It’s been a while.
First, this is Quanisha. I met her near DuPoint circle while I waited for my wife, Shani, to get out of a class downtown.
Wife you say Jamal?
Why yes. A lot has happened since I last posted to my site.
Lets run it down shall we?
I married the love of my life.
I started work at my new job.
I moved to Virginia (gasp).
So yeah, quite a bit. I’m thankful and excited for things to come.
Anyway back to Quanisha.
I was walking around the DuPont Circle area after a few cups of coffee from Emissary (which were great).
After unsuccessfully asking a few people to make a portrait, I saw her and her majestic bun walking through the crosswalk.
I knew I needed to ask for a shot.
I walked up to her and handed her my card as awkwardly as possible (as I always do).
After complimenting her look, I asked to take the shot.
She obliged, and said it wasn’t the first time someone had asked.
This is her good side (her words).
I normally write much more, but honestly I’m just excited to post this shot and get this series started again.
Art Everyday is back y’all.
