jalexartis ~ Hair Styling, Natural Genius Hair Salon, Fayetteville, North Carolina, 12/23

Stylist: Tressa

Okay! Here I am 6-days after my 74th Birthday with a retwist of my dreadlocs and a first-time hairstyle [and photos of me] by Tressa, Natural Genius Hair Salon, downtown Fayetteville, NC. My hair extends below my pectoral muscles in front and shoulder blades in back.

Tressa styled a dreadloc crown of my locs to reduce the weight of my hair on new growth. Over my 7 years of wearing my hair loced, I have had some breakage. Over the next year Tressa will reattach some of my broken locs. That will cost me $10 for each repair.

I will forever be indebted to and most thankful to Nafisah, my first stylist and the person who cared for my hair for the last 7 years. Nafisah consulted with Tressa and put her in contact with me for repair of broken locs and to be my new stylist.

I like today’s style. Repaired locs on the crown on my head, will allow subsequent styles to cover more of my receding hairline. Let’s see what we have a year from now.

Thanks Nafisah and Tressa!

Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina ~ Fun & Frolic, 05/18

Lots of happy people

This is the most people I have seen at this beach. Enjoyment was at hand… I followed these shots with pictures of the May Full Moon Rise, followed by sunrise the next morning–compelling shots of both events.

Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina ~ Sunrise, 05/19

“Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailor’s warning”

Sunrise @ 6:07 am Eastern Daylight Time. I used the Johnnie Mercers Fishing Pier to enhance the captures. Although there were some clouds, the sun was clearly visible as it rose out of the ocean–luv the red color cast.

Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina ~ Full Moon Rising, 05/18

May Full Moon

Full Blue [Flower] Moon @ 5:11 pm Eastern Daylight Time. I used the Johnnie Mercers Fishing Pier and people on the beach to enhance the captures. At moonrise, the horizon was too cloudy to see the moon rising out of the ocean.

Photography ~ The OBX Experience, 01/20-01/21

Kill Devil Hills–North Carolina Outer Banks

This was a quick one-night trip with three targets sets of photographs: 1) 01/20 moonrise; 2) the Super Blood Wolf Moon lunar eclipse; and, 3) 01/21 sunrise. For the most part, clouds were a challenge. They blocked seeing the Sunday evening moonrise and the Monday morning sunrise–ruling out seeing the moon and sun shimmering on the ocean as they peaked above the surface.

Nonetheless, there are some good captures in this group. I will do this shoot again–less the lunar eclipse, but closer to home next time–maybe Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina [its’s the closest to me].

Stay tuned…
