the art, photography, and words of brandon hayman

Some weeks are famous.  Fashion Week for instance, and Shark Week is yet another.  But for myself and the photographers I work with this past week is #Faculty Week.  Next week marks the beginning of the school year for North Texas and this past week we’ve been finding ourselves in some very interesting settings for that infamous faculty group.  Since I realize that most teachers hate being in the group shot, I for sure wasn’t going to get them to sign up to publish their hardworking faces on the internet so I inserted myself in their places.  Hashtag, selfie.

This past weekend the wife and I (and friends) took time out of our awesome Sunday to make it even more awesome by creating our own terrariums.  Where can you make these awesome terrariums you ask?  Why, at Ephemera off of Magnolia in Fort Worth.  Every third Sunday, Suz-the creator, host, and master terrarium maker will guide you through the fun process of creating your own terrarium.  And, when you’re all done you get to take it home!  What what!  Did I also mention she serves mimosas?  Oh, okay, well she serve mimosas too!  Take time to check these guys out at their shop or even online, look for ephemerafw here on tumblr or Instagram and Facebook.  Run, don’t walk.  These people are a part of why I love where I live.  

p.s. yes, mine has a flying pterodactyl.
