I was taking a class from Greg Holden of Capital Photography Center in downtown DC. He was teaching "Seeing in Black and White" which was a mix of lecture, discussion, and then, he went with us to the street. We visited Lafayette Park just across from the Whitehouse to experiment with finding the right subjects and content for B&W photos. I think I took a fairly even mix of people and things but these five rose to the top and they are all of people. I'll post more in the days to come of buildings and objects but thought these people were quite notable.
