Pride 2017-2

All images Leica M10 and 35mm Summilux FLE

Since Trump’s inauguration, we’ve taken to the streets, camera in hand, to capture the energy he’s unleashed.  The crowds have been determined — to fight back, to remove him, to save the nation and the planet — but it’s been pretty joyful, all in all, from the Women’s March through the Climate March and the smaller ones like last week’s March for Truth.  Even those spontaneous demonstrations following the Muslim Ban were filled with fellowship, if not precisely happiness — people smiled for the camera, they were glad to be counted.

The 2017 Capital Pride Parade today was as if the blight of Trump had not settled upon the land.  It’s always a fun event, but today’s felt like we caught a glimpse of what life will be when this pestilential administration has gone back where it came from.  What a delight it is to live in a city with such a large and dynamic LGBTQ community, and their thousands of friends, gay and straight, who come out each year to show their true colors.

March For Truth-4

Six months in, with the damage of the Trump presidency more obvious by the minute, the resistance will not let up.  On a hot summer day in DC, crowds still came out for the March For Truth, the protest organized around the principle that the President of the United States, his family, his staff, and their collusion with the Russians should be properly investigated.  This will be a big week on that score.  We believe our Saturdays will continue to be organized around capturing this steady resistance.

At The Climate March In Washington

Climate March-13

Another week, another demonstration, this one a big one.  The contrast in weather from last week’s March for Science couldn’t be greater, and of course at the Climate March, here on the last weekend of April, the temperature topped 95.  At first, as the marchers came off Capitol Hill with precision and linked arms keeping photographers back, it seemed like a portent of what would happen if the Left ever won, such a difference from the joyous and anarchic demonstrations taking place since Trump’s inauguration, a long 100 days ago.  But things soon loosened up, and today’s march — big crowd, even in the heat — soon took on the same joy and energy as others before it.  Here are some images in our ongoing documentation of Washington demonstrations in the Age of Trump.

The Peaceful Spot In Georgetown That Is The Setting For George Saunders’ “Lincoln In The Bardo”

Today is the pub date for George Saunders’ first novel, Lincoln In The Bardo, which is set in Oak Hill Cemetery, above Georgetown.  In the novel, the spirit of Willie Lincoln, dead at age 11 in 1862, exists along with others in that netherworld between life and Buddhist reincarnation.  President Lincoln, convulsed in mourning, visits his son, and is observed by the other spirits.  We have visited Oak Hill Cemetery many times, and it is situated next to Dumbarton Oaks, its front entrance looking down upon Georgetown and the Potomac, its back acreage looking down upon Rock Creek Park.  It is a gorgeous, peaceful spot, and a lovely place to visit on a Sunday afternoon in turbulent times.  All images Leica M10.

The New Normal: Third Consecutive Weekend With Anti-Trump March In The Nation’s Capital

And so it came to be that for the third consecutive weekend, Washington was the scene of large, peaceful protests against Donald Trump’s presidency.  Last weekend saw a spontaneous demonstration arise in the aftermath of his attempted ban on Muslims and refugees.  The weekend before saw The Women’s March, wherein 500,000 people took to DC’s streets.  Today’s rally and march were the result of a Facebook call to assemble at 1:00 outside the White House — and by our count, more than 50,000 people showed.  Families, couples bringing their dogs, a diverse crowd united in opposition to what’s happening. What follows are photos documenting the crowd — angry, peaceful, yet joyful at the fellowship, knowing that thousands are willing to stand up to this guy.  The sign that said, “Same Time Next Week” will likely prove accurate.

For The Second Time In Eight Days, Trump Protests Take Over D.C.’s Streets

We don’t typically march in the streets.  We went 50 years as a Republican, some of those years spent as a spokesman for Ronald Reagan, Jack Kemp, and Bob Dole. But this is a moment in the life of our nation when one must stand up for what’s right.

Last Saturday’s Women’s March On Washington was a joyous, defiant statement on the newly inaugurated president.  Today’s rally in Lafayette Park near the White House was something different.  It was an emergency response to the mind-boggling news that, without any real thought other than hatred of Muslims and a desire to shock the world, the Trump Administration had banned all refugees and initiated the first step in its planned ban on Muslims.  The Women’s March was planned months in advance; this one came about on a few hours notice, announced on Facebook.  The crowd wasn’t joyous, but there was an esprit de corps, a sense we are in this together.  Last week, when we posted images from The Women’s March, we wrote, “We think we’re going to be out in the streets quite a bit in the months and years ahead.”  Who knew it would be only eight days.  Here are some pictures from the event today.
