Washington Notes

We had a wonderful weekend in Washington DC over the May 13th and 14th. We actually played like tourists and attended Mass on Sunday at the National Cathedral.

After attending the service I was photographing the interior of the Cathedral when I noticed another guy carrying a camera bag and shooting with a Canon 5D. I struck up a conversation with him to ask about the camera and what else he might have in his bag. I was excited to hear that he also had with him the 70-200 IS lens and the 580 flash and much more gear back at the hotel. So I asked if he was a professional photographer, assuming that he probably was. Imagine his surprise when he found that No he wasn't a professional photographer but a real estate agent from Seattle!!!!

Never to let an opportunity pass --- I invited him to the workshop Monday evening in Tyson's Corner. He showed up with his wife and loved the seminar.

Thanks to everyone for all the wonderful comments. We had great attendance for the whole week.

We left Charlotte early Friday morning to make the 8 hour drive back home. We arrived home around 2:30pm. I quickly touched base with "the girls" changed into a suit and left by 4:00 to shoot a wedding Friday night. Then woke early to shoot a 12 hour wedding on Saturday!! Sunday was indeed a day of rest.
