Earlier this month, I met up with a few fellow photographers in Columbia Heights for some drinks and discussion. In particular, we were all interested in talking about the rights of the photographer. This was sparked through both my encounter with a not-so-nice gentleman and the recent press given to the blog DC Metro People.
I planned to get there early so I could walk around the neighborhood doing some street work. While doing so I came across this young lady sitting on a bench across from the DCUSA Building. We made eye contact, I pointed to my camera and she nodded her head yes. I thanked her for the portrait, gave her my card then headed to the meet-up.
