The Coke Evolution

I think I've come to accept that "Why (Black) Coca-Cola?" is second most asked question in my life after "How are you?" (of course). What makes it awkward is that I know the true answer to that question but I'd rather dodge that bullet with a commercial response that'll probably make you think 'Wow, she's so deep.'

Side Note: I know it's been a while since I've updated my blog but it's not exactly my duty to entertain fellow humans but I'm sorry nontheless. I have a tumblr though, that's updated ever-so-often: Tonygumonline

As I was saying, please don't fall into the trap of asking me that question but if it's a one-on-one encounter, the chances of me giving-in to answer truthfully are high. I do not wish to deny good people of the truth.

And for those of you, whom I will not be so fortunate to meet, stay tuned on this site. As unreliable as it is, you know you love it ;) haha. The point that I'm trying to make here is that I want to share the journey with you. It's an experience - it's The Coke Evolution. 

Stay tuned. Stay blessed.

Hey Fam, what up Fam

I've been quite occupied with varsity work but now that the term is close to an end, I figured an update is well deserved. These images were taken today. Yes, I literally don't waste time.
But what I'd really like to bring to your attention is my new muse (I'd like to think). Stacey Harper. While shooting this beauty, I could feel her nerves shooting through the lens. While posing, she made these awkward delicate gestures while trying to find a spot to set her eyes... I loved every second of it. 

This will not be the last time you see her (thank you for selling your soul to me, Stacey - baayybee).

Did you find Phys. Ed cool?

Did you like your over-enthusiastic (fat) teacher? I thought not.

Could we please just take a moment to imagine a better world and a life worth running those compulsory 3km's for? A coach worth getting ready and arriving on time for; a coach worth pushing that extra set for; a coach worth collecting those balls that are laaming on the other side for?

Well dear friends, here she is, here he is - your dream Phys. Ed coaches:

But honestly guys, I just wanted to shoot my two fams (yeah, I said 'fams') looking dead with a sport theme to correspond with it, so here it is. That's all there is to it. Sho. K, thanks. Bah.
