One of my favorite places in Washington, DC is the National Gallery of Art. I particularly love the East Building. Beyond the amazing art, the architecture of the building itself is stunning.
The building recently reopened after a three-year renovation including creating additional gallery space and a lovely rooftop terrace with sculptures including the now famous "Hahn/Cock" by Katharina Fritsch on long-term loan from Glenstone. When I last visiting, the three towers each houses the following artists' works: Barbara Kruger, Alexander Calder, Mark Rothko, and Barnett Newman. Some of these exhibits will be limited time while others will rotate the works displayed or remain longer term.
I really enjoyed checking out the new digs during NGA Evenings at the Edge program where the museum stays open late with performances, music, and pop-up talks. (NOTE: One such night remains in April, so be sure to sign up if you haven't been yet...or if you have and want more!)
Each summer, the National Building Museum holds a Summer Block Party series, transforming the Great Hall into an immersive experience.
This year, ICEBERGS graced the museum. Designed by James Corner Field Operations, the installation provides visitors the opportunity to view icebergs from both above and below the water line...and even slide down one.
ICEBERGS closes today (September 5, 2016), so make your way over to the National Building Museum if you haven't done so yet! Already looking forward to the next iteration of the Summer Block Party series next year...

POW! WOW! is a global art movement that is currently bringing together local and international artists in Washington, DC. My friend, Farrah, led a Walk With Locals tour of some of the mural sites on Friday. I brought along a Fuji Instax camera and had just enough film for a shot (or two) of each of the sites we saw. While I love taking and seeing photos of these murals, I have to say... the pictures don't quite do it justice. If you have a chance, you definitely want to see these for yourself in person.

I first heard Wild Belle back in October 2012 at the 930 Club when they opened for Passion Pit. I immediately fell in love with their sound & Natalie's voice, so I was excited to find out they would be back in DC this past weekend. I decided to keep up the trend of shooting more film and also experiment with pushing some film. Here are some of the pictures from the roll of Ilford HP5+ pushed to 1600.

When I first moved to the DC area, I loved going down to the Tidal Basin to see the (in)famous cherry blossoms. It's such a beautiful way to welcome spring after months of winter. However, as the years passed it seems the crowds just kept getting larger until I no longer really enjoyed being there anymore.
I wasn't planning on heading down this year until I got an inquiry for an engagement session with the special request of Saturday, March 26 at the Tidal Basin. I suggested early in the morning, close to sunrise in order to have less crowds. Thankfully, the couple was on the same page and also super awesome! (Hoping to post some of those pics soon, so stay tuned...)
Now, I am far from a morning person and very rarely see a sunrise. Usually if I do, it's because I have an early flight. But after seeing the beautiful light and lighter crowds, I found myself wanting to spend another sunrise at the Tidal Basin with the cherry blossoms. So this past Thursday morning, I packed up some gear and headed back out early in the morning while it was still dark.
This might be my new spring tradition. Also, I want to try to catch more sunrises in general.
