February 7th, 2017 The light against the darkness #NoBanNoWall

January 30th, 2017 Documenting #TheResistance
DC Focused has always covered protests but never to the extent that we have in the past two weeks. And there doesn't seem to be any end in sight to the protests against the new administration and its policies.

December 10th, 2016 It’s cold outside
One of the top locations for street photography in D.C. is U Street. So when a few of us were out walking there one night this week, we were expecting to catch some of the usual action, but it was too cold and there was almost no one on the streets. We then turned to looking inside, and photographed the views through the windows. As we head into the cold days, we can still enjoy street photography even on empty streets.
