A nice start of the day!



Dan writes from home:


"Dear Family,


Everyone praises the Early bird that gets the worm, but everyone ignores the plight of the early worm that crawled out of a comfortable lair and dutifully did his duty. Just as people are ceremoniously apologizing for . . . . atrocities committed centuries ago, we should erect a statue to the early worm and establish an Early Worm Society to pay continuous homage. Perhaps people we know have had worms and would appreciate the belated attention to their little companions


All is well, unless this e-mail gives evidence to the contrary.






i love that man.

Louis Armstrong

On a Cocoanut Island

recorded August 18, 1936,

65 years ago :-)


This was taken while on a most incredible trip to the Salton Sea and sand dunes. No words can describe what this picture means to me, though I did try to write a blog post about it. Lots of behind the scenes pictures as well.


Today I am going to a reception for the opening of the Digital Darkroom show at the Annenberg Space for Photography. I really hate promoting things sometimes (self promotion blah blah blah) but this time is different. I really believe in this show and the other artists featured. I went to preview it yesterday and left feeling inspired to push myself harder and to explore the limits of digital photography and editing...though even saying "limits" is very wrong....the point of the show is that there are no limits, and these people that I get to show with prove that. Some of my prints are next to Maggie Taylor and Jerry Uelsmann who I got to meet yesterday...a complete pinch me moment. The other highlight: Russell Brown, a creator of Photoshop, gave a speech to the artists yesterday and said "If you are in this show, it is because I want to be you"....I can die happy. I couldn't have asked for a more amazing moment to have in my life.


Anywho...enough of that, I know how annoying it is to read business stuff when you're trying to look at a picture. I feel really strongly about the show so I wanted to get that out. Here is a trailer for the show with bits taken from the documentary that runs throughout the day while the show is open.

Secret #15:


Sometimes I'm not too good with words in real life. Especially when I get kind of insecure in a situation, for some reason. Think it has to do with experiences I made in my childhood with teachers, other kids, family... That's why I sometimes feel like better letting out stuff through written words, which go through my head. Maybe it's also because I have too few people I could discuss these things with, or when I meet them I think of other things...

Thanks to Kem for supplying the ginger crack so I could pump this one out in the rainy weather. And thanks Font for the pic!

Paid a visit to my father in the weekend and found some "treasures" to take photos of.


Flypaper processing.

Or welcome distraction, anyway. It's a regular-sized pencil, which shows the scale of this little guy.

A warning sign, Accident prone area. i shot this with a Ricoh GRD4 + simulated cross process film.

They say if a writing spider writes your name in his web you will die. They also say they are beneficial creatures. I'm not sure I believe either

Thanks Chuck for the sketch!

The Burger Joint at Le Parker Meridien Hotel, New York City

This photo was taken right before this dude punched me in the stomach and threw the typewriter out the window and it hit an Avon lady in the face.

Photograph taken with a standard lens mounted inverted (canon 18-55 mm EF-S IS). For this I used an adapter. The main difficulty is the focus. Having reversed the lens, focusing is performed manually. You can not change diaphragms (Set at 16 by unscrewing the lens with the "depth of field" button pressed). The display does not show image, because of the dim light. You have to shoot the picture and see the result.The scene was illuminated with a flash Yongnuo 468. Approximate focus distance: 4 cm


Fotografía realizada con un objetivo de serie montado en invertido (canon 18-55 mm EF-S IS). Para ello usé un adaptador. La principal dificultad es el enfoque. Al tener invertida la lente, el enfoque se realiza de manera manual. No puedes modificar diafragmas (Fijado en 16 desenrroscando el objetivo con el botón de "profundidad de campo" apretado). El visor no muestra imagen, por culpa de la escasa luz. Tienes que disparar la foto, y ver el resultado. La escena fue iluminada con un flash Yongnuo 468. Distancia de enfoque aproximada: 4 cm


Created using my ACDSee program's granite effect.


Wishing you all a wonderful SUNday.

Lifes light.

Life is light.

You can make light do anything you want to.
