Today, when I sat down at my computer, I had every intention on writing a well informed sports article about a current event that would be relevant to the average sports fan. I mean, I really wanted to, but the Atlanta Hawks organization and Peter Sorckoff, their chief creative officer, were just not going to have it.
I honestly don’t even know where to begin with these things, I literally cannot find a single redeeming quality in these uniforms. I guess let’s start at the beginning with WHO THE HELL DECIDED TO ADD NEON YELLOW TO THE MIX?!? If adidas approached me and asked me to redesign a uniform, the absolute last suggestion I would make would be to add neon yellow to the color scheme.

Who am I? I am a mixture of many combinations of opposites, leaving others constantly unsure of which me they will get.
I have found out that it's appropriate that my birthday is in the fall. It's a time of change, transition, and letting go. This past Saturday I turned 20. TWENTY. That means I'm two decades old. I found myself feeling the same way the leaves on the trees looked: hanging on to the last bit … Continue reading Two Decades

Naturally, I went to the Quad at 3:00 on Friday to capture some shots of ultimate frisbee. For those of you who don't know, Friday Frisbee at 3:00 on the Quad is … Continue reading Frisbee Friday
I am in a photojournalism class this semester and have decided to share some of my projects with y'all. This set of pictures was taken at Marr's Spring on campus at the University of Alabama. Built in the 1800s, the spring is the reason for the campus's location and is still a popular place for … Continue reading Marr’s Spring
