We were crazy to endeavour this photoshoot yesterday. Maybe you’ve seen the news headlines about the West Nile outbreak here in Dallas. While shooting by this swampy creek, we were eaten alive by mosquitoes and chased by bees, which is even less fun than it sounds in 100 degree heat and 100 percent humidity. These photos are inspired by the tropical state of decay our city is in. Here’s to hoping neither my mom nor I contracted West Nile!
