Photos are not just light captured, they are stories preserved for the Generations to follow. Pictures don't lie, even if they "stretch" the truth sometimes.

Well today is big girls birthday, so of course Dad pulls out the camera and takes photos. Does she like them? Probably not but so what, this is what Dad does and she has no choice…LOL. Happy 17…..(going on 60)

Here is a story of perseverance. A friend of mine Shawnee had a serious fall last week while training and sustained superficial temporary scars. Instead of letting it get the best of her she got the best of it and is using the scars as a lesson in life for others to learn from about listening to your inner self. Follow her story here and this is a caption from her facebook page:
 "I’VE FALLEN AND I’M CHOOSING TO GET UP" Watch as I talk about a "run" that went terribly wrong but has taken me on the right path toward deeper healing, understanding and IN-Lightenment. Beloved, There is a message, a blessing and an opportunity in everything."
This is the link to the video she posted!

And this: “SUPERFICIAL WOUNDS / WALK IN THE LIGHT WITH ME: On Saturday, August 30, 2014, I fell while training for a half marathon and sustained what medical professionals call “superficial” injuries to the face, hands, arms and legs. When the incident first happened, I immediately thought about cancelling the book launch because of the damage to my face and body. BUT then SPIRIT spoke and I released those ego-based thoughts and got right back on track. I’m STILL STANDING, GROWING & GLOWING IN THE LIGHT. (Check out the Pictures taken by Ian Lyn Photography. Thanks for your visionary mind Ian) Beloved, There are two definitions of superficial that I would like to share with you today: 1. existing or occurring at or on the surface. 2. appearing to be true or real only until examined more closely YES things happen and we can be mentally, emotionally, physically or mentally scarred by them. YES we can experience painful, wounding or traumatic situations in our lives that can scare the pants off of us. HOWEVER, we can “choose” to heal and “choose” to call them what they are instead of dramatizing them and allowing them to dictate our futures. BELOVED, What “SUPERFICIAL” wounds have you sustained and MAINTAINED that you are allowing to take you over and keep you from stepping from the darkness into the LIGHT? HAVE YOU PURCHASED YOUR TICKETS FOR MY BOOK LAUNCH ON Sunday, September 14, 2014 from 3-7pm? Come out and “Walk In the Light With Me”…..Photos Courtesy of Ian Lyn Photography: http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fianlynphotography.tumblr.com%2F&h=RAQFR67u0"

Nothing much to caption here, I am just trying to hammer out a photo style that I am incorporating into my business. I could NOT post the results, but then I would never get the feedback and critique. Tell me what you think!! Under my Umbrella-ella-ella-eeehh!

humansofnewyork:

“They are taking control of the water supply. They are breaking dams, and flooding crops, and destroying the food supply of an entire country. They are forcing hundreds of thousands from their homes. It seems that there is a hand behind all of this. They are very calculating. They are making their moves very carefully to destroy the human soul. They want to rob an entire people of food and water and homes, as if to wipe them from the pages of history. And when they take the homes from these people, the children have no place to play. The children have no place to be young. No physical space, and no emotional space. They have no place to be a child, so their only frame of reference is war and fighting. And when that’s all they know, how can they grow up to be doctors and teachers? All they can possibly know is the desire for revenge and hatred for their enemies. I wish people would understand that Iraq is filled with intelligent, civilized people. This was the cradle of civilization in the Ancient World. Even the Garden of Eden was here. These aren’t dust covered, nameless refugees being forced from their homes. The refugee camps are filled with architects, and musicians, and teachers.”

On Saturday August 9th, part two of Summer Saturdaze and Nights happened. You will see the second set of previews posted, unbelievable entertainment and variety of vendors. You MUST stop by one of these weekends. This is not your Grandmas East New York!

Every 1st Saturday of August, the Honorable Geoffrey A Davis has a Peace March in Brooklyn called Love Yourself, Stop the Violence March for Peace. I am always glad to be on hand to shoot for this brother, as he was the very first one to recognize me as an artist and feature me in his galleries. I am also proud to call him a friend first though. Here are some highlights and we had a surprise at the end. NYC VJ Ralph McDaniels stopped by to shoot a music video that will feature on his long running show Video Music Box. Stay tuned for updates.

OK, Days 2 and 3, I have been practicing my blurred motion shots more and more and here are my kids. One on a bicycle one on a skateboard. I am going to nail this technique and be real good at it one day!

This is my first time practicing blur motion photos. Shoutout to my photog partner A.T. Miller

Just a beautiful capture of a Brooklyn Summer Night.

He marched down Nostrand Avenue for over twenty years taken on the toughest drug dealers & most violent felons the City of New York has ever encountered. Today, this same Avenue has thriving business with customers waiting in long lines to purchase coffee, bagels, muffins, Etc. The Davis’ Dad, Mom & Brother’s “Love Yourself” Stop The Violence plan of action was successful. Back than, the concern was cleaning up the Avenue. & providing a safer, more healthier environment were people can live in a community in peace. Today the concern is ensuring that peace remains as well as not letting the people who fought hard, lived, marched, prayed, Etc. become priced &/or pushed out from the community which they built. Like Nostrand Avenue (now co-named James E. Davis Avenue) the political landscape has changed & just like Nostrand Ave (James E. Davis Avenue), we continue to need a voice that
respects the history & residents that were here for years as well as someone who knows how to welcome new residents, business owners, Etc.
That voice is GEOFFREY A. DAVIS.

I swear with the placement of the street lamps shadow and her skirt it looks as if she is floating on air…

Rain? What stinking rain..
I am starting to master this technique, this time I did not use triggers or ETTL cord, but Canon wireless and the 430EX. Gotta love OEM equiptment that works well together.

Today I was asked to take photos for the East New York Farms Summer Saturdaze and Nightz. I have TONS of great photos I COULD post but I am leaving them for Catherine A Green. These I just could not resist temptation and show you guys. OMG. I mean I got chills looking at the Black and White. I am sure in the following days I will sneak in one or two more, but these are just a smidgen of what was happening in East New York today.
