The dog days of summer aren’t here just yet, but this cleverly framed shot by Mikey Kennedy is making me want to abandon my desk and find a good spot for a nice, long afternoon nap.
We hope to be putting smiles on the faces of about 40 of you tomorrow, when we announce the winners of our 2015 Exposed DC photography contest. Check back around noon, and then join us at Meridian Pint Tuesday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. for a happy hour to celebrate.
We’re counting on you to put some horribly creepy and awesome Halloween images in our pool this weekend, everyone. Put on some comfortable shoes in November, because we’re about to announce a ton of Exposed DC events for you to soak up, including a metro-accessible extended run of our InstantDC Fall Review and a quick-round of free photography classes through Knowledge Commons DC. You’ve also got FotoweekDC kicking off next Friday — we’ll have a preview of recommended events for you early next week. Now, on to Friday Links!
