new alliance(s)...

i was asked to take some photos for a local hip hop band new alliance. i know one of the members, chris, because he ran cross country with maxx. he is a vegetarian so i would take him to find meat-free food options on some of the cross country trips. which meant that chris and i had lots of chatting in the suburban looking for vegetarian friendly restaurant time. he is a neat guy. heading to college in new york in a few days so he wanted his band photos before he left. 

here is one of my favorites... see if you can figure out why...

Transient

YES, THAT IS A REALY LIVE TRAIN HEADING OUR WAY!!!!! i love danger in a photo session. the excitement and fear just make the photos all the better. the best part was that the train was alerting us with a loud alarm noise and the boys were about to leave the tracks and i screamed over the train noise, "JUST ONE MORE SHOT WITH THE TRAIN IN THE BACKGROUND!" i am all about the photo. not so much about people actually surviving the photo shoot.
