I could do a little dance maybe?
Let's start with the creepy first: Someone arrived at my blog today by googling ("my full name" attorney dc). From Investigative Group Int in D.C. Yeesh. I can do a little investigating, too, sir, so I'd like to say a hearty hello to my future (non)employer and/or stalker. Hope you enjoyed your stay.
Second - Did you see the big DCist Exposed announcement
today? I couldn't be more excited if I tried. And the big love-fest going on over at Flickr today just warms my frosty little heart. I feel bad that anyone had to be left off that list, there were so many damn good photos, but I do hope everyone makes it out to the reception anyway. I've been looking at all these names and their work for almost a year now, and I'd love to put faces to them finally.
One of the things I love most about this project - and about all the photos submitted to DCist everyday - is how it can open your eyes to the city in such new ways. I saw this great photo by jennverr in the Exposed pool, then walked to work the next day and realized I walk by this door every single day and never noticed it. Now I see it, and it makes my walk through the city that much more interesting.
Also, I'm just thrilled that this is all coming together and that people seem as excited about it as I am. I love organizing projects, though when I get excited about something I want to do everything NOW, which, though it may be helpful at times - such as getting the announcement out almost a week early - probably drives my colleagues a little nuts with my hands-on-ed-ness. Nevertheless, it's all coming together beautifully, and people are already asking me if there will be another show after this one. With all the enthusiasm for this show, I sure hope this will continue on, but that's getting ahead of ourselves. First we have to avoid any catastrophes on the way to the gallery. March 9! Mark your calendar!
