It's been a rough week here in St. Petersburg. Hurricane Irma decided to pay us a visit and, I have to say, it was stressful! I own a home here and as the storm approached, I struggled to find wood to cover my windows and wondered, more than once, if all would be lost. Luckily, the boards held strong, the damage to the area was not nearly as bad as it could have been and all those near and dear are safe. After the storm, things have slowly started to return to normal. A lot of people are still without power and many businesses are struggling to open again. Luckily, I have understanding clients, so they are ok with deadlines being pushed. A huge thank you to everyone out there helping return our community to normal!
Another fun project creating an identity for West Fest, a night market at freeFall Theatre this fall, hosted by Keep St. Petersburg Local. It all takes place under a wonderful tree between freeFall and The Reading Room... it's full of string lights, so I decided to make that the central focus of the Facebook event image shown here.

Our office dog had a wonderful National Dog Day. He celebrated with treats and his favorite pastime: ball chasing. There's nothing better than having this little guy as part of the team ;)
Photographers of all skill levels are invited to participate in One Day Tampa Bay 2017. From their website:
"One Day Tampa Bay is a 24-hour community photography project to document the lives and light of St Pete, Tampa, Clearwater and all the towns in between. This is an annual event to create a dynamic and reflective documentation of our cities and its neighborhoods. All level of photographers are welcome."
