I love doing meaningful work! I rarely consider photography “work”, but occasionally it requires long hours, lots of sweat, patience and stamina. I love events that don’t feel like a “job”, and this was another one! The Ward 8 Arts and Culture Council sponsors many cultural events in Washington, D.C. in an effort to promote cultural awareness through the arts. On this particular Wednesday, we were able to explore the works of a family of local artists and create masterpieces of our own. All of the events are kid and family-friendly. So art and water it was; no wine. Gateway DC features movies, live music, vendors, food, art and fun for the community. It’s always great to work with and around great people who are just as passionate about what they do as I am.
