Why can’t two people in love legally be together? What’s it to someone else how a couple wants to spend their lives? Those claiming to be standing for God’s word, how is supporting “love” against God’s word? God is love. Love does not discriminate. No matter who finds it. Everyone should have equal rights. Plain and simple.

Atlantic City, along with other parts of the East Coast, such as New York, were hit pretty hard by Hurricane Sandy on Oct 30, 2012. The disaster took many cars, personal treasures and homes away leaving many physically and emotionally distraught.

Many across the nation have been donating clothes, money and food to the victims of this storm. I know Fema still provides help up until December 15, 2012. I’ve already donated clothes myself. Operation Hat Trick in Atlantic City raises $500,000 for Sandy charities and other great things are going on to help those in need.

I created this self portrait, partially inspired by Deep Cotton‘s Song, “We’re Far Enough From Heaven Now We Can Freak Out” as a fun photo exercise which actually embodies the support we all have been giving. The lyrics “Who will cook? Who will clean? Who you paint the fence?” go hand in hand to what everyone here is doing and has done to help provide.

“Who will cook? Who will clean? Who will paint the fence?” Lyrics taken from “We’re Far Enough From Heaven Now We Can Freak Out” song by Deep Cotton. Modeled, photographed and edited by Nastassia Davis

Finally did something about these thoughts in my head pertaining to a song I’ve been playing on my headset for weeks. Check out Deep Cotton’s new tune “We’re Far Enough From Heaven Now We Can Freak Out”.

Creating this was fun, and a bit uncomfortable due to the cold and occasional folks passing by as I snapped away with my remote control. I’ve been wanting to do this photo for some weeks now but always had some silly excuse as to why I should put it off for another day. Well it’s here, and I love this!

It’s a photo composite where more than one image are combined into one. Background comes from Hurricane Sandy wreckage photos I shot about a month ago, and second part was shot three days ago at the same spot.
