Wont Stop, Can't Stop

itake model: toni-ann

These past few days have been my most challenging and inspirational this summer. For starters the laptop had a virus, literally hours from getting back from the repairs! Yes I'm at a computer lab keeping the blog relevant, and recovering from the worst flu I've ever had in my life. 76 hours of tossing and turning in bed and guzzling down thera-flu, and to think that amidst all of that itake photos est. 1985 was birthed. Can't wait till the laptop and I are 100% again.

PBS: Gospel Explosion

Gospel Explosion collage

Gospel Explosion is one of the events that UF members of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. put on to herald their Blue and White summer week. I was at the event for a while, and then was griped by an unexpected flu. Full recovery is in order, and the laptop has returned from repairs!

itake photos est. 1985

For those who are on facebook I'm sure these pictures are not exactly new to you, if we are friends on fb you've already received an invite to join the group. If you don't know what I'm talking about please click here.

itake photos est. 1985 is my business moniker. One of the main reasons I fell in love with photography is because of the stories and events that lead up to a picture and as I continue to develop as a photographer and human being, this moniker is most appropriate as it has its own story to tell.

What To Have.

Reggie 'igotswag' Laroche

So in light of my laptop crashing this morning [moment of silence here, please and thank you] I posted up this picture of Reggie, one of the groomsmen from Saturday as a reminder more to me than anyone else, that it is what to have regardless of the circumstance or situation: swag.

One of the indigenous products made in Ghana is the Kente cloth. Apparently, the first Kente maker got his queue from the spider and learned how to interweave strings to create elaborate patterns. Back in the day Kente was worn by royalty on special occasions. In modern times, more people wear Kente and I caught two people adorning the sometimes colorful cloth at an event.
