"My name is Mikal Boukhari. I live in sunny south Florida. I started taking pictures about seven years ago when I shot one Dreadloc’d Guy in San Fran. I fell in love with the hair and the storys and desided to shoot as many loc’d people as I can for a coffee table book. I shoot on the thirds a lot."

Sitting on the bench in the park this past Sunday, its was Mothers Day, and Ronnie and I just finished taking some updated photos of him.

“So this is going to be a yearly thing with us huh…”

I laughed. It almost seems that way since the last time Ronnie and I got together was around this time last year. It’s never intentional though.

I met Ronnie about 2 years ago. I was coming home from work one evening on the 46 a local bus here in Philly. When he boarded a few stops after I did, immediately my eyes zoomed in on his beautiful medium thick locs styled to perfection.

He sat down several seats behind me looking tired and unapproachable so I changed my mind about speaking to him, but when he got off at the same stop I did, I got a sudden change of heart. I complimented him on his hair and told him a little about the blog. At this time the blog was almost 6 months old still growing. Tia and I both were ready to take some promo pics to print up flyers which I told him about all while handing him my business card. I urged him to call me, but in the back of my mind I didn’t think he was.

A few days later, I received a pleasant email from Ronnie wanting to know more information about the shoot Tia and I was planning. I was so excited! I gave him the details, he showed up with another brother we invited name Jae and the rest was history.

Ronnie is a quiet type of guy, a little shy in fact. When we get together, I often sneak photos of him because I can sense his tenseness when I tell him to pose. Its all good because we always get great pictures so Im definitely not complaining!
