Washington, D.C.’s High Heel Race Keeps Getting Bigger And Better

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on October 30, 2016 by johnbuckley100

high-heel-race-2016We first took our Leica Monochrom and Noctilux down to 17th Street to photograph D.C.’s epic High Heel Race, a drag queen extravaganza taking place each year the week of Halloween, in 2014.  At that time, we published a photo gallery with images that caused a sufficiently positive stir — one of the pics was a winner of the Exposed DC annual contest — that we went back last year and photographed the event again, publishing what we thought were even stronger images.  And so last year, when we launched our sister site, Tulip Frenzy Photography, we made prominent among its galleries one called “High Heel Racers: D.C.’s Ladies Of The Night.” There was no way, therefore, that we could miss this year’s running of the race, and as the pictures below should indicate, the event is only getting better.

Pedestrian At Best

We love Cartier-Bresson’s “Behind The Gare St. Lazare” so much, we have it up on our wall.  Could we have had it somewhere in mind — the repeated form of the dancer and the puddle jumper — when we caught this during the snowstorm?  Or just a lucky shot?

Snow Is Only Good When You Pay For It

My wife believes that snow is only great when you visit it, not the other way around.  We thought of that this morning, in solidarity with our friends in Boston.  It reminded us of how great snowshoeing in Jackson Hole can be — and how awful it is to be in a city digging, digging, digging out from blizzards.  Leica Monochrom, 28mm Summicron Asph, New Years Eve 2012.

The winners of the 9th Annual Exposed DC Photography Show were announced yesterday, and we’re honored one of our submissions was chosen.  There are some wonderful images taken by members of DC’s thriving photographic community chosen for the show, and you should check them out.

The High Heel Race, which we chronicled in late October, is a really fun event.
