A Parade of Red

Today I went downtown into Washington, DC to see the Washington Capitals celebrate their 2018 Stanley Cup victory with the parade down Constitution Ave. With camera in tow, I wanted to capture the spirit and excitement of the fans; there was plenty of press there to capture images of the players and the Stanley Cup, so I focused on the fans and citizens of DC who were out to celebrate the first Washington, DC championship in over 20 years.
