Catching Up: Earth Day Climate Rally, Oatlands 2010, A Pop-Up Project, website design

April went by without an update, so I'm going to do my best to pick things up a bit now that we're a few days into May. It's not that I've been sitting on my rump, but still... more posts would be nice, right? Anyway, enough with the apologies -- let's just get right to it.

Last Sunday (the 25th of April), a number of celebrities and musicians descended upon the National Mall for an Earth Day concert and rally for the climate. Over 200,000 people attended the festivities, which I documented for DCist. A few more pictures can be found on Flickr.

The weekend after Easter saw our annual trip out to Middleburg, Virginia and the Point-to-point races at Oatlands Plantation. The weather could not have been nicer, which was a welcome change from the overcast skies and chilly temperatures we've had in years past.

On March 26th, I shot a gallery opening for Brightest Young Things at the former Numark Gallery here in DC. For the post on BYT (and a few more pictures), click here.

Finally, perhaps the biggest contributor to my not posting as often was the design and production of a website for a friend and a project he's working on (flipping a boutique condominium building in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of Washington).
