Doors of Perception - Building Blocks - August 17, 2007

Building Blocks

Calgary is forever rebuilding itself.
The last three days were about rebuilding my laptop from scratch thanks to ADOBE who does not support Windows 2000 with the new CS3 suite.
I had to switch to windows XP
Whas it painful? YES
Whas it worthwile? YES
Photoshop gets better and better, I have no regrets for the old analog system, spending half a life in a darkroom while bathing in disgusting chemicals.

Doors of Perception - MJ in Chicago - August 21, 2007

MJ in Chicago

06:15 Early start driving Celeste and a friend to the Greyhound Bus Station. She is going to a BC lakeside area for a few days.

Now at work, I just spent 2 hours on the phone with ADOBE, trying to solve the issue about activating the CS3 suite.
It is working now, and I tested Photoshop with this "in waiting" Chicago pic from last January.

Doors of Perception - Chicago Impressions 1 - August 22, 2007

Chicago Impressions 1

The Chicago set is taking shape, I work on one photograph everyday trying not to think about the last one. I try to process each image for its own value, working towards the original idea for the image, why I took the photo in the first place, what was I trying to capture.

Doing so, I am still recording honestly what is important in my day. The output is more from my "in" life, that's all. At least its the way I see it, experience it. I am still out there everyday with my point and shoot in my hand and my eyes open; ready for the next one.

Friday!!! At last! I am taking the afternoon off; I have no plan yet.
Just got two calls for contract work. Do I need more work? NO!
Do I need the money? YES! I need to get more info before I can make a decision; I am looking forward for a weekend with NOTHING to do.

Hi Christian- I think it is masterful the way you put so much art into the piastic-coated building site. I took some pictures of historic buildings recently and really learned that it is quite a trick to make buildings speak the way you do. nice to have a beard to sometimes grow or not. If one pops up on me I am quite dismayed, though...
