This is part of my Anonymous Faces project inspired by victims of domestic violence and those that struggle with addiction and homelessness.  I hope to use it to help those that help the needy.

This bridge is part of Old Route 66.

Someone spilled soda at a birthday party today and I thought it was picture worthy.

this was taken later in the same night at the Sheldon as the Opening Night picture.  this one is one of my favorites.  I felt bad I didn’t know who Howard Hewett was before I got there.  It wasn’t until the next morning when I Googled him that I discovered he was the King of Funk, was in the band Charlemagne and performed on Soul Train.  The event was promoted by Renaissance Master here in St. Louis who represent a broad range of talent for a variety of events.  More pictures of Howard Hewett can be seen in their Gallery at

I just liked this shot.

I love this one.  When I first started wanting to be a photographer I posted that I would exchange services just for the experience.  So I got a call from a gentleman that said he was the promoter of a Jazz concert that was taking place at The Sheldon here in St. Louis and he needed a photographer to document the event.  I was so thankful for that opportunity.  This is one of the first shots I took right after the doors opened and the people started coming in.  I really still don’t even know how to use my camera yet…I mostly just trial and error it…but I was playing around with all the knobs and buttons and managed to capture this and I thought it was so cool.  I haven’t retouched it or done anything to it, I just left it the way it is.

I was practicing my night skills when I captured this one.  this is the view of St, Louis from the McKinley Bridge.  If you look close you can see something in the water…I still wonder what it is…there has been talks of sharks in the rivers lately!

I took this one quite a while back on a day we spent in downtown St. Louis.  This new architecture was located directly beside old architecture…a theater and my son had walked up the ramp to look at the waterfall on the other side and I just loved how massive the structure was next to his tiny little frame.  Again another photo taken with my Inspire.

This was taken with my phone a while ago.  It was an HTC Inspire with an 8mp camera.  Not bad considering a lot of high quality cameras are just 8mp…i miss my phone.  We were at the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln up near Springfield, IL.  Ridiculously hot day, but it was beautiful
