It seems that now is the time of neighborhood festivals. There have been a spate of them in the last few weeks in D.C. and surrounding areas. Saturday was Clarendon Day, celebrating that part of Arlington. I could make snipey remarks about how everyone in Clarendon is a yuppy or some such business, but instead I’d rather show some photos from the event.
I think neighborhood festivals are a great idea – bring people together, give local businesses a chance to reach out to the community, things like that. Mostly it’s good times. Plus, festivals are a great place to practice street photography. There’s a whole buncha people, lots of stuff going on, and most people aren’t even going to notice that you’re snapping a camera in their face.
I also took lots of pictures at the burrito eating contest, but that’s a post for another day (perhaps tomorrow!).
And, naturally, there were doggies.
I’m going to end with this selection of incredibly bland-looking clothing. There was an entire stall’s worth of this stuff.
