Stormy Throwback..

I have been diggin, in what?? Some old shoe boxes of Polaroids. In 06, there was a huge blizzard, i decided to take a 5 mile hike in it to my lady's house, good challenge, fun terrain, many bridges, etc. I also decided since it was wet, i did not want to take a digi camera, i opted for the Polaroid land camera, 440. The city is most serene when the snow falls, quiet, clean(kinda, well for like 5 minutes), peaceful.. enjoy the hot summer day with some throwback blizzard images.

A new term i created.. i'll do that, make a word up that only makes sense to me.. but i am in transition and reflecting upon that, and moving in a forward direction. nonetheless. It is an interesting time, happens all the time, things stop, new begin. I think the true issue with transition which is difficult, is not the old or the new, but the purgatory in-between, the unknown.

101.. and counting... amazing

So my grandma is 101 and is still growing.. it is amazing how humans as a species, as they get older, they get younger.. My grandma, eats, and talks gibberish, it is kinda depressing, but at the same time.. she has seen a great amount of history, people come and go, and just life.. It is inspiring to see all that... i love my grandma, here are some flicks.

In Progress.

The continuation, of well a life's work, who really knows.. Nonetheless, i bring you some new offerings from some foot journeys.. I am fascinated with the neighborhoods, between Sunnyside Queens and Greenpoint Brooklyn, one specifically that is known as Blissville. Within this boundaries, you will find a slice of old NYC, its contents: a cemetery, a handful of body shops and auto repair, and no jiffy lube, a few laundromats, a recently shut down strip club, a Best Western, aptly named City View (the entrance directly across form the cemetery), a firehouse, and a handful of factories, and trucking facilities, not to mention Silver Cup Studios a few blocks away. Here are some images from my walk, these may be the Greenpoint side of the journey, more to come, once i edit more..

Getting Focus at Night

For some reason lately, I have been really captured by the images I have been producing at night.. Not sure why, but I think that is the point, in general, to be struck by imagry.. the reason i originally picked up a camera. enough jabber... stuff to look at..

MORE flix... part 3

Xtra Flix from my Trip. part 2

Via 3 Weaks on the Road..

So I have pretty much explained in my previous post why I love NY so much.. Also how tired of the west I am. But to all sides there is another.. Following this rant are some photos from my journey.. Background: every 6 months I am in Vegas, for the MAGIC and Pool tradeshows, which are becoming a bit redundant, maybe I am outgrowing caring too much about a tshirt, nonetheless we are in Vegas. For photos people would think vegas is amazing, crazy buildings lite up.. But that is easy.. I try to find the nuances of repetitiveness in vegas.. and people, they are interesting as well. After staying at the Sahara hotel, for the past few years, we decided to switch it up.. We went to the Stratosphere, which was interesting.. it is worth the stay to go up to the top of the tower.. Vegas is amazing from that view, and in the same breath absolutely ridiculous. There is a full city, in the middle of the desert, that is miles away from anything, which has no culture, except for gambling.. On top of it, the aesthetic, is taking slices of all the other greatest global cities, places, and time periods, and making them attractions. As a New Yorker, it is fucking mind boggling, and I get over it, the minute I enter it.

Back to LA.. we headed to a handful of parties... Jayceeoh was in town.. and spun at a myriad of good events, The DO OVER, which is just a great vibe... cheers to the multitude of pitchers of Sangria.. all i have to say is damn.. Kicked it with Marc from Fenchurch, there is something nice about linking with a person that is from another city that has the same feelings on LA, ah.. this kinda is weak.. shall we sit here and get bent and talk some smack quietly together.. deal.. The interesting thing about LA is a party like the DOOVER, which has a great vibe, with much support from Stones Throw.. I feel something like that would never be that successful in NYC.. tipping my hat.

Look I have had a way too traditional blog entry to not hate on myself.. WHY MUST I FUCKING WRITE ABOUT MY LIFE.. on a Blog.. and WHY DOES EVERYONE ELSE.. I do not need to see every place you went... we really do not care.. There I said it.. My life is just as interesting.. so feel free if i have offended you to let me know, you careless about my fucking mundane life....

here are some flicks.. from the road..
