Photowalk: National Mall

I was with some photographer friends down on The Mall this past Sunday. While the overall atmosphere was a bit too slow for me I always enjoy walking, talking, and shooting. We met at the MLK monument and turned West to the Lincoln memorial where we stumbled upon an anti-arctic drilling rally. We went as far west as the Smithsonian Castle before packing it in. Overall, I got some great pics, but would opt for a more lively setting next time.

 

Feelin' the Bern NYC P.1

Last week, while wandering south from Union Square I stumbled onto PREPARATION for the Bernie Sanders rally in Washington Square Park. There were a lot of young people and supports there- NYU students, etc.

It was mid-afternoon and lines were already forming. I snapped a few shots then went home with plans to return once the event has began...

I finally broke the gravitational pull of my sofa around 6:30pm and returned to the Village. The police had a serious perimeter and getting within a block of Washington Square Park was tough. Fortunately, after doing a full lap of the park I was able to wiggle in and grab some shots from inside the rally.

Following Fashion Week, I spent a lot of time (and $$) in Joe & the Juice during the month of February. I was meeting photographer friends and making new ones almost daily. It is certainly a New York hip/hipster spot. A 'scene', for sure. I think I'm a little too regular-guy for that crowd but the people watching is top notch.
