Jason, in Drifters + Wanderers

Jason came by to pose for my Drifters series. The second photo, as always, is not safe for work, so don't scroll down if that's a problem.

As always, you can see both photos together on both of my websites, SBarnesPhotography and Vir Impudicus.

Love Is Love

From their website:

The goal of the Purple Hat Project is to highlight the universality of love in all its incarnations, excluding the constraints of ethnicity, sexual orientation, or socio-economic standing, in an effort to provide an avenue to broaden minds and open hearts.

A few weeks ago, the organization hosted its second "Love is Love" photo shoot (I posted about it, here). Jay and I, and our roommate Jared, decided to go. We live in the same house — but more than that, we take care of each other — and yes we are a family.

Here's our photo.

Katie Moon was the photographer — who I adore and respect more than just about any other Indiana-based photographer you can name. And because I like the series, and her work, here are a couple more images from the day.

Here's the cute couple that posed just after us, with their pet rat.

And here is our good friend, Sara, with her son.

It was a fun afternoon.

All photos in this post copyright, Katie Moon for the Purple Hat Project.

As my friend Kevin and I were talking towards a new Mexican restaurant we wanted to try (Revolucion), we stopped at a small alcove in one of the buildings and I took his photograph.

This shouldn't be newsworthy, but it is — which is sad. For a photographer, you'd be surprised at how few photos I have of my own friends. I need to fix this, especially since we might move away from here one of these days.

Kevin is always hard on himself, which makes it mean even more to me that he likes this photo.

Side note: I found Revolucion to be particularly underwhelming.

Brant, Rhiannon, + Chase

These are a handful of the photos from one of my recent shoots/photo series, which for now remains untitled. It might stay that way. Before you scroll down, note that one of the photos below is not safe for work.

These three work together at my favorite bar. It was a fun shoot. See my main website for the whole series.

Ellie has been staying with us for the weekend. She's adorable. She goes home tomorrow.

Trainer Boy

I hope I haven't turned into "that creepy guy" with the cell phone, it's just that I have nothing better to post today than this camera phone snapshot of the cute butt of one of the trainers at my gym.

I do have a new "gym boyfriend" (unbeknownst to him). But I haven't been creepy enough to try to steal his photo yet. I'd love for him to pose for my American People series, I just don't know how to ask a stranger at the gym.

David, at First Friday

David is one of my favorite photo subjects. Even if it's just a snapshot, I take his photo every time I see him.

Now There's a Look

Yes, I've been reduced to taking poor-quality snapshots through the screen door or my living room. But when I saw one of my neighbors mowing her lawn in a long black dress, I couldn't help myself.

I want Jay to wear this getup the next time he mows.

The View

I was downtown a couple of days ago, waiting to meet someone (actually, this person), when I couldn't help but notice this man's unusually attractive backside.

I'm afraid that's all I have today. I mean, yes — there is the lunch date with my prisoner/ex-model, but that's a story for another day. Maybe. That might be a story to keep for myself.

This sight makes me sad.

This chain and her pillow were the last of her things that we put away.

Here are three extra shots of Oscar that I captured when he posed for my series, Drifters + Wanderers. They were too good not to use, so you can find them on Vir Impudicus, in the main/editorial photo gallery.
