STREET MEET DC.

On Saturday, I had the opportunity to join a Street Meet through Instagram. I was invited by my friend, Gabe, to check out the meet since it was happening in Georgetown. So I figured, why not? I was kind of nervous at first because I felt intimidated. But I decided to go anyway and meet up with Gabe and check out to see what goes on during a photo walk. The meet up was really neat. A lot of fellow photographers who wanted to simply take photos and network with other fellow photographers. I was able to connect with a couple during our walk. One neat thing I noticed during our walk was the amount of people who wanted to get their photos taken. Pretty neat if you’re an aspiring model trying to get dem likes on the ‘gram. But it was cool to observe how some photographers wanted to stage a photo or the model for their photo. Our walk started from Grace Street NW, down to the waterfront, then a walk underneath the Francis Scott Key Bridge and up to this brick structure that was called “The Cliff”. I was able to get a couple of shots in before the cops came. The last photo stop was at the infamous steps from the movie “The Exorcist”. I have to admit, I didn’t know it was in Georgetown, but it was cool to see the stairs from the movie that still freaks me out. After a couple of shots, headed over to bakery called ‘Baked & Wired’ with Gabe…but struck out when we saw the line. That pretty ended my day and headed back home. I thought my photos came out alright, but looking through all the shots I took, I feel like I could have gotten closer for some shots, especially on the models…maybe ask them for a couple portrait shots or compose the photo a little better. But it’s okay, it’s a learning process, and I will continue to learn.

I hope this is a start of meeting up with Gabe for some photo walks in DC or in VA…Also gotta grab some dinner with our families.

I’m glad my wife encouraged me to go and break out of my comfort zone…If I didn’t go, I wouldn’t have learned and observed other photographers.

Good times.

Oh, Royal Rumble was boring.

Steph Curry still doing Steph Curry things.

For you fellow San Francisco 49ers fans, JOHN LYNCH?! WHERE DID HE COME FROM?!

Donald Trump is America’s Duterte. When are they meeting? That’ll be more entertaining than Soulja Boy v. Chris Brown.

K, that’s it. Enjoy the photos.

NEW YEAR’S DAY.

2017 is officially here and it doesn’t feel like it’s a new year. Maybe it’s because this year went by fast…Or maybe the fact that I rang in the new year, the only one awake. My wife fell asleep 8 minutes before midnight lol. Anyway, today was a chill day. Dar and I planned to treat Olivia by taking her to Clemyjontri Park in McLean. So we got ready and headed out …When we arrived, Olivia was ASLEEP. We walked around to check the park out, hoping she’d wake up during our stroll…NOPE. So, we then headed to Georgetown to stop by Sprinkles Cupcakes. Ordered a Cinnamon Sugar cupcake and it was pretty good. Dar had her Red Velvet fix. Took a couple of shots and headed back home. It was a nice drive to get some fresh air and to see Northwest DC while driving the George Washington Parkway.
