The Imaginary Fort

The Imaginary Fort is a place in Bethesda where a few friends of mine operate the company called Imaginary Feet. Tom McLeod, Emil Anticevic and Patrick Jackson (yep, just shot his wedding) run a tech operation that develops iPhone and web apps, among other things. It's also a place where I go to complete the grueling work of a freelance photographer when I'm not out shooting.

This office employs a strict no-fun policy and anyone who enters soon becomes a 100% productive 9-5 drone. Efficiency rules. Tom, Emil and Pat are the main characters with occasional appearances from interns (what up Perri), ex-interns (Dexter and Tyler "Sham-Wow" Shambora), spouses with no twitter followers (Jenny), affiliates (LowKey and Meredith) and a social media maven (Kate "hope you come back" Gardiner).

Welcome to the Fort.

Tom, always prepared.

Old blueprints from the previous occupant.

@Tom I think there is a little more than 0 chance. Two words: Chase Budinger.

@Linda what's with planting basil...is that the new trend?

@KC no fun to be had at all...in fact the new name for the office is "Oklahoma" HAHAHAHAHA!
