My husband has an old 1977 Ford F-250 that was given to him. It's a lovely 70's terra cotta shade of brownish orange. He has a newer, nicer truck, but no, every time we leave the house he's asking me, "How 'bout taking the '77?" I love him, but I don't love his truck!
My husband rescued Sparky several years ago. He was kept in a rabbit cage by his last owner, because she was afraid her kids would step on him. He's such a sweetheart, and I love rescue dogs! Sparky has a very dignified personality, and I think it shows in this portrait of him.

Now, I'll be the first to admit that this isn't the best photograph I've ever taken... but it's Flava Flav! It just makes me laugh... that big old A&T clock around his neck is ridiculous! I took this photo when I was interning at the Carolina Peacemaker in Greensboro. I got to photograph some really neat stuff while I was there, and had a lot of unique experiences, to say the least!
At Randolph Community College, every student starts out on film. My first camera was a Bronica medium format, which was used for the majority of my first year photography. In our second semester though, we learned how to photograph using large format cameras... the kind where you have to have a blanket over your head! I set up a little table-top studio in my apartment, using natural window light and a bounce card to photograph my pearls for a portfolio assignment. It's one of my favorite images from my school years.
