    Hey everyone,

    I know I'm new to the forums here (I don't actually have a camera yet, only really posted a "suggest a model" thread) but I live in DC and wanted to clue you in to a really good photography show going on at the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Contemporary Art Museum right now while the meetup will be taking place here.

    I imagine you'll be spending most of your time shooting the cherry blossoms coming up soon and seeing the sights here, but if you're interested in contemporary art and photography, you have to check out the Hiroshi Sugimoto show at the Hirshhorn. Here's the link: http://hirshhorn.si.edu/exhibitions/description.asp?ID=34

    The museum's located at the Orange/Blue line Smithsonian metro stop and next to the Air and Space Museum.

    The show will be here until mid-May. Here's the synopsis:

    Hope you all enjoy your time in Washington. The weather should be just great and if you can put up with wading through all the tourists :p it should be a fun time to be here.

    This does sound wonderful! Thank you for the suggestion. :D

    Yes, you should watch out for a big group of stumbling photographers during that weekend..... don't be afraid, we're harmless! :lol:
