During my senior year at Millsaps College, I completed forty two semester hours for my Bachelor of Arts in Theatre. This meant that I had a pretty crazy schedule – all I did was work at The Limited, work backstage in the theatre, direct a play for children, take theatre comp exams, take four fine art courses, found the time for the labs for all this artsyness, and a LOT of other core requirements I had not felt like taking when I was in the earlier years of my college career. My photography course required that I have my camera with me at all times, and if my professor ran across me with it off campus, I would get an extra “A” in my projects grades (or an “F” if I didn’t have it). I took this very seriously and always carried it with me, fortuitously receiving two surprise “A’s”, particularly when I was out drinking. I was shooting with my stepdad’s old Nikon F that he took with him to Viet Nam. It was very special piece of equipment with which I managed to take this selfie at three AM at the bus station in downtown, one of my favorite spots to take modern architecture photos. Some things never change. I’m still trying to entertain children with my art, I still love architecture, and I’m still at my creative best at three AM.
