WASHINGTON, D.C. — Red taxis zoom through the busy streets, honking noisily as drivers hurry during rush hour. Brisk winds creep underneath the scarves and coat sleeves of pedestrians roaming the streets of the city. Fall leaves drift to the ground, joining the layer of orange and yellow blanketing the sidewalk between the columns of trees.
While traveling to the nation’s capital to attend the JEA/NSPA Fall Journalism Convention, a national conference, Harker students and chaperones also toured the city, visiting different museums and monuments and photographing the day-to-day lives of locals and tourists.
The photo package below highlights our experiences in the city, both at tourist attractions and in the busy streets. This is the bustle of Washington, D.C.
