Alright.

There's a whole bunch going on around us these days with absolute craziness. 
People are fighting amongst each other regarding politics, policies, ideas....
Favorite color is blue versus green...
Black & white...
Rich & poor..
Religion...
Democrat, Republican..
North, south...east & west...

Lets be honest folk, there's a vast amount of difference with opinion & that's OK 
for we're entitled 2 such.
It's yours 2 hold.

Whatever the case despite it all, everything is "ALRIGHT".

Yep!

Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Invaluable.

Out with old, in with the new. 
A whole bunch has transpired over the past few years with plenty 2 be happily remembered. 

It's kinda tough getting over how fast time slips on by without any notice which has given me more of a reason 2 make the most of every single situation. 

Tomorrow is never promised 2 anyone & there's absolutely no room for thoughts of regret. 
Every moment becomes an invaluable learning experience specifically detailed 2 make you much more. 

With that in mind, looking forward 2 what's in store makes everything so much more exciting....

Are you ready? 
I am...now lets go get this!


Peace!...with 2 fingers;) 

You.

We all have the responsibility 
2 show accountability. 
(Ya know?)
It’s never the person who commits the actual crime but rather the fault of someone else.
I suppose it’s easier 2 blame others for your own issue instead of self.
That way, there’s never a need 2 face it. 


Well, @ the end of the day, no matter how often the finger is pointed, it always begin & end with “YOU”.
Yep!….

Peace!…with 2 fingers;)

Public Service Announcement;)


Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Mama.

Can never say enough wonderful things about my "Mama" Catherine.

Raising 5 on very little (& I truly mean little), 
she's been able 2 do where many fail...
give love.

Lookin' back over the years, it's an awesome wonder 2 see where we all have come.
All thanks 2 her...

Today she continues 2 stand tall & follow the principles passed down.
(Now that's an example)..

Thanks "Mama"....Love you.

Yep!


Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

World.

It's hard 2 believe that it's been nearly 3 years & countin' since Lady Tammy & myself have joined forces. 
The experiences shared along the way have been both fulfilling & challenging as we tackle the "WORLD"

If you've followed along, you would've noticed the joy along with the sadness....Ugghh!!

Despite it all, here we are continuing 2 still stand with an added hint of wisdom & definite growth. 

Now as each day passes, we prepare for the unexpected while @ the same time evolving into something much more. 

What that is we're unsure but man is it an experience....
Yep!


Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

More Than.




Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

All.

Since moving 2 the state of Georgia a few months ago, things have slowed down a great deal which has given me the much needed time 2 regroup & gather thoughts. 

Life is so very constant & can be a bit overwhelming leaving
 little time 2 embrace the awesomeness.
In this case, it's the wonderful experiences & memories with the nucleus of family.

It's like reading a book... 
If you're 2 busy tryin' 2 get through it, you tend 2 lose the enjoyment and most important principles. 
That's why it's so important 2 gather thoughts & recollect the beauty of it all.

It's as simple as a trip 2 the local mall for a shoppin' spree for son Khalid's 11th birthday.

Once again, with photography & some cool video, memories become so much more. 
Something that'll never go away.
So why go for just a lil' bit when you can actually have it "ALL"?
Yep!....

Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Ordinary.


 
In this world, people are quick 2 
call what they do as new 
but nothing really more but a different name 
on the same shelf.

Truth is not what we decide it 2 be 
but rather what's alive & lives inside.


So tell me....what makes you any different 
from the next?

There's a call 2 life so why even wonder?...
for the GOD inside me just won't let me be...
"ORDINARY".....


Yep!...

Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Different.

Lookin' back over the years I've dealt with the insecurities of self. 
Runnin' from the sun & repeatedly boxin' my very own shadows. 
At times I've wondered... "Dayum!...What was I really thinkin'?"
Despite the overly inflated & petty cosmetic issues of teeth, smile, hair, etc,
I've come 2 realize that's who I am 
& there's no other me.

