my quarter machine hommies


this is my entry! a portrait of faith. I shot a wedding in a catholic church today. and i just love this image. i think it shows so many opposite feelings ~ dark, light... elumination and shadows... anyway. these two pics were a total toss up! i couldnt choose. the hommies i set up for this, the other was just a fav snap that i feel fits this well.

here are my quarter machine favorites... tiny little hommies. i collected these for a long time. it killed me that you can find racism in a quarter machine! (and i only claim that its racism because some of them came with tiny garbage cans, and spray paint accessories) and my dad always liked to talk like he was a "cool homey" so i decided to take thier portrait!

So very Catholic. I like it. It's funny how we all have different ways of showing our faith, but basically we all believe in the same basic thing(s) (Christians in general, that is...not everyone, obviously). Great take on the challenge.
