The fantastic Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival is held at Reston Town Center each May. It’s a world-class collection of artwork from around the country, and one of my favorite local events of the year. This year’s festival took place May 18-20, 2018, and I photographed it as a volunteer for the Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE). The festival is made possible by huge numbers of local volunteers each year, and I was happy to be able to contribute to this wonderful fundraiser event.

      Here are some of my photos from the two days that I wandered around the festival. As you may have learned from my recent New York City photos, I love people-watching and street photography. There are so many stories to discover and imagine in a huge crowd of fascinating people.
