Here is a map of DC gun violence over the last month or so. We were discussing it at dinner tonight (Gen Tso's Chicken Not minners) and talking about where we were and the people we encountered during the day. I have marked the areas we walk and count trash. The pictures of trash were taken for my upcoming testimony on new legislation.
Trash in streams is a socio economic issue. My daughter and I work in the very poorest and most violent parts of DC. I believe in my work and I believe in making even a small urban stream like this healthy for black nosed dace and water snakes.
I have the best scientific data on the east coast as far as trash in streams go. Maybe I will post a link to a live broad cast when I testify on the issue.
I am beginning to experiment around on picture editing but I think I need a better camera. Of course, a camera that can go hunting and that you can risk a dunking in the stream is not an expensive camera. That is probably a stupid attitude being as I think nothing of taking $1K binoculars, spotting scopes and rifle scopes hunting and then use a $50.00 camera.
