This week I had the incredible pleasure to photograph a beautiful friend. Ellyn is an incredibly talented actress and musician and photographing her was always on my list. She and I met downtown and hit the streets looking for our city’s unique and strange spots.
Every since I have returned from England, I am in shock at Arizona’s glaring sun and winter heat. The afternoon was anything but a January winter day, so we became appreciative of every shady location we found.
After we failed to break into a burned down church, we came across an abandoned home and invited ourselves onto its steps. It was an incredible find and we were able to get some great photos.
The rest of the time we played with colors, working down walls of bright colors and newly painted murals. Downtown is always my vote for a location and with such a perfect model like Ellyn, I really couldn’t have gone wrong.
