Levine School of Music Gala

April 26, 2013--Washington, DC--Since 1976 The Levine School of Music has provided the DC community with music education and enjoyment. This non-profit depends upon contributions in order to serve its students.  Each year they host a gala to highlight their accomplishments and showcase their students.

Photo Notes:  During a stage rehearsal, the three youngest performers were a bit nervous and reserved.  Their parents were watching and each performer was a bit shy.  I was trying to get them to show some emotion.  As a homage to Phillippe Halsman, I asked them to jump.  So in one, two, three!  Jump!!!

2013 Cherry Blossoms

April Cherry Blossom Season- The Annual Cherry Blossom photo season provides so many opportunities to make images.  It's about timing and luck with the light. Usually I try early morning, less people and you can find parking. Hopefully one year I will get a glowing sky........This year the Washington Monument was surrounded by scaffolding to repair damage from an earthquake.
