I GUESS

Good morning ppl!!! I had a random thought that made me realize how real marriage can be. I remember when I was about 14-15, I overheard my Grandfather and Grandmother talking about money. Basically the main reason for this discussion was my Grandmother owing my Grandfather whatever amount of money and when was she going to pay him back. I always remember thinking, “Why does she owe you?! Aren’t y’all married?! Right?!” I think he was proving a point more then to actually get his money back. But now at this age I totally understand why or at least understand enough. When I was younger I had a nice black & white, simple idea of what I thought marriage was or at least should be. But as I got older I realized how color brings complexity to simple ideas and thoughts. Innocence gets stripped from what you think something should be and I guess your only way to stay sane is prove to your childhood thoughts that working to make those thoughts a reality is what you live for…I guess!!

Sorry for the long wait but I had a lot of work to do in my digital darkroom sort of speak. This is the first set of my documentation photos of the small island Bohol, Philippines. The experience of the island, the food, the culture, the people was mind blowing for me. When I got their it was obvious that I wasn’t from there and the Filipino stares made that very clear. Willma, my friend who brought me, told me that most of the people on her island had never seen a Black man only on T.V. She also added that they would remember this for the rest of their lives. It really hit home when she told me that. So my camera was ready as soon as I walked off the plane. Here you are!

I had a wonderful time and again I want to thank Willma and her family for welcoming me with open arms. I can’t wait to go back!! Oh yea much much more to come. Feel free to reblog or repost whatever you like.

Thank You!!

On Saturday September 4th I had the pleasure of shooting a car show with fellow photographer Kyle “Dex” Voorhees. The show was in Linden, New Jersey and I had a great time. I got to see and share the passion people have for their beautiful machines. It was an experience I would love to have again.

Enjoy!
