"Remember in life to stop and take the photos." adda dada

 

1) do not snatch my photos ...if i find them, i will be plenty pissed...

 

2) do NOT put racist, derogatory, rude, or evil nasty remarks in the COMMENTS. you will be blocked

 

3) do NOT ask me to pose for 'erotic' photos. I turned down Mapplethorpe and i will turn you down.

============================

 

ALL photos of people, clothed or otherwise, are of consenting adults!

 

Everyone was properly asked to have their photo taken. All animals were also asked to have their photo taken. yes, the kitties and puppies were told. Zoo animals were not.

 

There are NO stolen photos on my site. All photos have been taken by me (or by a friend when of myself.

 

ALL photos are properly marked according to FLICKR's guidelines...

 

Any photo showing nudity, genitals, or a sexual suggestion is marked RESTRICTED.

 

you must be AN ADULT / OVER 18 to view ANY of my PHOTOS whether the photo is SAFE-MODERATE-RESTRICTED!

 

There are no RUDE, NUDE or SEX ACTS photos on my site.

There are NO NUDE PHOTOS OF ME!

There are NO stolen PORN photos either.

 

Photos of ME in a police costume are just that...a costume! I am NOT a police officer-official-law enforcement.. I have NEVER represented that I am such either. I have always stated that it is a COSTUME at a PRIVATE (be it in public) PARTY. The cop costume is NEVER worn outside, and is only worn in private for Halloween events or leather-uniform appreciation events.

 

NOTE: anyone wearing a police costume: be aware that it is illegal to sport a real badge, & it is illegal to state you are a cop even if asked sexually-playfully. You will be arrested for impersonating a police officer if you do!

 

====================================

i love taking photos of the FOUND OBJECTS & SCARY THRIFT STORE ITEMS....all very dada (hence the aka...adda DADA) .

 

The SAN FRANCISCO STREET FAIRS/PARADES are for documentation & fun. They are the ones with the views.

Just because I took photos of some wild PUBLIC going-ons , THAT does NOT that mean i want to meet the like or see the like , or have a hook-up...

 

Most of my almost HALF - A- BILLION VIEWS views are for the WILD PHOTOS of the Street Fairs. There are absolutely NO naked or sex photos of me on my site nor anywhere else. (In my 20's, I was asked many time, even by Falcon/Brentwood, and I said NO thank you! So, don't even think of asking or hooking up with me!)

 

I am NOT interested in being your friend/family if you only post rude nudes or if you are stealing photos from the internet and posting them on 'your' site...be creative and photograph real people...

 

If you photograph anything that ADDA deems demeaning to humanity such as anything racist, sexist, anti-gay, violent, or hurtful...or pro-Republican (right wing)...you will be BLOCKED! There is no room in the world for such things...

 

btw: ADDA DADA is definitely OVER 18 YEARS OLD . I am in my 60's . I live in the USA, France, and Switzerland.

 

AND since FLICKR does not have this as a relationship category under 'SINGLENESS' ...adda will add his...NOT AVAILABLE. (Thank you for asking, it is very sweet to be considered...)

 

I can not comment on ALL the photos that i browse through on FLICKR, but i certainly appreciate all the undiscovered talent that is out there...so great to see creativity exposed...so many amazing photographers , so many photos...

 

thank you FLICKR.COM for the world as seen through the eyes of so many creative artists...

 

Flickr friend , MARECRISIUMM, found this quote in a book:

 

"Inanimate things, even if they were not works of art, seemed to demand from him more than a mere passive response; they could affect him in a deeply personal way, arousing in him feelings that ranged from active dislike or an awareness of being rejected, to love and mutual acceptance."

 

Naoya Shiga - A dark night`s passing (written in the 1920`s)

 

SO WHAT'S UP WITH THE DADA-ISM of the FOUND OBJECTS that ADDA DADA loves to photograph?

 

In a few words, besides that of NAOYA SHIGA, the FOUND OBJECTS photos are documentation of those objects which were 'lost' or placed at a unique setting for someone else to 'find'.

