People are Beautiful

People are Beautiful

  Peo­ple are Beau­ti­ful: I don’t think I’ve lived in a place before where peo­ple are so com­fort­able in them­selves— you tell them X thing is cool about them & they’re total­ly fine with let­ting you snap away. Beau­ty inside and out. And have I men­tioned how great…

Nineteen & In Love

Nineteen & In Love

Nine­teen & In Love: I met this sweet cou­ple as they were skat­ing around all alone hold­ing hands at the ATC Ice Fac­to­ry. Hav­ing a cam­era all the time is great, since it allows me an excuse to talk to peo­ple, give them a pho­to of a moment in their lives and learn a…

Joy

Joy: It’s always great to see peo­ple not just slog­ging through a work ses­sion, but hav­ing fun and being great with the cus­tomers. When the our fam­i­ly went to the ATC Ice Fac­to­ry we not only had a great time skat­ing, but also inter­act­ing with these guys. You can still…

Frozen Moments

Frozen Moments

Frozen Moments: The great thing about pho­tog­ra­phy is the abil­i­ty to stop any sec­ond and look at it for min­utes. Dur­ing a recent YMCA Tri­an­gle pho­to shoot, I grabbed a quick photo…just for fun, just for me. This line of kids, all in their own world wait­ing for their…

On Parking, Walking & Families in Durham

On Parking, Walking & Families in Durham

  On Park­ing, Walk­ing & Fam­i­lies in Durham: I’m con­sis­tent­ly amazed that we can park so close to the ATC for free (or up till 6pm, right at the ATC). Try that at any oth­er city. There’s sort of a weird ten­sion in Durham. Lots of places to park (once you get…

Defying Gravity

Defying Gravity

Defy­ing Grav­i­ty: We LOVE the ATC. Frankly, it was one of the things that struck us about Durham when we were look­ing for where to relo­cate our busi­ness & fam­i­ly. It’s just so, well, nifty. Like these blocks over the water­way that kids (and adults) thrill to skip…

Peaceful

Peaceful

Peace­ful: Is there any­thing bet­ter than walk­ing around the Sarah P. Duke Gar­dens to relieve stress. This spot is a lit­tle out of the way, com­ing in the recent­ly redone entrance near the park­ing lot off to the side in the woods. It’s a won­der­ful lit­tle path and makes…

Smiley

Smiley

Smi­ley: As a pho­tog­ra­ph­er, it’s a blast to walk around Durham and find these spots. This wall in down­town is already get­ting ‘his­toric’ as the new fish mur­al is now up on this wall and I believe some new con­struc­tion will be hap­pen­ing here soon?? (I’m new… is that…

Where Am I #1

Where Am I #1

  Where am I? A Durhamite friend sug­gest­ed these pho­tos would make a great scav­enger hunt. Sign me up… that’s a great idea. Just give me a shout and we’ll turn it into a fun event! But till then, I may occa­sion­al­ly post a pho­to like this one. Where am I in the…

Time

Time

Time: Remem­ber hav­ing time just to hang out. Sum­mer, friends, noth­ing too crit­i­cal to do… I real­ly enjoy this sort of street pho­tog­ra­phy, where I’m not just snip­ing pho­tos of peo­ple as they zip by, but meet­ing folks, get­ting to know them and doing pho­tos with their…

The Bull

The Bull

The Bull! We all love going to the Durham Bulls Ath­let­ic Park, and noth­ing is bet­ter than see­ing a home run trig­ger the out­field Bull, right?? Well, we were assigned to pho­to­graph the head of the Bulls, George Habel, and nat­u­ral­ly we decid­ed to put the Bull in the…

Sum­mer Friends: We got to chat­ting with these teens in line at Pelican’s SnoBalls on Rox­boro. I love this age. Just enjoy­ing being with friends, falling in love, goof­ing off, find­ing them­selves. Some­day, they’ll joke about meet­ing a weird pho­tog­ra­ph­er who was new in…

Duke Chapel

Duke Chapel: On our first vis­it to town, we had to go out and see the Sarah P. Duke Gar­dens and Duke Chapel… Some­how this his­to­ry of this image make me want to snap it in black and white. As much as I like to shoot in col­or to have all my options, some times I just…
