I was lucky enough to be asked to take a photos of a few kids on prom day. They chose Oakland’s serene Morcom Rose Garden as the venue. We spent some time spent looking for the “perfect spot for pictures”, which turned out to be a waste of time, because as you can see, I could have shot these kids up against a cinder block wall and gotten great results. Seeing these terrific-looking young people brought back some fond memories of my own, and made me realize just how much some things have changed.
I think it’s safe to say that prom dresses and human beings are getting better-looking. If you need further proof, check out the rest of the pictures.
