Wanderlust in DC and Maryland
This has been something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time. Every since last summer, I really wanted to go on a trek across our nation’s capital and take copious pictures. It would, I thought, be a great way to explore the city as well as get some practice in photography.
But I ran out of time and was never able to go on that summer photoshoot. I vowed to do it at some point. When I went home last month, I knew it would be the last time I’d be back on the East Coast for a long time, so I enlisted two buddies from college to join me: Derick and James.
((Go check out Derk’s tumblr: http://derkgs.tumblr.com/ He’s an amazing photographer, and I am constantly jealous of his skills. The blog has more pictures from the photoshoot, some of which I have reposted here with his permission.))
Most of the photos you see in this post will be from Matchbox in Rockville, where we ate dinner that night. See more photos below:The above photo is the Matchbox Mozzi Carozzi.
Photos from Dinner at Matchbox.
Matchbox is known for their “3,6,9” sliders. How could we resist the huge pile of onion rings on top of the cute little sliders? Between the five of us (baby bro Jeff joined the fray for dinner), these did not last very long.
Matchbox is super popular, so there was a very long wait for food. But we decided we were too tired (read: lazy) to figure out where else to go. So we just waited. And in our boredom, James and I ordered ourselves some beer. What else is one supposed to do after a cold day in Washington, DC?

The following are photos that I took:
The guys I managed to drag into DC with me: James, Derick, and Jon.
Thanks for coming on the photoshoot with me, guys! It meant a lot to be able to hang out with you while I was home for those few days. 😀 (This photo is amazing purely for the fact that I actually managed to capture Derk’s face on camera for once! :D)
