Running away into you

A piece for a short film based on a song by the same name written by John Frusciante.

Drive up and down thru water
Live where your poor
i heard between snores
Sighing babys go to work

crying days rooted lurk
Thru the back of the room
Play him a tune down low
If the sun could melt like snow
I would run to you and flow into 
A cloud melt running away into you.

Growing up in a City of Angels

This is simply one of the best montages of Los Angeles I have ever seen. The clip is from “The Canyons” which was written by Bret Easton Ellis who I have been a fan of since I was a teenager.
The video captures L.A. in a perfect way. Behind the polished exterior lies a deep isolation, one I know very well. In Ellis’s books Less Than Zero and its sequel Imperial Bedrooms, there are characters and situations that are very unique to L.A. A lack of empathy and a darkness. I knew people like the characters in the books. Empty, always searching but getting nowhere. As the darkness started to surround me I knew I needed to get out before I let the city devour me. Videos like this make wonder if anything would be different if I went back. Will my ghosts still be there waiting? Maybe they never left me at all. Los Angeles is a city that holds a strange energy, one that contains beauty and death at the same time. The angels might watch out for you or turn your soul black. Everything was after all, my own experience. L.A. Is just as beautiful and isolating as the clip and I am proud I grew up there. Darkness and all.

"Candy" by John Michael Gill

One of my favorite photographs I have shot. I love the vibrant childlike nostalgic feel. I like photos that are either black and white or completely blown out color. High contrast.
