[ day 2 ] luvmud 5k 2011by the amazing Josh Malahy with his digital Leica M8 and Fuji X100, perfect for street photography. Josh usually shoots gorgeous weddings using mostly film (which makes me an instant fan), but we hope he contributes more Memphis street photography soon. Check out his website here.

luvmud 2011 kids' run [ Ziggy Mack ]

What's more fun than getting muddy? Cleaning up in water sprayed from a fire truck! luvmud's addition of the kids' race this year was a triumphant success. They also gained a great volunteer photographer this year too - Ziggy Mack. Thanks Ziggy for this set. I'm sure you'll see more luvmud photos on here soon.

Nikon D3000, 1/250s, f/5.6, ISO 200, 55mm
[ young love ] Memphis photographer Jackie G. Ellison scours the urban environment with his camera like no else I've seen in Memphis. He captured this intimate moment in the busiest part of downtown - Beale Street.  Honestly, I usually gag at PDA but I'm feeling the sweetness in Jackie's photo. Have a lovely weekend!

See more of Jackie's photography at his site itchyshutterfinger.

September South Main Trolley Tour

Art, music, and revelry again for the September Trolley Tour.  This time, several of the contributors to this blog and other area photogs met up for some fun.  Oddly, I was the only photographer there who actually brought a camera along, so you folks are stuck with a few of my photos of the evening.
