"I instantly became weak in my knees."The Saturday afternoon was bright and sunny. The temperature was finally giving Philadelphians a sign of hope that spring had sprung. The streets were crowded with tourists, food enthusiasts, theater goers and most annoyingly, drunkards.
Whether from out of town or from local neighborhoods, the drunkards always rear their ugly heads at the first signs of spring. Often, they show up in pubs and eateries that on most occasions, would have never thought of crossing the threshold of such a nice establishment. It can get a bit irritating but who am I to complain? I love when the streets are filled with life. Intoxicated or not, it's nice to see that summer is on its way. And hey, I'm no stranger to a delicious adult beverage or two.
Hell, this is exactly where I'm taking you today, down the road to Utopia.
Well, the only thing that I can agree to is that; maybe I have lost my mind.
Follow along today and you will see why I am not full of ego, in fact, in my humble opinion, I believe that I am very balanced in the id/ego/superego department.
The smell of weed was overwhelming. . .
Being a successful photographer, at times, takes more than the know how and application of proper composition, by-the-book lighting, or creating an aesthetically pleasing photograph. Sometimes, getting your camera where others won't will separate the men from the boys (or women from the girls for those still hung up on being PC).
Today, I will share with you my most recent journey to the unknown.
Today, I will share with you my journey, one day of searching for that perfect meal to photograph. It was just me, my camera and a large cup of coffee. Sometimes getting raw, stripping down to some bare minimums, can take you to a unobscured place of inner creativeness. What the hell does that mean? I have no fucking idea but it sure felt smooth coming out. Sometimes my fingers type things that come from some strange and unknown places.
Seriously though, it is rewarding in many ways to simply grab one camera, one lens and hit the road, not worrying about where you may end up. The only concern is that you end up that day with something interesting, something beautiful, something to share with the world; your photography.
I'm super pumped to announce a couple of things today. All of them are pretty interrelated but significant to announce nonetheless.
First and foremost, is the new website, michaelanthonymurphy.com.
Second and, well, just as important is the new blog design and address, blog.michaelanthonymurphy.com.
Lastly and, again, equally as important as the other two are your way to track me down. email@example.com and 267.481.4424, which are my email and phone number, respectively.
The production of the new campaign is currently in phase one and hopefully will be in its final phase in just a few weeks. Hopefully.
