I keep telling myself that I can be social!  I can!!  But, honestly, it is hard.  so every few months or so I check in here and try and post.

for +PortraitTuesday, why not?  +Tana Teel +Laura Balc  are still curators I presume (seriously, I suck and I'm sorry).

in my house I have a wee space that I can drop a 4 foot wide grey seamless down and as long as no one worries too hard about my shooting while sitting/crouching/lying on furniture then they're welcome to sit with me for a portrait.  :)

Annnnnyway, I hope you are all doing awesome.  And I mean that.

Earth Hour was awesome.  Of course, it was more like Earth Week over here but that's cool too.

Brothers

two gentlemen I had the pleasure to meet on a beach in Toronto.  The Stranger theme for this week's portrait tuesday is perfect for me because I tend to shoot people I've just met or approached on the street.  

These young lads were visiting Canada, I believe.  The language barrier was pretty large but it was fairly obvious to them I wanted to take their photo and they were extremely nice to allow it.

Man do I love this - Ingrid Michaelson puts that voice on such a fun, playful song that she should probably get the kind of chart action that she deserves BUT then she went and made a totally kick ass video to go along with it.

People are already getting bunched up at the (near perfect) shot for shot recreation of Palmer's simply Irresistible  which is a shame because, while it might drive attention to the awesomeness of Girls Chase Boys it is clouding an otherwise excellent entry for Ingrid.  

"Let's not make it harder than it has to be" indeed.
