For me and my music work, I am at my best when the artist is awesome and the groove is infectious! Yup, that’s when the moments come fast and furious and I’m just clicking away 😉

I woke up like this!


Gordy must have heard about me bad mouthing his little friend, because I woke up with my back killin me this morning. Seems ole Winnie here got the best of me with one of his Ninja Death Stars or that barely Concealed Circle of Pain! Look at that smug look on his face! Gordy was gone to the sitter when I woke up but I know the two of them planned this. I don’t see fingerprints, but there was drool residue near by. The inmates are trying to take over the asylum!

@chucklightning and @kellindo on a #throwbackthursday. When I captured this image one year ago (10/15/13), I had no idea that I’d ever get the chance to meet these guys. Dreams do come true! Thanks @wondaland! You were the first one that I met. I really appreciate your giving spirit also.

Since I’m a huge fan of @outkast I was somewhat familiar with her but had never seen her live. Well, one year ago this week, 10/14 & 10/15 to be exact, I went to see this lady and her Wondaland family at the Historic Lincoln Theater. I was completely blown away!!! Her sound, performance, and sheer energy blew the doors off the building, and I’m almost certain that a structural engineer was called in the next morning to assess the damage to the foundation and to the support beans, BECAUSE SHE ROCKED THAT PLACE TO ITS VERY CORE!!! Up until that time, I hadn’t partied that hard at a concert in years! The great energy and vibe in that space was simply explosive…nobody could sit down the entire time (well, that is until she had the entire audience to sit and kneel down, which everyone did without hesitation!)


Of course I could write a novel just about @janellemonae that night and the next night when @romangianarthur, @kennethharristoo, @chucklightning, @wondaland, and @deepcotton rocked another venue! However, it would take more than a series of novels to write about all of the amazing things that followed. Many have been so amazing, that you probably wouldn’t believe half of them even if I shared. People often go on about how genuine and humble some artists are, and about how giving other artists can be, often without ever really knowing if it’s true. Well, let me be the first, if you haven’t heard it anywhere else before now, Ms. Janelle Monáe is all that she seems and more. She is truly a gifted artist, but more than that, she’s a rare genuinely giving and beautiful humanitarian. I am truly blessed to have crossed paths with such a person. That my friends is the short version 😉. I didn’t miss the actual anniversary date of her coming to DC, I’ve just been typing this since then. 😁Now you see why it took me two days to write it.


One of the 1st images that I captured of Ms. Monáe, never before “published” online. #imageby Derrel R. Todd | @dtodd 📷 #photographerforcreativepeople #professional #dreamer
