We went traipsing around NoMa a few weekends back (with some black and white film in the camera) to take a look at all the construction going on, and there is a LOT of it. I snapped this shot of Bowser and Matt walking under some scaffolding, into the abyss. Look at Bowser’s tiny little hind legs! They are so so cute. I guess Matt isn’t bad, either.

Ahhhh Friday. Time for the weekend and a little Rest and Relaxation. Thank goodness! We have a full plate of things to do, people to see — a long training run before the Baltimore Half Marathon in 2 weeks, looking at houses on Saturday, and watching McNabb and the Redskins beat the Eagles. What are your plans?

Anyone else feel a little claustrophobic looking at this alleyway?
Roses Are Red…

…take some time to stop and photograph the roses.

…shot while exiting the metro at New York Avenue/Florida Avenue/Gallaudet University. This red line stop, which opened in 2004, happened to be the first in-fill station in the metro system, filling the gap between Rhode Island Avenue/Brentwood and Union Station.

A cool shot of the lights at The Warehouses at Union Row, 14th and V Street NW, shot with an Olympus XA.

The beautiful (in my humble opinion) images that you see below are my submissions to the 2010 DCist Exposed photography show. This is my third year submitting photos to the contest – fingers crossed! The entry pool for the show this year includes 1,130 photos from 435 photographers. Tough competition would be an understatement. Exposed will open on March 6th at Longview Gallery (1234 9th St NW). It is a great showcase of local photographers and most certainly worth visiting.
This image is taken with a Holga at the Dupont Circle North metro station. I love how the long exposure was able to pull a fire out of the evening sky.
We watched the fireworks from Meridian Hill park this year. The gentleman that climbed the Joan of Arc sculpture had the best view in the house. His focused gaze up towards the theatrics is the sky is eerily similar to the look on Joan of Arc’s face as she charges into battle.
My final submission was snapped during my morning commute. It is taken with a Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim, a junk camera with a wide angle plastic lens. Even in the blustery weather that we have had recently, my morning rides always put me in a good mood. I think this photo captures the pure enjoyment of a leisurely ride.

A fire escape somewhere around 14th Street. Shot on film. Anyone ever had to actually use one of these??

Alleyways are often the best places to find color and textures, and this rusty wall near Q ST is a perfect example. Would be great to see a sped-up time-lapse of the invasion of the rust.
