A Few Georgetown Photos

I visited Georgetown a few weeks ago.  These are the best of the nighttime shots.

A Links Event

My friend is a newly inducted member of the Patapsco River (MD) Chapter of the Links, Inc., a women’s friendship and service organization.  I went as a guest to their major fundraiser, the Denim & Diamonds Bull Roast.  I brought along my camera and got a few decent images.

A Professional Head Shot

A friend needed quick and simple head shots for work.  The only requirement was that they needed to be on location.  Here is one of my favorites from that day.

Step Afrika! Step Xplosion – Ward 4

I wasn’t terribly happy with these photos from the grand finale of Step Afrika’s Step Xplosion tour.  Happy with the composition, but technically not my best work.  Still, you may enjoy them.

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.
