Silent Rails

One of my FAVORITE things about living an Urban Life-Style is the sounds of the city.
The DART light rail system has been closed since early Friday morning (12.06.13) due to the 2013 ice storm.

These silent rails have been an eerie feeling but the adding of the extra buses has made up for it.

DART light rail is closed.

Gathered moments

We had the BEST time seeing life-long best friends in the Mid-West.
We traveled to Indiana, Michigan & Chicago.  Here is a collection of gathered moments from our very memorable time together.

All images were taken with my new Fuji X-E1.

Heart Walk 2013

I recently got the opportunity to photograph the CEO & COO for Texas Health Resources for a HUGE campaign they are doing for Heart Walk 2013.
Here is the mock-up for the DART bus wrap they did. I think THIS is pretty cool. My NEXT quest is to find THAT bus.  ; )

Hope to see YOU September 7th.

YES!

I was recently on assignment at The Shops at Legacy to document the activities that were going on there.
They had some GREAT music in front of Urban Outfitters for #LegacyLive.

But GREATER than the music was THIS moment …

I have been forever changed

I have been forever changed by Flashes of Hope.
Here you see Kyneicia RIGHT after her mom put that plush giraffe on her head, such a precious moment here, to me.
I got the opportunity to walk around the hospital and photograph the kids who could NOT make it to the auditorium where all the other pix were being taken.

Behind the Scenes

TOTALLY had a blast on the set of Imaginator Squad.
LOVE the idea of children using their imagination to occupy their time – GREAT concept.
A behind the scenes moment here as the kids walk down the street after 2 AMAZING days of shooting.

Urban Excursion

We decided to head out one afternoon to the DART rail and try a NEW place for lunch.
Mama Faye’s BBQ was suggested to us by our post master, so off we went.
Along the way, I decided to take pix of John Brooks to tell our Urban Excursion story.
Had the BEST day.

1 Take Portraits

I am apart of a creative group called The Collective.  Over the weekend we had a black & white film processing workshop.

I chose to take black & white polaroids of everyone with their film cameras. This is a collection of “1 Take Portraits”.

I used FP-3000B instant black & white film and lit them using an IANEBEAM 1000 constant light.

The Collective is a GREAT community of artists.

create. connect. inspire.
