Happy “other” Birthday to me and to all of you! Neat Shiny Folk, formerly Curiouser&Quote turns TWO today! I’m gonna say huzzah because it feels appropriate: HUZZAH!!!!!

Here’s an early capture because reasons. It’s supposed to be kind of symbolic, y’know? Like, I’m looking off into the distance because I’m about to go on some journey? Or like how I was missing my own business and then one day decided, I think I’ll blog? 

Anyhow. You all have been awesome. Seriously. Please keep eyes peeled (never realized how gross that phrase is until today) and watch out for a final September update this evening. Tata!

D.C. is such a busy place. Don’t let the empty streets in the middle of the day fool you. There’s always something to be done. That’s largely why most of said streets are empty to begin with.

While playing tourist — yes New Yorkers, I’ve been guilty of this, don’t sue me I have nothing to give you — I couldn’t help but chuckle in appreciation as I watched this traveler hunt for shots. He was so focused, walking around with his camera and squinting, framing up his scene before raising his camera and…Bonjour! Enchanté de faire votre connaissance!

Some folks know I shuffle back and forth between NY and DC occasionally. While I’ve already taken portraits in Chocolate City, this was the first time I’ve ever said I’m a blogger from New York. Yes it’s true… But guys… I’ve been blogging. I can say this. And it means something. Anyhow. Just found out about DCFW. I’m late. Facepalm. As you were. Or weren’t.
