Protests

Demonstrations continue in D.C.

Last night there were two demonstrations in D.C., continuing to focus on some of the major issues of these difficult times.

The first demonstration was a Black Lives Matter rally, starting at the White House and marching down to the Capitol. These photos are taken when the marchers are just approaching the Capitol.

When the deomonstrators reached the Capitol grounds, they then merged into the Stop Gun Violence rally which was in progress at the Capitol.

There will undoubtedly be many more demonstrations as the summer continues on into the fall campaign season.
 
 

I'm a D.C. native, but have only been taking photos for about five years. Even in that time, I've seen so many changes in D.C., and am increasingly interested in photographing the things in D.C. that are temporary or may be demolished, and the people who interact with the city. When I'm not out photographing, I'm a web developer.
