I found this photo the other day. I loved film, the process of patience and surprise. Digital is great, but you know..... Or maybe you don't?
Skating was my life. It shaped me in ways that are impossible to explain. The beauty of where I live now is there are skateparks everywhere. Its my sons turn now.
Took this because I love the angles of transitions.
"Self Portrait of me as a building"

Watching my son grow teaches me so much. I'm amazed constantly and thoroughly enjoy the way he navigates the world. Words become meaningless really. I love you
Futureboy checking out bugs.
I didn't take this shot. A woman offered to take our picture. I cropped in a bit. I love that she took this as we were either about to take the "real" picture or right after.
I think it may be close to impossible to catalog all the pictures I take. The digital age is a double edged sword. I mainly use technology for photos and music and building connections through art. It's a great thing to have a camera with me all the time, a notebook, etc. I am able to capture ideas on the fly but how will I not lose a lot of it to time?
Great show the other night at The Crocodile by Astronautalis and one of my favorite artists Buck 65. Check Buck65.com if you are unfamiliar.
Thinking of the beach.
I love the bus.
There is something so beautiful about the night, or early morning. I was walking to the local 7-11 at about 2:30 or 3 and noticed there was nobody around. Not a car on the freeway, not a cop, nobody except for me and it was perfect. I stood in the middle of the street waiting for someone or something to move, nothing. All I could hear was the electricity flowing all around me and it was perfect.

Self portrait of a very flawed man.. Collage, Photo, Paint.
It's so amazing when you find yourself surrounded by an image that calls you. This would be a great film location. Im not sure what it is, maybe the geometric aspect?
