Rescue mission.

This is my first completed piece from the Washington D.C. Flickr meetup!


I'm having such a blast - a few of us who travelled from the west coast spent the first day in and around Philadelphia, sightseeing and eating cheesesteaks. We got to Steven's house in Ashton 2 days ago and we've been shooting ever since.


This waterfall is part of a restricted, off-the-path area of a forest we hiked through after spending the day in a neat antique town called Bean Hollow, and shooting for most of the day in a gigantic abandoned rubber factory.


Tomorrow we'll be heading into the city and capitol to shoot at some indoor locations. I'm so excited to share more images of the trip with you all!


Models are AJ Coley and Jessica Kusuma.

    this location and the expression are both incredible!
  • Cynthia 3y

    Their expressions here are incredible, and instantly bring me deeper into the story. I love how the wet fabric looks, soaked against their bodies, really showing us how intense and powerful the water is, much like the power of their emotions.

    I spent a long time staring at this. It is absolutely amazing. The water, the focus, the tones, the emotion, it's all perfect. The rope adds something tremendous to the photo. Very well done.
