I also used some fairy wing brushesdark_fantasyand this next one I used a stock photo of an old polaroid and an ashtray and added photos of emgee run through Alien skin Exposure 2 the B&W polaroid effect. The table is from Alien skin Eye candy texturespolaroid_collageI guess I have too much time on my hands to read Tutorials. If amyone is interested in the process let me know

New modeling site

I just created a new modeling site, Gulf Coast Models just for the Southern states of Al. Ar. Ga. Fl. La. Ms. SC Tn. and Tx. I always felt that Americas other coast got overlooked on the big modeling sites. This way at least there is a chance we can work together without having to wade through members from NY and Cali. So if you read this, are a model, photographer, mua, etc and  from one of those states feel free to check it out and join

I created a new modeling site just for the Gulf coast states of Tx.,La.,Ms., al., and Fl. This way models, MUA’s and photographers from these states can interact and network together. So many times on the other modeling sites the east and west coasts dominate the site. Well now we can have a place of our own. It is free to join

9-11 7 years ago today. Where were you at 7:46 CST. I was working as the maintenance supervisor for a large nursing home. I was walking the hall when a nurse called from one of the rooms that a plane had crashed into the world trade center. We watched the TV there for a few minutes before going to the TV lounge. It was there that I saw the 2nd plane crash and knew the world had changed FOREVER. As a war vet and proud American it sickened me and outraged me.  I remembered a line from one of my favorite movies, Last of the Mohicans, when Cora Monroe says ” I have seen the face of war, but never so on women and children. It was then I knew that this new enemy had no respect for life, or honor. They should be hunted down like animals. We were cursed by the world for our tactics in Viet Nam and accused of being baby killers but this act was dispicable. At least the Japanese targeted a military installation. My Christian beliefs tell me to forgive my enemies, but it does not say I must forget
9-11 Never forget

Once again it ia raining all over the south. Fay is causing havoc with the gulf coast. Always seems to be feast or famine in the south. There are many things from the south that those of northern birth do not expeience. ham and red eye gravy, 110% humidity, mosquitos the size of B1 bombers and of course GRITS. Now as much as I like the ground corn breakfast variety I am talking about GRITS, that is Girls Raised In The South. There is just something about these girls their northern sisters do not have,  a genteel manner with a big streak of toughness. Here are few of my favorite GRITS




Mary Jane





I know I will catch flack about this but it is just how I feel and my opinion. Find you a southern girl and find out for yourself
