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.
