H Street Festival

October 13, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Decided to do something different tonight and write a blog post for a change! 

Now, I am not a big writer, and let's face it, I did not grow up speaking English, so I can't promise you it's going to be great, but I thought I would give it a try.

A few weeks ago, I went to the H Street Festival in NE Washington DC to meet up with other photographers to take pictures. I am not a great street photographer so I went there without expectations and really for the experience and in the hopes that if I continue to expose myself to these type of events and opportunities that I might eventually get better at it.

I got to the festival and it was SUPER crowded as it was a gorgeous day outside! After walking for a while to find my group I started shooting....

There were many stages and music events. This Skull made out of soda cans had a music scene around it! It drew quite a crowd!

Crazy skull made out of soda cans!!!

As we continue to walk one of our fellow photographers wanted to eat something so as she was standing in a long line for food, I was in the street looking around for anything interesting around... (remember, I am not a great street photographer!!!)

Then I noticed this bird on top of this corner street building!

And as I looked further I thought this building with the "Fleur de Lis" looked pretty cool too, especially with the purple neon around it!

After the break we kept walking down the street and found a couple more interesting items. Well, I think they were interesting, but you might not! Let's hope you find it interesting too!

Here is the H Street NE sign, oh and did I mention that this entire area of H street has been redone and looks GREAT!!!! AND they will start running a STREET CAR on H street. (It looks like the Dutch street cars I grew up with, by the way!)

The Festival also had many stands selling items, this pottery stand caught my eye due to the colors and shapes.

Then there was this really cool stand selling steel letters, small one, medium ones and some bigger ones... Many were just in random order BUT we found a few in a great order!

SOL into the SUN!!!

H Street!!!

I just had to take a picture of this guy... He was just perfectly hanging out of his food truck window showing off his tattoos on his arm! There was just something about him and his entire look...

After the festival I decided to stick around the city for a little while longer and take some images of the Capitol Building and the Mall during sunset...

I will write another post about that!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post.
