I'm a D.C. native, but have only been taking photos for about five years. Even in that time, I've seen so many changes in D.C., and am increasingly interested in photographing the things in D.C. that are temporary or may be demolished, and the people who interact with the city. When I'm not out photographing, I'm a web developer.
If you are near the Mall anytime before May 4th, look in the middle of the Mall and you'll see a giant glass case with a car inside it. For the third year, the Historic Vehicle Association is sponsoring an exhibit featuring classic cars. The first car featured this year is the Gypsy Rose 1964 Chevrolet Impala lowrider. It will soon be exchanged for the McGee Roadster 1932 Ford V8 hotrod, later followed by the Hirohata Merc 1951 Mercury Coupe.
The Fancy Animal Carnival has just arrived in town. You'll find the animals at CityCenter, the park at 6th and Mass, and 13th and NY Avenue. In addition to these giant animals, there is also a small fancy sheep which will move around downtown D.C.

The 115th Congress convened at noon today for what will likely be an historic session. I went to see what was happening outside, expecting to see lots of news media and some protesters. But there was no one at noon, except for this lone journalist setting up in the media area, one late entrant to the House of Representatives, and the usual guards.
