Temperature was around 6 degrees while I was taking these photos at 8:15 AM on Thursday, February 19, 2015. I caught the light just after the sun had topped the ridge to our East here in South Knoxville. I shot photos for about 15 minutes and had to retreat back to the warm house because my exposed finger tips were starting to catch the the first painful feelings of frost bite. I think some of the photos reflect the sharp teeth of Mother Nature’s cold bite this morning. I hope you enjoy them and are nice and warm wherever you are today.
This was a great panel of speakers at a monthly meeting by a local Hip Hop group known as The Flow. I covered this relevant story for the Knoxville News Sentinel on Saturday January 25, 2015. I was amazed at the conversations and remarks of the people who have lived thru Selma and now Ferguson and the racial conflicts that exists in our great country. I am unbiased on these issues and know people do really incredible things to one another . . . I just try and treat everyone equally and expect the same for me. These images show how the young and the old are trying to get together and learn from each other.
Here is a sample of the family portrait session I did with a family in Tellico, TN last Friday…If your family would also like me to travel to you and bring outside lighting equipment to make perfectly lit photos at your place just let me know. I will be happy to capture the love
