We interrupt our normally scheduled programming to bring you this message

I don’t have an official name for this project yet. For now, it’s called #Maryland365. No, I’m not taking a picture everyday or something.

For the “categorizers” and lovers of dictionaries, this line of work would likely be called “street portraits.” That is . . . close up portraits, taken on the street, with permission. I’m going to agree with the recent posts by the one and only Charlie Kirk that this project should not be labeled as “street photography.”

The pictures in this project will include a location and, as it stands, the #Maryland365. As of now, I’m focusing on Takoma Park and the surrounding area. I haven’t yet figured out what to do if I end up in DC, which is only a few minutes away. I’ll cross that bridge another day, as finding the correct hashtag doesn’t really keep me up at night. So, welcome to the first post in several. And, no, I do not approve of the ads below. I could pay wordpress to get rid of them, but as of now, I’m going to spend that money on an ND filter.

University Blvd.
Langley Park, Maryland.

    “F” Charlie Kirk. He has all kinds of prepubescent Jap teen girls he zapped with his flash in Tokyo and called it street. Call it what ever you want. Still street. My suggestion: Urban portraiture.

    Also: AdBlock. I swear it works. Pass it along.
