One afternoon, after I had my plans for drinks cancel on my for the evening I decided that sitting around just wasn’t exactly what I wanted to do. So, I pulled up the local concert schedule and found something that I’d be interested in shooting. A few emails & phone calls later, I was set up with photo passes & a +1 for Acoustic Alchemy‘s show at the State Theater. They were a really relaxing show, nice & chill tunes by some very talented musicians.
When I first got to the 600 Block Party around 6:30’ish there was a good amount of people mulling around, the police had the block shut down and still I was hesitant to walk in the middle of the street out of habit. Wandering around a bit as the sun went down and DJ Mega started livening everyone up with some music I got my self into the “block party” groove. The evening’s party culminated with an amazing fashion show produced by several of the designers on the 600 block (MISRED Outfitters , All Sewn Up Boutique, 1 of 1 Customs with Rasta, House of Merch, and more).
Thoroughly, an amazing evening with, ridiculous turn out, packed venues, hot models, exceptional fashions? you get the idea. This was what First Friday (the monthly downtown block party here in St Petersburg, FL) really should be!
