On Saturday, 20th of October, the EyeEm DC Meetup took place even though Hurricane Sandy was looming around the corner. The result: fantastic photos of Washington D.C. you wouldn’t see on a normal day.

Here’s a recap fromMichael Andrade:
The EyeEm meet up was a great way for D.C. photographers to come together to get inspired each other. Everyone had their own unique vision, technique and favorite app to shoot with before they began. Throughout the hours of spending time walking through the streets of Penn Quarter, we communicated various ways to capture what you see through the lens of a mobile device. Whether it was Jim Darling’s charm and balls that helps him go up to strangers in back alleys. Or James Campbell’s ability to take the ordinary light, shadow and lines of a street and turn it into a masterpiece.
We all left learning more about each other and our hometown of D.C.
The true highlight of the day was meeting photographers that we’ve followed online for so long and actually meeting them in real life. Being able to see them in action and seeing how thy create their art was truly worth risking the upcoming hurricane storm.
Thanks again to:
