Shrine to Tiff | 5300 block of Dix Street NE





There have been two recent violent shooting deaths in the 5300 block of Dix Street NE, Washington DC. 

I documented this shrine there, on the edge of the Clay Terrace neighborhood. I do not know who it was erected for. The person honored was nicknamed Tiff.

In any case, I wish peace and justice for the families affected, and for the community.
