I took these while attending a Lou O' Bedlam workshop in Seattle. He was very helpful in helping me become more critical of my work and thus more thoughtful in the execution (I hope). If you are curious about Lou check out his site and he is starting a really cool project and needs help from all of us, I pledged, you should too!
also he is starting a project for a photo book, it sounds amazing. He needs some help, go to kickstarter and help out!
