inspired by “some places”

I recently went to a Polaroid Gallery show in Commerce Texas called ‘Some Places‘ at A Space in downtown Commerce.

My friends and I took off one afternoon for an adventure including stopping by cool locations along the way for inspiration before arriving to the gallery show.

Next to A Space was an AMAZING asian food restaurant, which is where we enjoyed dinner together.

Was so INSPIRED by Tyler Blake Tyndell’s show that I went out and purchased the Polaroid ProPack.

Really wanting to do a series of  photographing strangers with polaroid film.

celtic rock

Was recently at the State Fair of Texas and heard the most AMAZING music while I was there – celtic rock.

The Killdares ARE celtic rock.

If you get the chance – check them out.  They were behind the Cotton Bowl.

The Killdares

a moment

Saw this man, having a moment, from the other side of the fence.

I couldn’t get to him to add HIM to my collection of strangers.

He caught me eye just the same.

Environmental Portrait

I recently took THIS environmental portrait of a Drag Queen at a car wash fund raiser for Big D Roundup.  They met their financial goal.  : )

They were EXTREMELY open for having all kinds of pix taken.  I did the 35/85 experience – Nikon D4 with only my 35 & 85.  I’m glad I did – my 2 FAV lenses.

stranger #53

This is James Carroll, stranger #53.  He is the grounds keeper of Greenwood Memorial Chapel (used to be Greenwood Baptist Church) & the Greenwood Cemetery in Weatherford Texas.

He invited us in to this quaint little chapel and began to tell us the history.  He was born in 1942 and has lived in Weatherford his entire life.  We had so much fun just sitting and visiting with James.

Blessed are the flexible

Be flexible and put other’s needs above your own.

“If you’ve gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if His love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care—

then do me a favor:  Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends.

Don’t push your way to the front; don’t sweet-talk your way to the top.

Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead.  Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage.

Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand.”  Philippians 2:3-4 (The Message)

Take time for people, spend a moment to connect.

LOVED connecting with THESE “strangers” while riding the DART rail system.  EACH of them had a wonderful story.
