**Whether or not you know me, please do not copy my photographs. If you want to use one, let me know and we can discuss it.**
Many of my pictures are related to artcar events I have participated in with my wife Emily and her two cars (MondrianMobile and VainVan) and other friends. I'm working on my own artcar, for which I am showing some in-progress pics.
I've also been snapping lots of images of signs, particularly in the SF Bay Area, and other odd or miscellaneous stuff.
A couple of the Flickr groups I have contributed to:
National Trust for Hysteric Preservation (NT4HP: photos only)
International Society for Wondrous & Ecstatic Realness on Video (ISWERV: video only)
For example, you can click my name at the bottom of the NT4HP page to see my pictures in that pool.
"Frank Synopsis" is a name I came up with for singing (artcar) parody songs a la Sinatra.

FYI, if you comment on or favorite one of my pictures but none of your pictures are available to me -- well, thanks but no thanks. I will block you.

""Frank Synopsis" is a good egg and the king of puns. He has a thoughtful photographic eye and the perfect personality to make Flickr sing. He's a joy to have around. Saturate yourself in his world. You'll be all the better for it."
