Yeah...its Saturday, but after the horrible week I have been having, I must say that I worked or slept most of Friday...therefore...I am posting this a little late! The lovely Kristine at Random and Odd has requested songs...so being the music nerd I am, I had to play:-) Yes...I shot all of these and culled them from my archive:-)
Remember...click on pic to see it larger
Born in the U.S.A. - Yep...I will lead it off with the mighty Mini-Uzz who was indeed...born in the USA...specifically, West Texas. The building behind him is the new Omni Hotel that is being built in downtown Fort Worth and yes...he is holding a camera...he actually has a pretty nice eye:-)
The Black Crowes - Yeah...its NOT an actual song, but he is actually singing a song! That would be Chris Robinson of the Crowes, who I shot at a concert festival I did work for last year. While I am not a huge fan of theirs, this did turn out to be a pretty cool shot to show off:-)
Dancing Queen - I shot this during the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo this past January. Ballet Folklorico is a wonderful group of dancers in the area and I love shooting them...the colors, the motion and pageantry tend to lend itself to great photos!
When you kissed my lips with my mouth so full of questions
My worried mind that you quiet
Place your hands on my face
Close my eyes and say
That love is a poor man's food
I could hold you in my arms
I could hold you forever
Hurt - This is a photo of a mother and child who were refugees from the New Orleans hurricane. I shot this when buses were brought into Fort Worth. It was one of the few times that I had been moved to tears while covering a story, but the power of the overwhelming human tragedy was pretty strong. Despite the sadness of the situation, I thought this was a beautiful portrait of two people who still have each other to hold onto.
World Waits For You - While the song from Son Volt does not have much to do with weddings, the title does convey the enormity of how her life will change once she walks through that door. The song does have a beautiful message:
"Find strength from the words
Of those that went before
Take what you need
But leave even more"
Where Do the Children Play - Cat Stevens - This is a shot I took while covering a block party in the north side of Fort Worth. It was just one of those shots that you turn and see the colors and see the action and fire with nothing but instinct. What I love about this pic, is the tilt, the perspective, the drenched colors and the candid nature of a moment in time.
Well...that is it...did you play?? Let me know!!! And I always love to hear from others:-)
