Demetrye a.k.a. H.C.

by Lucky Red Hen on June 21, 2008

It was Demetrye’s birthday recently (“Happy Birthday, H.C.!”), and I missed it :( But here are some pics I took of him to make up for it.

I noticed I picked all the serious looks, but he really DOES have a terrific smile and a great sense of confidence that oozes into the camera. He, his wife, and I became fast friends and I can’t wait until we hang out again (they’re down south in Longview).

I was raised to see people and not the color of their skin, so when I mentioned to Demetrye that I hadn’t taken pictures of a chocolate dude, I didn’t think anything of it until he started laughing profusely. My intent was to warn him that it might take a little longer for me to get my settings right so I wouldn’t under-expose his pictures, not to offend him (his wife is a photographer, so I figured he knew what I was talking about). Luckily, he took it the way I meant it (he has an excellent sense of humor; he laughs at all my jokes – even the lame ones), especially after giving him his new nickname, Hot Chocolate (or H.C. for short).

Here’s some Hot Chocolate in June for ya…

See?! He really DOES have a great smile (and laughs at my lame jokes)…
Demetrye with his beautiful wife, Elena…

EDIT: Here’s Elena’s blog post about these.

Shannon, H.C. says that you rock… You had really captured him, especially in the one of him laughing–those are my absolute favorite. What can I say? My husband is HOT!!! Can’t wait to get those pictures so I can print them. Now you have to come out and visit us. Just let us know when you can.
