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.
December 23rd, 2016 It’s Open on Christmas!
Ever wish there was something else open in D.C. on Christmas Day other than restaurants and movie theaters?

They are all free, except for Mount Vernon.
