  • 2013 General Events Around DC
  • Summary: This year's photos are somewhat sporadic owing to several absences from DC, so that, for example there are no images from the time of the shutdown.  The photos also cover a more general range of topics than I've usually done, and they seem to skew towards liberal/progressive events.  Objective is do better in 2014.  Let me know if you have a relevant event in DC area.
