Join the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. and architectural historian and large format photographer Bill Lebovich for tips of the trade for creating stunning architectural photography. Building on his extensive experience with HABS/HAER photographic documentation projects, this two-hour workshop will offer points of interest to both experienced and novice photographers looking to capture Washington, D.C.’s built environment.
Using examples from the extensive collections of the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., Library & Collections Director Anne McDonough will offer tips on how to organize digital photography files and suggestions on compiling the documentation necessary to make your contemporary photography work a possible resource for your descendants, future historians, and repositories such as the Historical Society.

Montrose Park

Montrose Park is an eleven acre park in Georgetown at R and 31st Streets,NW,which is part of Rock Creek Park.  Sarah Louise Rittenhouse,who lived in Georgetown, gave the money to acquire the land to assure that it remained open land, rather than be developed.

Montrose Park,the adjacent Dumbarton Oak Park, and Rock Creek Park are units of the National Park Service.IMG_1522 (1).jpgIMG_1522.jpg
