...i'm also making a change and leaving washington. although i'm moving only an hour and a half away, life for my family will be less stressful and safer. first and foremost it's important my children have a 'quality' school system to attend. washington has provided me the most awesome photographic opportunities i could ask for and an abundance of cultural exposure. somehow, i don't think i would have made it here without DC at my fingertips....those photos are how i introduced myself here over a year ago. i hope you have also found an appreciation for this city through my shots as well as other members from DC who frequent these pages. visit when you can...you won't be disappointed! start watching for chesapeake bay photos after october 1st.
