I spent nearly a third of my life living in and around Washington, D.C. There was always something happening. On occasion, I’d actually have my camera with me. (My kingdom for a rangefinder M9.) In the course of my job commitments, I also spent a fair bit of time in and around our armed forces. When it was permitted, I made sure to have my camera along.
