We're taking a much needed break through the weekend to spend time with our family. Stay tuned next week for a lot of new pictures! Happy Thanksgiving!

On November 8, 2010, I took a trip with photographer Philip Thomas to a town called Picher, Oklahoma. We were there to document what is, for the most part, a ghost town. A former lead mine caused toxic acid to leak into the water supply, and chat particles from the mine made the air quality poor and then sink holes started developing around town, sucking up homes and businesses. The government offered home owners $55 per sq. foot to sell their homes and move out of town. Most did. Then a tornado came through a few years ago and flattened a lot of the town. What is left though is completely empty. You can walk through churches, schools, funeral homes, business, and homes. Thanks for looking.

Are you an active duty bride? Is your groom a man in uniform? If either of these applies to you, then Brides Across America wants to salute you for your service by offering you a free wedding dress! (Yes, you read that right... FREE!)
Today and tomorrow at A Fitting Image in Little Rock, and at various other dates and locations in the near future nationwide, this organization is handing out free dresses to military brides as a token of thanks for their sacrifices. What a great idea!
Visit their website to see if you qualify, then get yourself over there for your free dress! You deserve it!
A big thank you to Heather over at All in the Details for getting the word out about this one... We never would have heard about it otherwise! Also thank you to Amelia Phillips Hale, our former associate who now owns Dreamland Images with her husband, Dan, in South Carolina, for capturing the beautiful image featured above. It was taken at a military wedding she shot with us in 2008, and we thought it was a perfect fit with this post. We miss you guys!
