It has been an especially dreary May in DC. With more consecutive rainy days than ever previously recorded, and the few dry days being grey and dreary, it has been the type of May you’d expect more in Washington the State than in Washington the District of Columbia . So, when the sun finally came out, I grabbed our model-in-residence and a camera and raced to the dog park for an impromptu late afternoon/golden hour shoot.

I love photographing children in a natural environment where I can capture them just being children (more on that coming soon).

sunday in the park

Every Sunday, Malcolm X Meridian Hill Park in Washington, DC explodes into a cacophony of sights and sounds as drummers, dancers, acrobats, would-be tight-wire walkers, hula-hoopers, hackey sackers, frisbee throwers, runners, strollers, and onlookers of all ages, sizes, shapes and colors fill the park with the sounds, movements, customs and languages of a virtual United Nations of peoples and cultures. Here are a small handful of images shot on an ordinary Sunday afternoon in this park that is anything but ordinary. (And, you know, click an image to fully appreciate it in large format theater mode.)
