    Weekend Focus: Flight of the birds, snow caps and a urinal

      Hopefully, you’re surviving winter’s last gasp. Hang in there. Warm weather and spring is just around the corner. If you’re in Virginia and looking for events to photograph, you can get an early start on the St. Patrick’s Day festivities with Alexandria’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. And not to be out done, Annapolis is hosting its own Irish Festival. Featured image, Navy Yard – Old 933 by Brian Mosley, is part of the DC Focused flickr pool. More images from the pool below.

    Getting their ink on at the DC Tattoo Expo

      The DC Tattoo Expo returned this year in its words “bigger and better” than ever, with hundreds of artists and thousands of aficionados coming out to Arlington to check out the vendors, shows and other activities. DC Focused photographers were also on hand to document the action.

    Weekend Focus: the city at night, jumbo crabs and placid waters

      Holiday festival season continues to rev up this weekend with the Montgomery County Thanksgiving Parade kicking off at 10 a.m. Saturday in downtown Silver Spring. If you’re up for a drive, head over to Gettysburg, instead, for the Remembrance Day Parade at 1 p.m. on Saturday and the graveside illumination ceremony that evening. You can also check out the Catharsis on the Mall:  A Vigil for Healing the Drug Wars, which kicks off Friday night on the northwest side of the Washington Monument and continues until Sunday morning with testimonials, music, dancing and the burning of a wooden temple at 11 p.m. on Saturday night. Featured image, Leaving by…

    Weekend Focus: Just hanging out

      Another weekend, another selection of great photos from our DC photo community. Should be another great weekend of photo ops.

    Weekend Focus: Shadows, landscapes and a smoking lady

      Thank you restaurant week for taking our minds off of how horrible the DC Metro has become — if only for a few moments. If you’re looking to get out of town for an interesting photo op, you might consider heading over to Frederick, Maryland to check out the water lilies. Meanwhile, just one more month of summer left. We can do this. Featured image, Smoking a Butt by Geoff Livingston, is part of the DC Focused flickr pool. More images from the pool below.

    Weekend Focus: We’re doing the double double Dutch

      This is one of those days where we really appreciate DC’s amazing photography community. The photos in our flickr pool were amazing. The featured image is actually a self portrait that frequent contributor Zack Lewkowicz did at the Lincoln memorial. Here’s his description: “This is a back facing self portrait I took last night behind the Lincoln Memorial. To the left is the Arlington Memorial bridge and to the right is Rosslyn,VA. I used a 10s shutter release to give me time to jump down from Lincoln and get in frame. Then I stood still for 20s to get the full exposure. I can’t believe how well this turned…

    Weekend Focus: She was all legs (plus Roy takes a selfie)

    While we usually celebrate Star Wars Day on May 4th, we’re down with the Washington Nationals doing it this Sunday for the home game against the Dodgers (cue the Darth Vader theme music).  This also might be the weekend to head up to Baltimore and take in the annual Artscape festival.

    Weekend Focus: Passing through the wormhole

      We woke up this morning to temps in the 70s. Did we somehow end up in San Diego overnight? Enjoy it because it won’t last.

    Weekend Focus: Let the countdown for the Fourth begin

      It’s the weekend before Independence Day. And that can only mean one thing — it’ time to eat some barbecue! Are you ready? The best way to prepare for next weekend’s grilling activities is to head downtown and check out the 23rd annual Safeway Barbecue Battle. Meanwhile, cheer on the U.S. Women’s National Team tonight in the Women’s World Cup tonight but even better, check out the Washington Spirit on Saturday.

    Say it loud and proud DC: Scenes from Capital Pride

    We love the Capital Pride Parade and Festival because it’s one of those weekends where this ladder-climbing, suit-wearing, self-important city lets its hair down. And because you get such wonderful photo opportunities. Featured image, Freedom – Pride 2015  by Pablo Raw, is part of the DC Focused flickr pool. More images from the pool below.
