Houston, TX - Melt into Summer

Click ME

This thread is pretty short but sweet. Some of you may have seen some of these if you have been keeping up with my 100 Strangers Project. But if not please click some of the portraits and you can read over the stories I posted regarding the encounters with these folks.






























One last shot just for the one like photolitherland.......

Thanks. Coming from you this means a lot to me. I was always impressed by your portrait work and it was always a favorite part of your threads for me and had a lot to do with the evolution of my style.

nice one, man. i agree, the DOF stuff is real sharp. and the coloration on some of them is definitely that from someone with a discerning eye. the first skyline shot and this one stand out for me, in terms of color.
