High School Kids on the Highway

My buddy Nathan asked if I could bring my camera to document more of the non profit Tisdale Food Forest project that he is spearheading. This time around he coordinated with the Tulsa School for Arts and Science. About 100 teenagers showed up ready to spread mulch to prepare the trees for winter. It was a slightly cloudy morning which is my favorite on this hill because they always work in the AM and the sun rises over that side of the highway right in my lens. There have been a few challenging shots taken on that road. The coolest part of the shoot were the kids by far. These guys really worked their butts off. It took them two hours to move a couple dump truck loads of mulch across 100 yards of plantings. I grew up in a small town and had only 66 people in my graduating class. Uniqueness didn't get you very far when I was a kid, but this group was awesome. All different kinds of personalities and styles were represented. It makes me hopeful for our future. Lol

This is the latest shoot I have done since... the June State Preservation conference? Ya, I guess so. Man that sucks. I've been stupid busy with repairing our old house getting it ready for a refinance. I knew it had been a while, but damn. I gotta get on it. At any rate here are a couple shots that I have managed to get processed. I'll probably make a full gallery of all the Tisdale stuff before the next spring push out there. But for now, here are a few of my favorites from the day.
