surrender nothing

Several weeks ago, I started a workshop that runs the duration of the summer, about half shooting sessions, half lab sessions.  The goal is to shoot daily, locally - even I cannot 'travel' to shoot every day, much as I wish I could.  There is nothing I would love more than to do photography, each and every day - at least that's how it feels, the grass is always greener somewhere else, yes?  The next best thing to traveling to great locations seemed to be to learn how to shoot what is right around me.

This shot was taken while walking around a neighborhood in Washington, D.C.  I was especially drawn to the slogan - good for the cause of D.C. statehood, and good for my art.
