Bringing sexy back!!!!!

Now who came up with the rule that you have to be “bone skinny” to be sexy? Over the past few months I have had sexy women from all walks of life step out of their box and get “down wit it” I am a visual artist and I see beauty in everyone and everything, even if they don’t see it themselves. Now some women describe themselves as “phat”, “thick” or “Voluptuous” whatever the name, sexy is in all packages and I know this from seeing them in action in front of my lens. Today I’m posting this for all of you women who know your sexy but are a little timid about breaking out of that shell, BE BEAUTIFUL, BE BOLD, BE SEXY, AND MOST IMPORTANT……….. BE YOU! Much love from D.Luttery.

This is your brain on drugs!

Where do I start? Well some things are shown to totally degrade a race of people so let me start by saying that I am not trying to exploit anyone or any race by this post. It all started yesterday, I needed to get out and away from the house so I packed up my gear and headed out to the southside with my cousin Ell to his barber shop. Now this isn’t the best nor the safest place in the city but entertaining for someone like me who lives in an area that is well maintained by the homeowners. I learned yesterday that this neighborhood is called the new “boystown” and its a trip to see so many thugged out homosexuals. Outside of that there are a lot of “dopefiends” as well. The people that come in and out of the shop are from all walks of life varying from rich to poor and male and female.

I used the greater part of the day talking and having a good time with people that I have met at the shop from my previous times there. I go from the inside to the outside, standing in front of the shop watching the people pass by and checking out the scene. Every five minutes or so I get someone who screams “loose squares” or selling cd’s, dvd’s, purses, you name it you can get it there, hell one guy was given a trek 800 series bicycle for free. Now this is where thing’s start to change. Its starting to get dark outside and the “crazies” are starting to show up and show out. Outside of the shop we’re all chillin talking about life and about three doors down there is a congregation of “fiends” just hanging out with their kids talking loud, arguing on the phone, starting shit with people passing by in their cars on top of other various things.

Then out of nowhere, up pops one of the neighborhood “cluckers” just being herself dancing putting on a show. Now this is where thing’s start to bother me because she is acting out in front of all these little kids. For one the kids shouldn’t have been out there this late in the first place but look at where the parenting is coming from. Now the dancing is getting extremely raunchy for little kids to be seeing and they are out there right along with other lost souls cheering her on. I ran in the shop and grabbed my camera and came out and shot a few photos for the blog because I couldn’t believe how everyone was enjoying her make a complete ass of herself.

Some put blame on “the man” but this is a direct reflection of “WE” as a people contributing to the destruction of what our positive ancestors left for us to maintain. How can things change if your a willing participant? Not only are people dying by bullets but even worse they are dying from the lack of understanding that it starts with self first. PEOPLE IF YOU DON’T BEGIN SELF PRESERVATION NOW OUR KIDS WILL FOREVER BE LOST IN A WORLD WHERE THEY WONT BE ABLE TO SUCCEED BECAUSE OF THE EXAMPLES THAT ARE BEING SET! THE WORLD IS BIGGER THAN THE BLOCK THAT YOU HANG OUT ON EVERYDAY……….. GOD SPEED.

Cook County Hospital, My life began here.

Living in Chicago is a very good thing for those of us that love it here. Some may dispute that New York or Los Angeles is better but when you Bleed hot dogs with no ketchup, Italian beef dipped with hot peppers, and Chicago style pizza who can top that? The fact that were broke bothers me because everything here is being sold to the highest bidder. I took a picture of Cook County Hospital not only because the architecture is AMAZING but also my life began there. This is one of those must have things to put in the photo album just because……….

Puerto Rico……. This ones for you!

In my travels around Chicago I had to stop and get a shot for all my “Ricans” out there. I was being looked at kinda strange and I had a load of beautiful women questioning me about my photography. In all it was a good time just standing there doing what I do.