Uniquely & specially made from head 2 toe....Yes!!!
Someday we'll eventually grow old 
& still I'll be beautiful.

With no further need 2 hide my head in a paper bag, 
now you can really see me.

Yep!...
I'm"DIFFERENT."



Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Summer.

Today is my younger brother's 38th birthday. 
It's tough 2 believe it's been so long since refusing 2 have him tag along cause it was a headache. 

Now with a family of his own & totally independent, I've nothing more 2 say 
but dayum I'm so proud to have such a great guy as a brother & not just because it's his birthday.


Anyways...

We decided 2 make a run across the city for a birthday visit including bonfire action & barbeque 
(of course)...

...something we're known 2 do nearly every "SUMMER".

Great times.

Yep!....


Peace!....with 2 fingers;)

The Heart.


This is the true signature of a place where creativity took root. Without the gift of an artist, beauty of expression will never have it’s place.
Rogers Park….
Yep!

Beautiful.


Taking an early morning stroll down Peachtree Lake Drive, a stranger walked by, stopped, stared & smiled....

Skin.


No time 2 wrongfully place judgement on others due 2 race, sex or creed. 
Everything's so much more bigger than yesterday so move with it. 

Lovin' & appreciation of self is the 
call for the day. 
Think of it this way.....if you fail 2 love who you are inside & out,
what makes you think anyone else ever would?....

I wouldn't.

Lookin' @ the much bigger picture you realize 
there's only one life in your "SKIN"....so live it.

Yep!....


Peace!...with 2 fingers;)




Wishin'.





Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Hammered & Nailed.


When there’s me, there’s usually a camera in hand. 
That’s just the way it’s been for years & if you have yet 2 notice, everything is captured in one way or another.
Anywho….I recently came across an online photo contest for creative artistry, submitted the themed pic “Hammer & Nails”….& nearly won the dayum thing!

The interesting part about all this is, I’ve never even prepared & literally allowed the “force” 2 lead the way on this project.
Similar 2 that whole Luke Skywalker & Yoda thing. lmao!

Hmmm…lets see what happens next time.
I’ll keep you posted….

Yep!…


Peace!….with 2 fingers;)

Reel.

Can't believe it's been nearly 4 years & countin' since starting this whole Weddington Adventures videography / photography venture.
There's been a plenty of memories both good & bad but yet still gracefully captured throughout my collection of videos / photos. 

Throughout this process, I've been able 2 contribute my abilities with those in need of creative services....Whether a graduation, prom, wedding, reception, small business, special events or anything that requires something a bit different... (Check out my "REEL" below.)

Lookin' back, there's difficulty comprehending how I even ended up @ this point. 
Not that I'm completely & successfully accomplished as an artist or anything but still, I truly am one. 
(An artist) & by every definition of the word. 


"Peace!....with 2 fingers"?....
Yeah, who would've ever thought. 

It still brings about a chuckle from time 2 time on just how something so randomly simple could end up being so catchy & rememberable. 
With social networking & some creative juice, you could reach millions around the world....
Australia?, Turkey?, London?, Africa?....
(yeah right!)

Whatever the case, it sticks & it works....
Yep!
Now....will someone please hire me?
(lol)




Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Porchin'

Only imagined this in an off the wall, unforseeable dream where there's rockin' chairs a rockin', plants a churnin' & teeth a showin'
(totally came off the top of the dome with that one...lol)

We are a "Porchin!!!'"....Yep!



Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Locked & Loaded.


This is my weapon of choice.
A highly powered, crisped & fully adjustable DSLR….

(with a whole lotta creativity.)
What else do you need?


Peace!…with 2 fingers;)

Send.

This was brother John big day. 
His birthday. 20 somethin' @ the time...(ummm....i think.)

There's nothing like celebratin' your birthday @ a camp site with family, friends & fire.
(not 2 mention a few other things)....(whisper**)... 
fine spirits ;)


Always fun witnessin' the new stuff.

Life.

Peace!...with 2 fingers;)
