Both photos represent contrasts of the reality with life in the city.
The first was a car junked-up and sitting on the sidewalk. It was quite out of place in front of the neat rowhouses and otherwise nicely manicured street.
The second was the "free samples" tray of delicious Pumpkin Munchkins at Dunkin' Donuts with all the samples gone--empty--nothing there.
Perhaps, if we put these together in a storyline then it's simple...someone wrecked their car, put grafitti all over it in some sort of artistic or social statement, made their way over to DD and in their anxiety ate up all the free munchkins, and left only a short while later to get over to the car dealship to look for a new set of wheels.
That's a pretty full day even in Washington, D.C. ;-)
