I was in Washington DC this past August for the Black Data Processing Associates (BDPA) national conference. I was able to get away from the workshops and festivities to take a few shots; unfortunately nobody told me that you can't use a tripod while inside the mall. That reality became very apparent to me when a cop rode up on his bike and told me that it was illegal and that he could have confiscated all of my precious equipment. So here are a few of the legal shots I took during the daytime. The evening shots didn't turn out as well so I'll have to find another option the next time I visit.
