I was downtown specifically to take photos of Rolling Thunder, the annual parade of Vietnam War veterans that happens every Memorial Day weekend in DC. I stopped to take this shot on the way back to the Metro. There’s another bucket (outside the frame of this shot) where passersby had been putting in money. I wasn’t the only one who slipped in a dollar. Considering the quality of their instruments, these guys were pretty good.

12th & Madison Rhythm Section

Another shot from the kite festival. The most frustrating thing about this shot was figuring out the best way to crop it. This crop is just the last one I tried (which may or may not be the best one).

Another shot from the 2005 Washington Auto Show. It might have been a better shot if I’d blurred more of the background with aperture priority.
