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.

This is a photo of my nephew Krystopher.  He’s about 8 months old here.  I think he is just the one of the cutest things ever and I love this shot of him!

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!

We had recently applied a chalkboard wall in my son’s room and he and his 3 step-sisters created this chaos of art on it.  It is multi-colored but I liked it black and white.

One of the first pictures I ever took with my Inspire.  It is now on my Google homepage.  I was never so amazed that a phone camera could take such great photos!

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.

It was the beginning of Spring this year and I just got my new camera…a FujiFinepix HS20EXR…not top of the line, but it is a decent enough starter camera for me.  The particular branch belonged to a tree that lives in the front lawn of my son’s Elementary School.  It fascinated me that it started out white but just a few short weeks later it turned pink then green…never did bother to find out what kind of tree it was.  I desaturated the colors just a little to give it more of a classic timeless feel.  Slightly somber.
