There is a very loose, slightly ironic, connection between these photos from two assignments I covered today.
One was early in the morning down in Horn Lake, MS to cover the city’s participation in the Great American Clean-Up and made this photo of young Alex Freeze hauling a bag of trash that was practically as big as him.
The second photo is for a business profile on hair stylist, Feras Hdaib, working on Jasmine Crew’s prom hair. As I am finishing up with Feras, he tries to get me to schedule my own hair cut. I politely and professional dodged the question, but in my mind I was saying “STAY AWAY FROM MY GLORIOUS MANE!” Then Feras runs out of the salon to hand me a coupon to give to my girlfriend for a 1/2 off first visit.
So, if I don’t have a girlfriend, then didn’t Feras technically litter by giving me a coupon I won’t use since I will ultimately throw it away?
I guess my day was garbage in and garbage out.
