6. November 2019
Was invited to Washington DC attending a conference the day after election-day Tuesday, November 7, 2000. Arrived late night, no cheers and victory parades. The city was numb, bars crowded by people staring at tv monitors till early morning hours for final results. On Saturday I had the chance to stroll around the White House, Washington Monument, the War Memorials towards Lincoln Monument using my first digital8 Sony handycam with 100xdigital zoom and plenty of digital filters enabling you to create effects like Akira Kurosawa did in his movie „Dreams“.
