This year's mild weather in D.C. predicts a bad year (by consequence of no practice [and by that I mean lack of]) for the Capitol City's traditional Memorial Day cook outs.
I saw these Fourth District Metropolitan Police officers trial testing some new equipment near 17th St NW. The cops said that using the Segways would give those who walk the beat higher visibility. The commander commented that they are easier on the feet but are probably not an alternative to pursuing a subject on foot.
I had an interesting shoot at the Rayburn Office Building a couple days ago. It was a farewell party for former Congressman Charlie Wilson. Wilson's story's author George Crile (of CNN) was there and had several autographed copies of his newly released New York Times Bestselling book "Charlie Wilson's War."
At the White House this morning some local elementary school children put their freedom of speech to good use. Their tiny voices demand Senate representation for Washington, DC.
I had fun and got some good exercise while helping my friends the Mokey's move this weekend
I did a lot of backseat driving this weekend. This is up in Adams-Morgan. . . . Here is my friend Matt in the backseat of a car in Mclean, Va. While I was in the great suburb of McLean I noticed this fine example of Americana (McDonald's) architecture that I never see in DC, and use to take for granted.
In exchange for the promise of ginger chicken from Mehran (Pakistani Restaurant near George Washington Circle) I helped a friend Juan move some paintings from the Corcoran Gallery to V St NW. We pushed the cart down, what seemed like several miles the sidewalks stopping every half block to readjust the paintings.
Dustin and Ginger strike a pose in the hall of Corcoran College. Soon they will both be graduating and seeking a richer, fuller life. A life that mimics art. A life that they can not reach by striking a pose in dramatic lighting alone.
