03/06/15 Ringling Bros Circus announced yesterday that they would be ending their century old tradition of using elephants in their shows by 2018. This will bring to an end the sight of elephants walking through the streets of Washington each time the circus came to town. It’s an event I’ve enjoyed photographing through the years

12/08/14 DC’s Mayor-For-Life Marion Barry passed away on November 22nd. Here’s a photo I took of him in 2007 as he unveiled his wax figure on the red carpet at the the opening night of Madame Tussauds’ Washington DC. His figure was added after the museum polled Washingtonians to find out which local figures should be included in the museum.
