Photo Journal No.8 | Rustic

My eyes have been attracted, and moving towards color schemes lately. I’ve been leaving my camera at home more often, especially ever since I invested in an iphone. I’m not here to say that your cellphones should replace dslr’s, because I would never agree with that statement. But many times I find myself not wanting to carry anything. When my purse stays home, so does everything else. My “phone, wallet, keys”are the only thing that join me. That’s my little mantra before I walk out the door. “Phone, Wallet, Keys, check!”The First image was taken while I was on my way to visit my niece Harlie at her momma’s house. I like how the branches kinda gave it that spooky feel.
I have the best friends sometime I swear. The next image was taken at The New Amsterdam Theater. One of my homeboys, send me a message at last minute asking if I was around the city, he had an extra free ticket to the Broadway musical “Aladdin”. Though I couldn’t really take many pictures. I was trying to soak up all the inspiration I could. I was only wishing I could take photographs, I was hurting on that chair, because I wanted to capture everything. The textiles were gorgeous. All the purples, orange patterns.. I can’t wait to see what I create with all these ideas roaming in my head. It also really made me want to visit Morocco.The last image was taken on a stroll in The Bronx. I was actually headed to Toys R’ Us to buy Yamilet, Jhonny and Lily’s daughter a  gift for Christmas. She loves My Little Pony, and I found some cool walkie talkies with them plastered all the radios. I thought it was pretty cool. Especially since everything else was so frilly, and non useful. I swear girl toys are so wack. When I was younger I used to love going to the boy section. They have remote control cars, nerf guns, all the cool things, while girls got dolls that peed, and toys that looked like an iron and vacuum. Umm, no thank you!
