Large freestyle-pushed a bit with this one but ran out of time to get the background up to scratch before bailing OS again. Thanks to Stoops for the wall hook and good conversation! The close ups and high res shit will be due out in a book project early next year I believe. Go hard or go home-much love to all my friends pushing me to be my best..you all have a roll to play in this!
Thanks to Graff Central for the pic
Just a snapshot to let you all know that Bug's book is now up for sale. FINALLY. I'm sorry I took so long, I have no excuses really. But here you go.
Thanks so much for all your support and just everything. I owe a lot to my flickr friends!
Oh and, FM me if you live would like one and in the UK and would prefer not to buy from Blurb. :)
Moved to a different location (away from Batman) and finally was able to photograph the book...
I wish you all a wonderful first day of New Year 2011 !

Kurdes, de l'ombre à la lumière
Région autonome depuis 2003, le Kurdistan irakien, longtemps en proie à la guerre, est peu connu des occidentaux. À travers un travail inscrit dans la tradition de la photographie humaniste, Emmanuel Smague nous invite à découvrir un peuple chaleureux, au lendemain de son oppression sous le régime de Saddam Hussein. Il nous dévoile ainsi les multiples facettes de cet endroit du monde dont les habitants représentent la première richesse et nous ouvre les yeux sur une humanité réfugiée sur ses propres terres, celles de ses ancêtres. Le témoignage d’Emmanuel Smague renvoie les regards des Kurdes à nos propres indifférences, pour mieux les graver dans nos mémoires.

Kurds, from darkness to light
An independent region since 2003, Iraqi Kurdistan, war-torn for many years, is little known among Westerners. Through his work in the humanist photographic tradition, Emmanuel Smague invites us to discover a warm people as it emerges from the oppression of Saddam Hussein’s regime. He reveals to us the many faces of this part of the world where people constitute the main wealth and he opens our eyes to people who are refugees on their own land -- the land of their ancestors. Through Emmanuel Smague’s testimonial, our eyes meet the gaze of the Kurds’ eyes lifting the veil of our indifference and indelibly engraving images deep into our memories.

.the dust that gathers in the corner of books like crumbling words
Seen in the breakfast room of the French B&B we stayed in on our way south. So many really old books - its the smell, as well as the sight of them that is so good!
I was so happy I got bokeh out of my camera! It's a very rare occurence.

Suppongo di essere ciò che chiamano un decadente, che ci siano in me, come definizione esteriore del mio spirito, quei tremolii tristi di una stranezza posticcia che incorporano in parole inattese un’anima ansiosa e funambola. Sento che sono così e sono assurdo.
F. Pessoa - Il libro dell'Inquietudine
I guess I'm what they call a decadent, that there are in me, as exterior definition of my spirit, those sad shakes of an oddity incorporating in unexpected words an anxious and acrobat soul. I feel I'm like that and I'm absurd.

Book Off is a chain of used book stores in Japan. There seems to be one or more stores in every town of any size and they are usually pretty crowded at any time of day. Sometimes you can pick up some nice "coffee table" photography books for three or four percent of their original price. It is almost as cheap as looking at good photographs for free on Flickr. I must say though that it is nice to have a real paper photograph to look at once in a while.
DAY 25: Books
Some children today view reading as a boring chore, but experts encourage parents to recognise the importance of helping children to view books as another form of entertainment just like their other toys.
We have had children’s books around our home since our three year old Son was born. It started with cloth books and plastic bath time books and then things progressed to board books. Now though paper page books have come into their own and he just loves looking at books and listening while Mummy and Daddy read his favourite stories. Our little baby girl is similarly taking an interest in cloth books and we have no doubt that she will develop a great love for books, like her older brother.
Currently our little boy loves all the Disney stories in book form including Jungle Book, Bambi, Peter Pan and 101 Dalmatians. Annuals are another favourite including Bob the Builder, Postman Pat, Thomas the Tank Engine and Winnie the Pooh. Other books he loves include Ladybird books on a wide range of subjects including Visiting the Dentist, Going Swimming, Playschool and Busy Building Site. Having a large range of books available means that he doesn’t get bored and his interest in reading and books is constantly kept strong.
As today’s image hopefully shows, books come in all shapes and sizes, all with a great deal of colour. When you watch a child open a book, you can see straight away that their imagination is awakened and their minds appreciate hearing or reading the words on the pages come to life. As they learn to read the foundation laid during the early years bears fruit as children develop a lifelong love for reading.
Note: the set up for this image meant that the Bambi book was nearly a meter off the ground. There were a huge number of items keeping the books in place (wooden blocks, other books etc). We had one collapse where every book fell to the ground and we had to start again. Eventually we set the camera up with a deep depth of field, a direct link to the PC and we managed to get the required shot pretty quickly. This demonstrates that the time taken in setting up is rewarded.

Se love-t-elle en lui
Furtive elle en lui

S'échange -t-il d'aile en elle
Un homme sombre change en elle
Un ange bombe

No more pics till Weekend. Tonight I'm heading off to another mountain in CH, this time with my snowboard (night ride).
(a broken leg looks good on Flickr!!!) (very glamour)
Yes, I'm reading a book for the first time in years and what am I reading is but a "love story with a BITE", a VAMPIRE story.
I first watched it in a local tv, a Friday Night Special. I was fascinated with the main characters love to each other. So I bought my own DVD and read some reviews on the net. Still not contented, I bought my own book at amazon.
I am now a few pages away to "New Moon". And soon on buying the "Eclipse" and "Breaking Dawn". Not to mention the most awaited "Midnight Sun".
It is good to have a book you want to take whenever you wanted to escape to the fast pace of life.
Happy Friday Flickr friends.
