Caps celebration

The Caps celebrated the opening day of their new season, with the raising of the Stanley Cup banner and great hopes for the coming year.  The game was broadcast on a large screen outside the arena, and the surrounding streets were full of red.

Born Yesterday

Ford’s Theatre is putting on Born Yesterday, a classic 1940’s political comedy.  I got to go on a social media preview of it, with the props director Marie Scneggenburger showing us the props she had purchased and designed for the show, based on a 1940’s glamorous hotel similar to the Willard.

Bubbles

Bubble artist Jennifer Shannon at Art All Night in Shaw.  The “fire bubbles” are especially amazing – she covers her arm with bubble liquid, then puts her hand in a flame and draws the fire upwards.

Kavanaugh Protest

Large protest in front of the Supreme Court as the Judiciary Committee deliberates on 9/28.

I went into the Hart Senate building while the committee was still deliberating, and the atrium was filled with clusters of women live-streaming the process on their phones, filled with tension and sadness.

Washington Ballet rehearsal

I had an amazing time getting to photograph the Washington Ballet from the wings of the Kennedy Center Eisenhower Theater stage as they rehearsed for their upcoming performances.  This was their final rehearsal – it took place in the afternoon and their first performance was later that evening.
