Your Guide: Tamon George
We partnered up with photographer Tamon George to bring you a bike tour of our nation's capitol. Here's what he has to say about this city:
Hey all. Tamon here taking you through Washington, D.C. via my lens. I moved to D.C. from Western Canada in 2013. I came for grad school, for love, and for life, and I'm happy to call D.C. my home. In three short years the city has changed before my eyes - some say for good, others say for bad - some are just happy to be along for the ride.
1. Malcolm X Park
My favorite spot in D.C. for shooting subjects is Malcom X Park, with its abundant textures and feels. This area is a photographers paradise.
2. Union Market
Bringing together over 40 vendors, DC's Union Market is the center for culinary treats, art and cultural exchange. On my latest visit I was able to catch the ephemeral artwork of @mrbrainwash, decorating the side of the market.
3. Bistro Boheme
One of my favorite places to get brunch is Bistro Bohem. I love this place so much, it was my pre-wedding brunch spot with my groomsmen.
I pop by H-street for some quick eats or my usual spot, Maketto 1351. H-Street, one of the last remaining spaces for all races, cultures, and people in this city makes it a home for all things creative. It's not so much one particular restaurant or bar that makes H-street unique, it's the unique vibe.
Any visit to DC should include a stop in the Shaw Neighborhood. I recommend a new restaurant which is quickly becoming a favorite of my: The Royal.
6. Locale Workspace
This unique co-working space for entrepreneurs is the perfect place for collaboration and connecting to other creatives. Locale is the heart of DC.
7. Jimmy T's
A close walk from My office is Jimmy T's which serves straightforward and delicious food.
