Houston, TX - Random Occurences and Chance Meetings.....

Well I had a whole schpeal about whats been going on with me lately but my connection timed out and it didnt save everything that I wrote. So here is the condensed version.

Been putting my break to use before my summer session and UHD begins. Final class before they hand over my bachelor's in Finance!

Been out with James(jfre81) hittin them streets makin it happen. Meet this really cool chick named Jessica. Told her that I thought she was interesting and I wanted to take her picture. She agreed.

Flickr thought she was interesting too and featured my photo on Flickr Explore on 5/8/2011. See the link below and CLICK IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After the photo hit Explore I decided to meet back up with Jessica. We did a full photoshoot. She was great to work with despite being honked at repeatedly, almost being accosted by a filthy bum at BK and dealing with the dirty gritty locations I chose for the shoot. This was my first fashion shoot ever but definitely not the last. View the full shoot here

CLICK MY EXPLORE LINK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Enjoy!

Here's some beats for your journey

Dang dude, shes super hot. On your fifth photo line down, that photo on the very left, the building with red tiles on its roof, where in the world is that? Ive walked every street in downtown dozens of times but have never come across that building.

Eye-catching images, and quite an attractive young woman. Excellent job all the way around.

Nice work! After the first few shots I thought you were giving us a straight-up building tour, but after that, lots of variety.

Thanks. Most of the buildings were shot on my way to the jazz show to meet my friend heidi. Great concert I might add. Her stepdad is the sax player on the far right. Then you get a lot more variety from when me and James went out. I always like hittin the streets with James. We always find some cool stuff and we went and got gyros from Niko Niko's. Its like heaven wrapped in a piece of flat bread.

Thanks. That one is my favorite. I had seen that wall when i was out with James. I thought it was really cool looking. Most of the street art I posted was either on this wall or within half a block of it. I thought the vivid colors would be a good contrast to her pale skin and bleached hair.

Thanks. I will. Of course there is a good chance she might read this herself. I blast out links for these threads on facebook.
