It’s been a hot event since the very beginning. That first year, we waited in the cramped stairwell forever while an apologetic DCist crew, awed by the turnout, handed out free beer.
But for me, the headline was the quality of the photos. The first couple years, I dutifully sorted through my photos, got opinions from friends, and submitted my best shots. I remember thinking there were some great photos in the pool, but mine at least stood a chance of getting picked.
I didn’t make it through the whole exhibit on Saturday (too many people, too many fancy liquor samples), but here are a few I lingered over:
And here are twists on two classic DC views. The photogs don’t allow me to embed them here, but they are totally worth clicking through for.
- Another really nicely composed snow photo with the flags and the monument
- Fourth of July over the monuments, done so well that it doesn’t matter that the concept is overdone.
Sigh. Maybe photography stardom is out reach for most of us, but at least we get to enjoy some really nice photos at a hoppin’ DC art show. Props to DCist for pulling this one off!
