About This Walk

After finishing our coffee and shooting for a half hour at Union Station, we’ll take a leisurely stroll up Capitol Hill to photograph the outside of the Capitol and outside/inside the Library of Congress (no tripods allowed). We’ll then cruise over to Eastern Market to photograph the crowded hall and have lunch at Market Lunch (though you can grab food anywhere in the Market). Bring cash for lunch as many places don’t take credit cards.

Dave Mullen and Mike Koren have been involved with photography for many years, as members of various local camera clubs, teachers at Montgomery College and other venues, and enthusiastic learners and explorers. They have led previous Worldwide Photo Walks in DC, Baltimore, and Cape Cod.

Upload your best Photowalk photo to Kelby’s siteOctober 14th, 2019

If you wish to enter the contest (some cool prizes, but thousands will enter) you must upload your best photo through this website https://worldwidephotowalk.com/ . Log into your account and try to find where to upload, it’s not terribly intuitive as far as I can see. The deadline is tonight. In the meantime you can see what others shot at our Flickr group pool, some very nice work!

Capitol Hill Photowalker Update #2October 4th, 2019

After the Photowalk you’ll have a week to upload your BEST three photos from the day to our Flickr photogroup. Mike and I will choose one to forward to the Kelby Photowalk contest. This will also give you a chance to see other folks’ work from our day of photography. The link is: https://www.flickr.com/groups/photowalkdc2019/ . Please be sure that your name (as you registered with Kelby) is in the description so that you get credit.

Capitol Hill Photowalker Update!October 1st, 2019

I hope that you’re ready for a lovely walk this Saturday, the weather looks to be partly cloudy with temps in the low to mid 60’s. We’ll meet at Union Station at the Starbucks by the main entrance at 9:00 and shoot around the station for a bit before heading up Capitol Hill to photograph at the Capitol, Supreme Court, and Library of Congress. We’ll then toddle down to Eastern Market before having lunch at Tortilla Cafe http://bit.ly/2obG03g (a change from Market Breakfast, which has little seating and a more limited menu). There are, of course, may other places to eat around Eastern Market. There’s also a Metro station there if you don’t want to walk back to Union Station. Other links… if you want to go into the Capitol for a tour: https://www.visitthecapitol.gov/plan-visit ; Library of Congress https://www.loc.gov/visit/ ; the Supreme Court is closed on Saturday so we won’t be able to photograph inside. You can get inspired by what other folks have photographed by searching on Instagram, Flickr, 500px, and other photo sites. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to go through security (no water bottles) at the Library of Congress and if you go into the Capitol. Mike (iPhone) and I (DSLR) will be around to answer questions as well as to shoot, and I’ll give you approximate times when we’ll be headed to various points. You may want to bring a neutral density filter for the water fountains, and a light tripod, though you won’t be able to set it up inside the buildings if you do. I look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
