Above: This Burning Man dragon float was literally all over town. It passed by my house two times—both of which sparked an instant dance party among my neighbors and other passersby. I’m not lying.
The rally had a remarkably huge turn out. Getting downtown on public transportation was near impossible so I hoofed the 5.1 miles. I could almost see the jumbotron in the distance, but unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get close enough to actually hear anything.
My friend Martha and her daughter.
A guerrilla with a camera.
Not a flattering picture, but here we are!
Love this girl. Notice the guy in the safari hat, scarf and shorts.
USA! I’m obsessed with lens flares (see the rainbow?) even though it is not considered a typical photographer’s best practice.
I had a really good day. The weather was beautiful and the crowds were warm and cordial. It was a fresh break from the day-to-day hustle of downtown life. I hope the people visiting were able to see what an amazing town DC is. It’s not just boring politics all the time, but actually a progressive town that is open to new things. DC is a beautiful city, with gorgeous architecture, wide city streets, large trees, wildlife and even bike lanes. I still don’t exactly know what this march was about, but I will say that in DC, no matter what your gender, race, sexual orientation, union membership, or political status is; you will have a voice here and people will listen.
