Yes You Can

Yes You Can — Seattle, WA, 2012

I found this young girl, trying to stay warm in from of Holy Smoke on East Olive Way. It's hard having to see the youth living on the streets. Without waking her up, I left her with the few bills I had in my pocket. God bless her and good luck.

These Are My Eyes

These Are My Eyes — Seattle, WA, 2012
Photo by: Dr. Noha Seif

I've caught myself squinting more frequently at objects in the distance, it was time for an eye exam. After some research, I settled on Hour Eyes Optical on 534 Broadway. I was impressed with their speedy service and taking the time to help me choose a pair of frames. Dr. Noha Seif, provided me a new lens prescription and took some photos of the back of my eyes.

Gangsters for Christ

Gangsters for Christ — Seattle, WA, 2012

While crossing the bridge on Denny Ave, pedestrians can sometimes see displays of art created by individuals participating in a variety of rehabilitation programs at the Downtown Emergency Service Center.

"The Downtown Emergency Service Center works to end the homelessness of vulnerable people, particularly those living with serious mental or addictive illnesses. Through partnerships and an integrated array of comprehensive services, treatment and housing, we give people the opportunity to reach their highest potential. At DESC, uncommon efforts produce uncommon results that eliminate homelessness, one person at a time."

Yesterday, I found my photos on a year old blog post from MTV for Slut Walk NYC. I'm honored they used my work to illustrate the story behind slut-shaming. However, there's a significant inaccuracy in the article, I took these photos in Seattle, not in New York.

Since MTV's aim is to educate people about this important issue, I'm not that upset over it. I still received photo credit for the work and they aren't making any profit from the article.

Due to the North West wild fires, we weren't allowed to build a campfire... Oh well, time to hang out with good ol' Jim Beam.
