Amateur Photography

Here’s some random pictures I’ve taken that I thought I’d share with you all. I love photography. It’s definitely something I want to dig deeper into!

Zimbabwean Art Exhibit

I found this in the middle of Hartsfield – Jackson Intl Airport. Most of the sculptures focus on the importance of Black womanhood in Zimbabwean society. The exhibit reminded me of my great-grandmother. Her tough love and strong spirit was felt by everyone she knew — kind of like the women in these sculptures.

I take a lot of photos of my friend’s pets. Here are some of the best ones:




New Orleans 






I had to take these photos as a part of a scavenger hunt for a DTH blog post. It was pretty cool. I enjoyed this piece as well as taking the photos! Each find in the hunt had different instructions. I attempted to fulfill all of them but, since I was alone, that didn’t always pan out.

Imprint – include a shoe in your photo with the shoe impression. Success.
photo 2
Yellow brick – include the yellow brick and a body part in the photo. Success.
photo 3
Hooked up – photograph a personal item that is suspended from one of the hooks. Success.
photo 4
Fauxn – photograph someone using a mobile phone and include the pay phone in the picture. No success…but he is using the payphone!!

Risers – Photograph someone from behind the stairs. Success.
