National Gallery of art in DC- the Senegal St.Joesph Gospel Choir by Mohamed Boraie

This Sunday, I went with my wife to the National Gallery of art in DC to attend the Senegal St.Joesph Gospel Choir at West Garden Court. 

I packed my camera and a 50mm lens and headed there around 2pm dreaming about some cool shoots and interesting compositions.

We got there but once I got the concert program my eyes / heart fell after reading the following words:  “photography is not permitted during the concert.”I thought to myself...well it is time to sit down and just enjoy the lovely music. And I did!!

The West Garden Court is a beautiful garden hidden inside the museum and is opened regularly for concerts and events. The beautiful lit indoors garden makes it a unique location to enjoy a performance. 

After the event I roomed around the National Gallery of Art looking for interesting compositions and frames to capture.

Below are some shots I took during my trip back from the concert. 

Till next week!

Fiesta DC by Mohamed Boraie

I started my Saturday with photographing a great wedding for Charles and Morgan at the Barren Ridge Vineyards in Augusta County in Virginia. On Sunday, I went to the the Latin Festival in Washington DC, which is also known as Fiesta DC. The festival took place at Pennsylvania Avenue, between 9th and 14th Street, NW Washington, DC.

The festival was full of street performances, bands, food vendors and amazing latin dancing in the street. 

Enjoy the pictures.

Until next week!
