The family receiving a free meal during the government shutdown is a good find that localizes a national issue while remaining visually interesting with the colors in the restaurant. The composition and cleanliness of the stairs photo makes this one pop-- good hustle on the photographer getting his name. The dog jumping is a solid moment with good composition and timing.
