Big Throwed Muzic

Some times the photography gods are cruel and sometimes they shower us with gifts. I spent some time at the office yesterday and then decided to see what there was to shoot on a dreary late afternoon. I had no ideas. When that happens I sometimes just drive around the riverfront around the Arch. What luck yesterday.

There were a bunch of people hanging out in front of the graffiti-permitted part of the floodwall with video equipment and lights. Skreeech over to the curb, grab camera from trunk and walk over to say howdy. Turns out it's the local hip hop group Big Throwed Muzic, led by Big Cheezy of Mo Chedda Records. They were out shooting a video with producer Da Fly Lady. These guys had it down. Big Cheezy, in the white tee shirt, is an imposing presence. More about him soon.

Yup, I'd say you hit the mother lode. Nothing cheesy about this image. Well done!

Mother lode was my exact thought! These don't come often but when they do you better have that camera ready.......and you did! Great shot B.

Not quite my cuppa but the photo exudes music and movement!

Well what time is it, then?
There seems to be some confusion but one thing's for sure, we're nearly there !!!

That bottom photo could almost have been kept for your Thursday arch series. The arch is distant but gorgeous.

Regarding yesterday's encounter, I can understand your sense of elation! I look forward to more photos of this group.

I didn't know there are gods of photography. *g* Anyway, I love this people shot. People give cities a human face.
