I take photographs entirely for fun these days. My current shooters are a Nixon D5600 and a Polaroid SX-70 (and other various 600 and Spectra cameras). I used to shoot with a Nikon D80 (2007-2017), and before that a sundry assortment of unremarkable digital Minoltas and Kodaks.

Everything posted here from 2015 forward is cropping- and Photoshop-free. I'd like to crop and color-correct these photos; oh, believe me, I would f*cking LOVE to crop and color-correct them. But I've taken that option away from myself. We'll just see how that turns out.

    "beatnikside is a genius of monumental proportions...ok now, since I've gotten your attention- this culture mutant has been known to leap tall tales in a single town. he is my compass from sin city to jet city and hopefully still remembers me at my best, even when I'm too old to wonder when that is (;-D)"

    "If a picture's worth a thousand words, this guy's photos are a freakin' novel, and a best-selling one at that."

    "I've been aquainted with Beatnik Sidearm (freakin' GREAT name, by the way) from Live Journal for several years now but I don't know him nearly as well as I should. FANTASTIC writer and chronicler of daily events and inner thoughts, turning the everyday into a little bit of special, king music compilation maker and more. Then, there's the photography. The dude has got it seriously goin' on. A pleasure to be aquainted and I certainly mean to make further strides to know him better. Thanks for sharing your talents, thoughts and humor with the world."

    "From Las Vegas to Seattle, Beatnikside's photos define cool, nostalgia and color. He'll take you to sweaty palm moments, rollerblade highs, and technicolor amazement. He's got the right drink, the right moment, and the right comination of grumpy and gracious."
