The Lord giveth Alice Smith. The Lord taketh away Alice Smith.

So here’s a little story…

Ask anyone who knows me who’s my girlfriend and they’ll tell you it’s Alice Smith. Years before she’d blown the audience away at last year’s Black Girls Rock, I’d been screaming her name from the mountain tops. To me, Alice is the complete package. She’s the perfect blend of being uber-talented, humble, down to earth and ohhhh so sexy. There’s also this cute, quirky silliness that I enjoy about her. Citizen Cope is one lucky dude!

These are the only few pics that I have of Alice of the 100+ that I’d taken. I inadvertently formatted the SD card when I headed out to the 2nd day of Afropunk. I imported all of Saturday’s photos into Lightroom…or so I thought. Come to find out, the hard drive on my aging Macbook was completely full and didn’t import all of the photos. Not only did I lose 85% of my Alice Smith snaps, but all of my photos of Lianne La Havas and Sharon Jones. Talk about being completely pissed!!!

I’m still thankful for these few shots of my favorite girl. Enoy!!

Black women are BEAUTIFUL: Afropunk!!

Oh, the beautiful, natural sisters of afropunk! I could have easily spent my day photographing the vast amount of absolutely gorgeous women at this year’s staging. However, my heart was with the music and I was right upfront with 99.9% of the crowd at my back. Next year, the colorful, beautiful patrons of this great musical event will be my focus.
