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.

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 learned the ‘cinema effect’ and applied it to this photo I took Saturday Downtown.  First attempt ever, don’t feel to bad about it, my mistakes are obvious, but I have high hopes for whatever I may try to achieve in the future.  Being a part of this blog and seeing all of your great work inspires me to be better.  THANK YOU!  I really appreciate it.

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.
