Julie Wiatt
Julie Wiatt moved to Takoma Park with husband “Coach G” Weinstein and son Zak during cicada season May 1987. They (Julie, G and Zak, not the cicadas) were part of a migratory pattern from an Adams Morgan group house. Before coming to this area she was a wanderer, taking photos in St Croix, working on a community newspaper in East Boston, tracking bats in Panama, studying biology and art in New York City. Julie loves the Voice, considering it a wonderful way to know and celebrate Takoma Park and Silver Spring.

  1. Julie, great photo! That’s my girl on the left. What a great parade —
    I figure since this web site says tweet, stumble, etc, it’d be okay to use the photo on my blog, ginger-ging.blogspot.com, crediting you of course.

    How is it possible that with multiple photos of even the smallest parade contingent that there isn’t a single photo of our fairly large group (Unitarian Universalist Church of Silver Spring) which featured Ghanian musician Nana Frimpong and which frequently had audience members joining in to march, sing and clap along?
