Arlington County Fair Day 2

So I just got back from the second day of photography at the Arlington County Fair. Today was a bit smoother than yesterday and I think I made a lot more progress this time around. Today I think we doubled on how many people we got to pose for pictures for the county. The mission of this weekend is to get people to pledge to use any alternative means of transportation besides their car. The slogan of the program is called the car free diet (very catchy if I do say so myself). As people come in and out of the fair we hand out little free maps for transit and bikes and metro lines so that way people can plan to take trips in other ways besides driving. After we give people the information we ask if they would like their picture taken with the alternative transport they either use or are using. Many people will say no just out of feeling uncomfortable but we do get quite a few who will take pictures with it, so it is nice. It has been easy and difficult at the same time but today was busy so time went by a lot faster. Plus we got to see a free little show by two members of the Harlem Wizards, a trick basketball team I think from DC or something. It was cool, fun, and chill. One more day to go.

Random Movie Fact: In the 2005 film Brokeback Mountain, Afraid that Anne Hathaway's previous films The Princess Diaries and Ella Enchanted would work against her during auditions, the casting director introduced Anne to director Ang Lee as a New York Broadway actress. Ang Lee hadn't seen any of Anne's nor Michelle Williams's previous works before he auditioned and subsequently cast them in Brokeback.

Thanks for the support,