 

The FOUND OBJECT photo is one that has to be quickly composed and shot. ADDA only takes ONE photo so he hopes it is the one that will capture the essence of that object.

(ADDA does the same with his PEOPLE photos at the various FAIRS, too)

 

What was the begining of the object (person/company that created the object, the manufacture, the previous owner, why it was 'lost', if it will be 'found', what is it's next 'venture' from where it was 'found'. Will there be a future for the object?

 

Without being too 'heavy', it's like life ...

My buddy Adda is an amazing man...anyone who is lucky enough to befriend him will find out how kind, intelligent, funny, and caring he is. I count myself as one of the lucky people to have Adda in his life!!

addadada has been a shock to me! His intelligence, his wit, his humor, his incredible ability to find new angles at life, to consider worthy "unworthy" things. He knows Paris and France as many French or Parisians will never be able to because he also feels situations and judges people with infallible flair. He has often proved to be the first one to comment a photo in my sets that everybody had not noticed yet. He has often proved to be the first one to understand and appreciate the humor I saw in a situation. This is how he shocked me, positively! And then, his work!!! I say work because he is the first photographer that I meet that you cannot judge on one picture or a few pictures. You have to visit dozens or hundreds of his pics to understand his work: he is a gatherer. Some years ago, a film in France "LES GLANEURS ET LA GLANEUSE", from Agnès VARDA had a huge success. It showed the world of people who use to sift through the remains in a morning market and use what others have discarded. addadada makes his honey from all the pollen he gathers relentlessly. And he makes us smile and laugh and think. I cherish his prolixity, his originality and his creativity. I cherish his friendship! Merci, mon ami!

Oh Addadada, you handsome man you. Long have I envied your travels to lovely and exotic places and your lovely postcard writing! Always a pleasure to see your photos, close my eyes and dream I was there too. And your sense of seeing beautiful things in this world that most of us just pass by everyday is so charming. And you are yet another reason I need to be a gay man! (don't tell Zach or Ingmar!) Or need you men to straiten up for this girlie girl! Always the best of travels to you my dear and your wonderful mother as well! What an inspiring relationship! XOXO- Emza

I am still quite new to Flickr, and I have already had the chance to converse with people who interest and humour me deeply. Adda, this is the first testimonial I have done for anyone on here - and I am happy to say a few words about you. You have a wealth of knowledge of the cultural history that I excites me and which I find fascinating. I would have loved to have experienced the 70s clubs and scene as you had. However, I think that I would possibly not be here today, if that were the case. There is an air of Baron Munchausen (or even Zelig - right place, right time) to your stories - I am not saying that they are untrue, but you are a natural raconteur and a genuine eccentric - qualities I absolutely adore in a person. I will look forward to the book that is ready to burst from you. Get writing it now. Hold on, don't write for too long or you will be missed on here.

Yes, I would call Addadada a friend, if I may say so. From what I understood in my poor english is, that he is a lesbian porn-star with a Hello-Kitty-Fetish who lives in boxes with no time concept at all, a disco bunny in need, always well informed in super-bowl - but anyway: I love him and I am glad, he is around.

Yes, I would call Addadada a friend, if I may say so. From what I understood in my poor english is, that he is a lesbian porn-star with a Hello-Kitty-Fetish who lives in boxes with no time concept at all, a disco bunny in need, always well informed in super-bowl - but anyway: I love him and I am glad, he is around. I love his humor and his sensitivity, I am on my knees, when I read the stories, he add to his pictures. He obvisiously hits me right into my heart. But folks, I know his secret: It is his wonderful mother. Take your time and cruise through his pages, you won't regret it. All of a sudden your own life will appear so easy, well originaized and....(if I may say so): boring. Hurray for Addadada!

Adda, is 'the man'. His found art is amazing. He is an upbeat, supergenerous, gregacious and articulate fellow who i find facinating.

December 29, 2005

Adda is the dadda of dada. If there is something, addadada will, you can be sure. I quote Richard Huelsenbeck: "Dada is the sun, Dada is the egg. Dada is the Police of the Police."
