Step Afrika! Step Xplosion – Ward 2

On Thursday, September 3, 2015, I attended Step Afrika’s “Brown Bag Lunchtime Performance” at the Pepco Edison Place Gallery, located at 702 8th Street, Northwest, in Ward 2 of DC.  It is part of a tour of all eight wards of Washington that kicks off the 2015-2016 performance season. My friend and honorary member of Gamma Xi Phi Christopher Brient was performing and I wanted to surprise him.  I also got to see my Alpha Phi Alpha brother, founder of Step Afrika C. Brian Williams.  I was just taking photos for personal use, but then I met John Stoltenberg, an arts journalist, and I agreed to share some of the shots with him.  Overall, I was pleased with how they turned out.  I do prefer my longer lens (200mm)–I guess I’m just a sucker for extreme closeups.
