Catching Up

So I've done the digging and found a bit of stuff I've meant to post. Next batch will be images from my phone. You might be surprised at the shots I get.

I'm gonna try taking pictures of people more. (not the sly shots either) Lets face it though, my specialty is scenery and the candid event images.

See the world through my eyes...

Summer Fests 09

I did get out to enjoy the Festivities of Summer in Chicago. Noticed I haven't been taking as many photos as I usually do, so my apologies if I didn't have enough for your taste.

From Blues Fest 09

You all know the drill, click the pic to see the album. Any feedback that is not outright rude and negative is most certainly welcome.

From Taste of Chicago 09

Any images can be sold to print! Just let me know which one(s) and we'll make that happen. (e-mail admin@lashon.org and include which picture and what size, stamp will be removed)

From House Fest 09

Summer is NOT over! Also noticed my son, Tristain/Tigger also has THE GIFT OF PHOTO! Will be posting his shots as well. This makes 3 generations y'all, I'm rather proud of my little genius!

General Question

In case I hadn't made it known, I'm one of those type to take a picture of something I think is HIGHlariously funny. Usually its people.

The question I pose is, do I start posting those images here?

Another question, do I move this cute little blog to my official site? Cause I'm feeling like it's time to make that move.

Don't forget, pass the blog link onto your friends. I'm sure plenty of them can appreciate these beautiful photos as much as I do. *smile*

Beach Shots

Finally, warm weather in Chicago! So I have beach shots once again...


Gonna have to download that picasa program so I can upload them all in one hit, LOL.

Gathering My Thoughts

I know I've been missing in action round here. That hasn't been for a lack of images to share.

taken with my camera phone

I've recently done a shoot with me behind the camera instead of modeling. Gotta get that batch together and sift to pick the good gems.

Quotable - Hijab & Religious "Requirements" of Women

"At that moment, I saw how religious opinions become rules, and how rules become cultural norms, and how norms can extinguish the bright light of individual truth."
- Andrea Useem

I applaud her for sharing her story. Through this article I found her story. I too am a typical westerner that really had no clue as to the why of east indian clothing for women in this respect. I too had presumed it as a negative form of oppression for women. While it is duly noted that men too are required to wear coverings that are modest, they are not so negatively forced to adhere to. This goes on the list of sexist groups in religion which is why I am not a participant of any form now. Men are not looked at with disgust or treated with disrespect if they are not covered as their texts would describe. Men are not treated like animals if they are 'caught' with those of the opposite sex that are not family. I could be, at this point, jumping to another area of such a thought, but I should hope that my overall point is understood.

Like religious texts for otehrs, this quote for me, is beyond a gospel. The standards of religious pasts and how people perceive them in today's times, I often shake my head at. I can't really say much more because my mind is jumping between the difference of religious vs social standards and it's all becoming a blur. Yes a lot they seem to be one and the same. Help me speak further on this, please.

In case anybody was wondering what I do practice, it's a general respect for all things. Respect life. A basic principal that I'm certain most if not all religions stress of it's followers. At least till it gets to the part that if you don't follow us, you'll suffer eternal torture when you die, LOL.

This concludes my prolific thought of this moment.

quPeace & blessings.

A Camera

My guy dug this up from his storage. Loaded with film, it still works. No lens cover so first image is a waste. It's rather exciting to see older devices. I actually squealed when he said it was good.
