Snap on Sat
There are a ton of cool,free events going on this Saturday. Whether you're interested in beer, artisanal food or walking, there's something for you. But if you're a shutterbug, take advantage of Snap-Shot-City. Snap-Shot-City is basically a photo treasure hunt, taking place in cities all around the world. It started last year in more than 30 cities with 500 people. This year, 5,000 people are expected to point and shoot.
The point of the day is to interpret 20 different themes in your city. People are encouraged to gather teams of friends and register by midnight on Friday. On Saturday morning, a list of themes will be posted on the Web site. Use that list to roam around town capturing everything from monuments to small acts of kindness between strangers. It's a chance to see new neighborhoods, enjoy the outdoors, be an artist and show other people what you love about Washington.
Once the photos have been compiled and uploaded, you'll have the chance to share people's experiences from Rio, Sydney, Tampere, London, Tokyo and all over the world. If enough people in D.C. join up, there will be an afterglow party where participants can share photos, stories and perhaps a few drinks. Just don't drink too much and lose your inhibitions: You never know when there is an aspiring photographer around. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or check back at the Web site.
