Hey all. @tamon_ here taking you through Washington, D.C. via my lens. I moved to D.C. from Western Canada in 2013. I came for grad school, for love, and for life, and I’m happy to call D.C. my home. In three short years the city has changed before my eyes - some say for good, others say for bad – some are just happy to be along for the ride. // @brooklynbikeco @withthelocals

I tend to hang around @UnionMarketDC because it feels like home. Food, friends, events and more. A collection of culture and history #UnionMarket has everything you could need. I take many of my subjects around here to shoot. Abundant with textures and feels, a photographers paradise.

A quick ride from my Usual @unionmarketDC hangout. I pop by H-street for some quick eats or my usual @maketto1351 chill. H-Street, one of the last remaining spaces for all races, cultures, and people in this city makes it a home for all things creative. It’s not so much one particular restaurant or bar, it’s a feeling. The street has a feeling, the air has a feeling, the streets have a feeling.

One of closest friend in the city is @carlnard (and past Local). We connected through @instagram and have never looked back. A fellow creative, conscious community member and organizer, the kind of person everyone in the district should know. He’s gunna run for office one day – he just doesn’t know it yet.

The best part of being an entrepreneur is defining your business, your space, and your vision. The culture you create internally is a reflection of the culture you represent externally. We want to feel like family to our clients, so our office feels like home. // @framebridge

A ten minute walk from my office. Jimmy T’s is without complexity or contempt. The necessities I would call it.
