There is no murder like a snowed-in murder

Spending the day at #natgeophotoseminar. Right now, this is Chris Johns in conversation with Anna Sale. It is ok to be jealous.

Over the past year I have been slowly but steadily working with the @thelinehotel team to curate approx 3000 pieces of art for the new hotel they have been building in Adams Morgan. The final product will include some great work by local heroes @gokateshoot, @donniegerald, @ellievanhoutte, @bethhoeckel for @society6, @hughandcrye, @rose_inks, and more (including some hand sketches by me), and some superstar sourcing by @pandaheadmorgan all beautifully framed by our friends at @Framebridge. Today, art install begins. YES! To celebrate + For a sneak peek check the feature in @cntraveler

First day down. Still not hangry (famous last words). āœŒ to go. Just #jrink it.

@xerikloften and I worked on a fun BYT Year In Numbers feature, featuring facts both real in real life and real in our hearts and minds. The whole shebang is live on now. The @brightestyoungthings team kicked so much butt this 10th anniversary year, I can't even thank them enough. So, I am posting on instagram about it. Typical. #BYThings

Bought a wedding dress. Saw some great art. Now treating myself to the potomac martini with a side of racial and sexual satire. Overall, a good day. āœŒ

Thank you to @annamcalpinemeyer, @photobyjeff, @jason.cauley and @ellievanhoutte for taking some of these
