A Day in Pictures

25 Sep

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I’d love to take a photography class. We have a fabulous new camera (thx mom and dad!), but don’t really know how to use it. I heard about pretty affordable classes at USDA (random), but they are pretty early and during the week. I just don’t think they will work for me.

Today, I saw this great set of posts on the NYT’s The Local Blog that makes me want to find a class even more. They are posting only pictures from one area in Brooklyn all day, calling it Picture Day.  I love it. Scrolling through the shots, taken by the bloggers and submitted by readers, gives such an intense and unique look at the community.

I wonder if I could do something like this in DC. A neighborhood in pictures?

Thoughts?

    Try the classes at the Smithsonian, through their Museum Resident Associates program. Cheaper than USDA and better too! I took one for film cameras and loved it.
