Visual exploits to my otherwise ordinary life. 

Come With Me: July Art Walk

Wednesday I get a group text, "Y'all want to go to the Art Walk?"  I immediately reveled in the opportunity to use my camera and so I answered "Yes!"  I hadn't been in a while and I figured I could use the opportunity to clock more face time with my cousin Brittany before she moved away to Texas. 

So, I got myself dressed, grabbed my camera and headed downtown to join in on the festivities. 

Come along with me and see what I saw.

Walking up, I ran into some of my family.  

My Cousins:  Nkenge, Reshika, and Zamaria.  Dunno who that guy with the dashiki on is. ;-)

 I've never been to this place, but with a name like Magnificat I may see myself there soon.  Who doesn't love coffee?

Simplicity is really where its at.  Really.  Keep it simple, sweet, and smart.  Awkwardly in love with this photo.

Came across this unexpected gem.  My niece.  So hard to believe she will be entering her junior year in High School.  BTW, I owe her $100 for making A B Honor roll.  I'm so proud of her.

Loves you.  Forever, Always.   Never stop being you, not even for a moment.

 Thinking I may print and frame this.  What do you think?  I think this would look pretty fly in a frame.

 My cousin Najah, who's birthday is the same day as this post.  Interesting fact:  There are 3 Cancers in my life.  Whom I assume were strategically placed into my life by the universe and who's brithdays are each 7 days apart.  Coincidence?  I think not.

Happy Birthday Cuzzin!  I love you old lady.  You ready for AARP yet? LOL!!

And an unexpecting like from an unexpecting picture taker of an awkard guy, who unexpectedly liked this portrait of himself.

 

Thank you.

  

I hope you all enjoyed this post.  I wanted to share the overall mood of my day so I wasn't too centered on an aesthetic.  Honestly, That's more of my style anyway.

I look forward to brining you guys on more of my journeys through my "Come With Me" journal entries.  If you like these sorts of posts, please be kind and leave me a comment.  And if you haven't already, be sure to check out my new online store.  Help a brotha out!  ;-)
