I had some time off last weekend (rare) so I spent saturday hanging with the “Occupy D.C.”(local version of “Occupy Wall Street”) protesters that I am sure everyone has heard about in the news lately. But since I have to sort through about 1000 photos I took that day, that post will have to wait a bit longer for me to put up. Besides, I don’t want to leave out any details of me sitting in on the meetings, hanging out at the rally, following the march, eating food from all over the world from the “Taste of D.C. Festival”, and oh, almost getting doused with pepper spray while nearly having about five thousand dollars worth of gear snatched off my neck. Having said all that, the next few posts will be a bit light, even though they are shots that I have been meaning to put up anyway. The photo above is from a place called “The Old Lucketts Store” which is an old, very large house that is crammed full of antiques, designer pieces, architecture from old buildings and everything in between. There is stuff spilling out the house onto the huge wrap around porch, and into the yard where there are huts and sheds filled with stuff everywhere. Sheila loves coming here. I’m not too much of an “antique” guy, but I love coming here because from a photographer’s viewpoint, this place has a lot of stuff too shoot and somethings I’ll shoot over and over again because I can become obsessed like that. In the shot above are some fountain pieces that have been there for ever. Every time I come here I always stop and shoot these statues for reasons I just can’t explain. I know our friend Kay would pass out if she saw this place. I also plan to post a series on this old house when I get the time.
