TEDx MidAtlantic 2011 was held on October 29, 2011 at Sidney Harman Hall in Washington, DC. I was lucky enough to be invited shoot this great event. The day was filled with inspiring and provocative presentations, and I know all the 800 attendees left with their minds being sufficiently blown. More after the jump.

My friends Erin and Justin asked me to take a few engagement photos for them. This is my first time doing something like this, but I think they came out looking pretty good. More after the jump.

I also swung by the Tea Party protest over on the House side on Sunday.
The Tea Party protest was much rowdier and much less organized than Saturday's anti-war rally.
Compared to the anti-war rally, there were no mass-produced signs being passed out to everyone, there were no signs of "professional" activists or "community organizers," no staged photo ops, no charter buses bringing folks in from other cities, and things felt much more...organic. I didn't see any signs of "astroturf," instead I was surprised by how chaotic things were. I would also note, I didn't see or hear any racist or bigoted comments like those reported from Saturday's larger Tea Party protest.
While the Tea Party definitely felt like true grassroots, the elites, aka Republican Members of Congress, did try to get in on the action. I saw Reps. Michele Bachmann, Steve King, Jean Schmidt, and (I think) Joe Wilson all speaking to the adoring crowds, often whipping them into a frenzy.
You can see the rest of my Tea Party pictures here.
I took a bunch of pictures at the anti-war rally and march from this past Saturday down by the White House. Talk about a complete circus.
You can see the rest of my photos from the rally and march on Flickr in my Faces of the Anti-War Movement photo set.
