Friday Night in WDC Summer Series / 06 July 2007

I actually began my Friday Night in WDC Summer 2007 Series on Friday, 8 June when the day after my return from a Memorial Day Holiday in Fort Lauderdale that I stopped in at Frank Muzzy's Bare to Bear opening reception at Pulp on 14th Street.

Armed with a new Canon Power Shot S3 1S I recorded my second video-interview when after leaving the reception and in the course of my ongoing 14th Street Project that I happened upon David Dienstag, a motorcycle enthusiant, who lives just one block south of Pulp On 14th Street.

The following week when on a weekend trip to my hometown, Lexington Park, in Southern Maryland for the purpose of photographing the Saturday, 16 June 2007 St. Mary's County Juneteenth Celebration I captured Friday Nights in Southern Maryland at the Brusters Real Ice Cream in Hollywood Maryland.

My 22 June 2007 Friday Night in Washington DC begin with the Herb White Memorial Service at the Friends Meeting House and concluded with the Two Steps Away Dancers in Dupont Circle.

Having spent Wednesday and Thursday, 27 - 28 June, capturing the first two days of the 2007 Smithsonian Folklife Festival I spent Friday night, 29 June, organizing my photos and finishing up on the June 2007 webpage.

And re-editing my ongoing "Independence Day" photoessays which includes "It's A Camera, Not A Gun" and "When White Folks Come Around" and "The Fiddler".

In the past, my Friday Evening Photo Walks and Friday Nights in Washington DC were represented by still images. Whereas, this past Friday's 'walk against racism' involved videography.

I began my 06 July 2007 Video Walk at Dupont Circle South by capturing the Madison Livelystones Band, who I have photographed since 1994. While I did shoot a few few still images along Connecticut Avenue at Dupont Circle North I resumed my video walk at the corner of 17th and Q Streets. And proceeded south to P Street, east to 14th through the Logan Circle area and south on 14th Street to Thomas Circle.
