People; 4700 block of Columbia Pike

This is a bustling section of the Pike. I enjoy observing and documenting the vibrant mix near the busy bus stop.

45th Annual Flores-Gambino Memorial Day Party

For forty-five years, the Flores-Gambino family has held a large old-fashioned Memorial Day celebration at their home on S. 6th Street, in the Penrose neighborhood just off Columbia Pike. Friends, family and neighbors mingle, relax, make note of the contributions of America's service-members to our freedom, enjoy potluck, BBQ, good times and fine homegrown music.

Thanks to Maria "Pete" Durgan and her family for the invitation - and her bass-playing.

Eddie Jenkins "Arlington's most experienced drummer"

Eddie Jenkins, a 93-year old percussionist, sat in with the musicians at the Flores-Gambino Memorial Day Party. Mr. Jenkins is a veteran of the great Bunny Berrigan's ensemble, and was a long-time memeber of the US Army Band. According to his son and other musicians, he is "Arlington's most experienced drummer."

Keeps a clean crisp beat still...
