Recognize anyone? If you recognize specific folks (or other stuff) and I haven't labeled them, please identify them for the world. Click the little pencil icon underneath the file name (just above the picture). Spammers need not apply.
Copyrights: All pictures were taken by amateur photographer Bruce Guthrie (me!) who retains copyright on them. Free for non-commercial use with attribution. See the [Creative Commons] definition of what this means. "Photos (c) Bruce Guthrie" is fine for attribution. (Commercial use folks including AI scrapers can of course contact me.) Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at email@example.com and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.
Specific picture descriptions: Photos above with "i" icons next to the bracketed sequence numbers (e.g. " ") are described as follows:
FRIDGE_200504_013.JPG: Limestone of Lost Legacies
Limestone of Lost Legacies is a mural project to memorialize five teens who lost their lives to gun violence in the 2017-2018 school year in the District of Columbia. The five lives being commemorated are a snapshot of the widespread epidemic of gun violence in the city.
The mural aims to create a space of remembrance and healing for the families who grieve forever. Paris Brown (age 19), Jamahri Syndor (age 17), Steve Slaughter (age 14), Taiyana Thompson (age 16) and Zaire Kelly (age 16) are just five of the many lives in our city that have been lost to gun violence. In the year of 2017, 116 homicides took place in DC. So far, 2019 has been an incredibly violent year, especially in the loss of life of our city's children.
This mural is located here, in a community that doesn't have to deal with teh daily reality of gun violence, for a purpose.
As you walk by the faces of these young people who are no longer alive, remember them and then help take action to make our city safer.

Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
