I took a nice trip to a local Santa Rosa County spot... the Bagdad Barber Shop on Old Bagdad Highway. It was built in 1964 by Mr. Pendleton and has remained in the hands of master barbers through the years. Most recently, the location's newest owner, Cathy Whorff, a fifth generation barber has spruced up the place, but has kept its charm. The red-white-and-blue themed barber poles, nostalgic barber memorabilia will take you back a few decades to a time when great care and tradition was important to men's grooming. A straight edge, warm towels, and a powder finish are included in the $6 cut! I enjoyed photographing the quaint little shop and listened to many a story and history of my local stomping ground. Hope you enjoy the pics!
Take a look at a couple of good 'ole friends here! What fun taking photography, typography and our kids in one photo! I have been experimenting with custom-drawn chalkboard backdrops for photos. The type is hand-drawn by me with the boys' initials, words and graphics. I like to add the year and location so you can go back and know when the photo was taken. I think it is a fun way to say more with a photo. I can draw any words or themes, create different poses, and photograph outside in natural light. What do you think?
Enjoy my studies and ramblings on art... bookmaking, printmaking, sketchbooks, photography, and my love of my local stomping ground,
