BRADLEY COOPER WEARING A HEFTY, AGAIN. SHERYL LEE RALPH ON BLACK GIRLS ROCK PLUS MY SNOWY LANCASTER PIXS

PhillyChitChatter:

Celebrity Hair Stylist and Nbeauty Inc. salon owner, Naeemah Johnson, had the honor and privilege of extending her sought after hair care services at the BLACK GIRLS ROCK!™ 2011 televised special held at the historic Paradise Theater in Bronx, NY. BLACK GIRLS ROCK!™ 2011 will premiere on BET on Sunday, November 6, 2011 at 8 P.M. Naeemah styled actress/activist/wife of Sen Vincent Hughes – Sheryl Lee Ralph’s sexy wavy hair, by creating a deep side part, and used a barrel curling iron to create a halo of waves that were draped away from the actress’ face. The re-vamped look was heavily inspired by Farrah Fawcett’s 70’s glam.

Bradley Cooper pulling double duty yesterday. During the day he was back out on the Upper Darby streets, then last night he was filming interiors in a diner. Deets coming soon. Looks like Chris Tucker is gone already, no sign of Robert Deniro or Julia Stiles, and BC is still wearing that ugly trash bag running suit.

Philly Film Girl is back from fun in the sun and hiding near the set to bring us up to date on the different locations Bradley’s character is running in the trash bag.

I was surprised as many of you were that it snowed last Saturday, but oh my the rarity of snow while the leaves were still on the trees I knew I’d be waking up early to head out to some of the most beautiful country scenes I know, in Lancaster, Pa.
It’s beautiful to be unique
It’s almost like a Christmas card
I saw a lot of this, thankfully not in the road too many times.It’s almost like he’s saying, oh no here comes that HughE Dillon again, he’s so fascinated with our lives.
I was all happy shooting them without their knowledge, but then dad turned around and I pretended I was on the phone cause I don’t want them to know I am stealing their souls.
And of course you know I love photographing the Amish. It’s completely oposite of what I normally am attracted to like the restaurant scene, crazy nightlife, galas, social activity, fame whores, action, design, socialites, noise complication, confident people, fashion, drama, Philly, people.

Some of the most beautiful trees on country roads are at the curve of the road
OMG blown up this is one of my favorite photos event. 6 girls on bikes. I was traveling on old Lancaster Pike in the opposite direction, and spotted them. I had to make a K turn somewhere passed them, hoping they didn’t turn down a side street. I finally caught up with them, but then knew I needed a side street or commercial driveway to get the shot, plus remember I didn’t want them to see me so I had to use my long lens too. Finally another mile up the road I found the perfect spot, and this is the shot I got.
Then I continued down the side street and drove among the Amish farms. I remember in college I did a paper on the Amish in Maryland, and became friendly with a family. They never wanted their photo taken and I respected that, but my fascination never waned and now every 4 – 6 months I travel to Lancaster to photograph the wonders of their world.
oh and I came across several long distance bike riders too.
I think this is my favorite shot. I love how the snow fell in between the crops and made the design
Amish snowmen. I had passed an Amish snowman with a straw hat earlier in the day, but it was in the shadows and the shot didn’t come out.colorful
or BW. What do you think?
