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!

Road Trip Part 1 (Mobile, Alabama and New Orleans) by Mohamed Boraie

Since last week was little busy with Wedding and Engagement sessions, I did not have a chance to do a culture event in the DC area. So, this week's blog will be about my travel experience over the summer in the US. 

In June 2014 my wife and I packed our car as full as it could be for our two month trip around the US. Our first leg of the journey was from Charlottesville, Virginia to Palm Coast, Florida, an almost 12 hour drive. We stopped at North Carolina at the visitor center to take a pictures and have lunch.

We got to spend some quality time with the family including helping my wife's little brother get a library card (his first book he took out was Brave New World) and visiting her grandmother. 

Just because we might never have a chance (or a reason) to visit again, we stopped in Mobile, Alabama for dinner and took pictures in front if the USS Alabama.

Then we drove to New Orleans for two nights of music and food. On our last night in New Orleans a gay pride parade went past while we were waiting to eat at Deanie’s Seafood (which has an awesome food...really recommended it).

Till next week!
