah played in my head like a choir of angels as I walked over.

I got some great photos of the 52 kilowatt solar-powered church. More importantly, I learned to not be afraid to ask for what I want, even if it sounds weird.
There's a great article about the church and it's solar roof: Powered by God's Created Sun, Empowered by His Only Begotten Son. Ha!
