Daily Dozen – Smirking Men

How do you define a smirk? I’m going with slightly crooked close-mouthed smiles. I had a bunch of them with varying degrees of crookedness. Hope you dig them.

Daily Dozen – Long and Dark May it Wave

This is the set I’d planned to do last Friday – women with long dark wavy hair. It’s hard to make a distinction between wavy and curly so I apologize if it’s a mixed bag but I try.

Daily Dozen – Goin’ to the Chapel

Every day there are between four and five thousand weddings in the United States. I’ve seen number saying more than six thousand in some places. Tomorrow my friend Abby is getting married. Originally today’s set was going to feature women with long wavy hair (which I’ll do on Monday I guess) but as I tagged photos I came across Abby’s photos a few times and thought, “oh yeah, she’s getting married tomorrow, I’ll do a set!” And so that’s what I did.

I met Abby almost exactly four years ago (July 30, 2008 – I know because I took her picture). Her then roommate Karyn (maybe they weren’t roommates at the time, probably not actually) became one of my truest pals so I’ve seen Abby here and there frequently over the past few years. Less, I guess since Karyn moved to Nebraska. Anyhow, like I was saying, lots of people get married and now it’s Abby’s turn. Fred’s the guy she’s marrying and he’s cool too. Here’s wishing them good fortune and a long and happy life together!

Daily Dozen – Women in Bars

This may be a first. Yesterday I did men in bars and said I’d do women’s today and here it is! The first photo is from Austin, TX. It was the first night I went out and photographed strangers. It hadn’t been my thing before that and if people hadn’t responded well to me asking I probably wouldn’t have continued. I’m glad people were – and continue to be – open minded.

Daily Dozen – Men in Bars

One of the easiest places to photograph strangers is in bars. There are a few reasons for this: first, people may have had a couple of drinks and are more relaxed; second, people are usually there with friends which makes them more comfortable and third, it’s usually a familiar place. When I started I shot almost exclusively in bars but eventually wanted to move beyond shooting in the dark. I still do it and always enjoy myself but am happy to have broadened things a bit. Today’s set features men in bars. Tomorrow, unless something else pops into my head, I will do women.

Daily Dozen – Women in Stripes

This was a surprisingly hard set to put together. It seems that many women don’t wear striped clothing. I looked hard though and was able to find a number to choose from. A few might be a stretch but what can you do?

Daily Dozen – Dudes with Dimples

Almost a year ago I did a set of women with dimples and decided to revisit the theme today but featuring men. As with freckles, there seem to be a lot more women with dimples than men. I suppose it has to do with the structure of people’s faces. It took some time for me to round up twelve images but ultimately I was successful! I hope you’ll enjoy them.
