I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do for my birthday, and I thought, well, what do I enjoy doing? I enjoy taking photos. So I figured, i'd set up a shoot with a bunch of friends and just have a good time hanging out and taking awesome group photos. I couldn't think of a better way to spend my birthday.

By no means is this the full gamut of the colorful people I surround myself with from time to time, and some faces were definitely missed, but it was what it was. And it was !@#$ing fun to do. At the end of the day I can sit back and see this fun image I set out to do with people who are awesome.

Lately, i've been going through older photos of the people i've surrounded myself in years past, and when you look back it's really like a revolving door of people. If I compared this photo to a group photo I took when I turned 24, only like 2 people from this photo were involved with my life around then.

It's crazy how things change, and looking at the cast of friends/people thorough the years certainly highlight that.
