bradpuet Meet Philip and his 3mo old Maddox

I met them while strolling the Melrose District in Los Angeles. We had a pretty cool discussion about fatherhood.

I'm thankful for having the blessing, opportunity, and responsibility of being a parent. It's a hard job don't get me wrong but I don't see how my life can be any other way.

What are you thankful for?

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

bradpuet While in Los Angeles for a gig, I was able to get out for an hour and shoot street. The Melrose District didn't disappoint. I got to meet some awesome people and there wasn't any hesitation when I asked to take their portraits. Big up LA.

Hope y'all are all well.

  •   bradpuet @mr._verde nah your ignorant. lumping looters in with protesters mean you eat what mainstream media feeds you. I was out there and have been out to many protests and have seen how some media has twisted the truth. The smoke and mirrors plan they have to explain to the public works, in this case people like you. Come to me when you have proof that this isn't about race! Come to me when you have proof that people were antsy waiting for a reason to loot! Like they lay in the cut waiting for someone to open the gates just to loot. Yeah. Bye. 2d
  •   bradpuet @mr._verde oh and youre a brotha. damn. 2d
  •   mr._verde Ohhh I'm so sure there are smoke and mirrors! Obama is behind this, the brown family is behind this and smart individuals are behind this that in this case what ever the ruling was that their should not be people in the street blocking traffic, looting, rioting, burning community property! Oh so let me guess the police set those fires?? Trashed the Walgreens?? At the end of the day you have just ruined people's lives and jobs for the sake of a kid who committed a crime and had to pay for it... Sorry the outcome was death but he made his choices and that lead to his fait. Just because you are down there and take fleshly photos don't mean squat. The people should be more afraid of what their own community can to do to them than the police. 2d
  •   mr._verde And no I'm not a "brotha" I'm African American and Hispanic thank you very much so my mind set is a lot greater than yours on life. I've dealt with both sides and the struggles. Try not to stand behind your camera to long 2d
  •   mr._verde It isn't about race because if a black cop would of shot that kid no one would have said anything!! Just would have been another hoodlum shot in the streets and it would have been totally justified by the community. You never seen a black cop in court for killing a black kid!!! Because the cop is white ohhhh it's all about cop killing black folks now??!! Come at me when you have a strong basis for argument. Other than that sit your ass down and take notes. 2d

bradpuet I had the opportunity to shoot a youth boxing training session at Aztec Gym before they went out and defended their belts. There were 4 kids who had at least a belt or two. Watching theses kids talk about and be about boxing was truly interesting. In the squared circle they were gladiators. Outside they were normal 3rd and 4th graders who were interested in seeing their photos and talking about girls and talking about video games and schoolwork.

Parents, what extracurricular activities do you place your kids in? What do you see as most beneficial for them?

bradpuet Gotta shoot some concerts lately and it's been real fun. Love that I gotta stay on my toes. Street photography has definitely helped me out in that aspect. This is Capt Cako of the Hot Rain Band. 1mon

bradpuet I had a dream that you stood right in front of me
And called to me in black and white
Though I could see you
I couldn't reach you
You faded into the light

bradpuet Why can’t we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn’t work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos. ~Charles M. Schulz
