Another Soulful Symphony rehearsal checked off as we get closer and closer to the anniversary celebration on the October 30th. It is so wonderful to be part of wonderful celebration of genius, hard work and just good-natured fun. Everyone involved in the rehearsal was there for no other reason than the love of the performing beautiful music.

On Monday, I had the distinct opportunity to capture the chorus rehearsal for the 10th anniversary of the Soulful Symphony created by acclaimed conductor Darin Atwater. I met Darin through a mutual friend, Brian Davis, who I’ll feature at later date on the blog. Darin’s music is different from any regular you might hear at music hall. According to NPR, Darin combines strands of gospel, jazz, R&B and even hip-hop in his orchestral music. If you are in Baltimore/ Washington DC area on the 30th of October, be sure to check out the concert at the Meyerhoff.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending Kehinde and Dedun’s Wedding. I have known both of them for almost 10 years know. Dedun and I went undergraduate at Morgan State University together and I’ve know Kehinde (Uncle Kenny as I like to call him) for as long as well. In the Yoruba tradition, before the actual wedding ceremony, there is a traditional wedding/ engagement ceremony that takes place a couple of days before. On this occasion, it was the Thursday ( 2days before the wedding). Here are some images that captured the event.
Sometime last week (I think it was Wednesday) I was reading something on my twitter feed and I found about the Worldwide photo walk that was been over the weekend. Sleep in or get up early and go take photographs ? Such a hard decision to make !! Did I mention that David duChemin was having a free class on creativeLIVE in the comfort of my cool apartment. In the end, I decided to pay for the downloaded version of the class and off I went to go look for photo walk sites to join in the Baltimore area. I ended signing up for the Mount Vernon location. I’ll say for my my first photo walk, it was quite interesting and the choice of the historic Mount Vernon neighborhood was an excellent pick. We started at the City Cafe , headed down to Washington Monument at the square and ended up at the Baltimore Basilica. Here are a few photographs that captured that eventful Saturday morning photo walk. Phew !! Was I glad it was in the morning as the temperature reached 110°F that day !!
