MY FLICKR EXPLORE PHOTOS (Or at least the most I've had at one time.)
1. In absence of empathy, it rained flowers, 2. Untitled, 3. Carrie Watch the Sky!, 4. Monsoon, 5. I-10, 6. The palms at First Friday, 7. shiny red shoes

I have created a group called 'The Fairer Sex' which focuses on non-demeaning photos of women, something there is far too little of.

I am very protective of who I let into this group. If you are interested, please read the group rules and apply for entry.

I have also created a group called 'Grainy Day' which fairly treats grainy photos. My photos are constantly insulted for being too grainy or noisy. In many cases (although not all) this is an artistic choice. I know I'm not the only one who feels that graininess can be a benefit. If you feel the same way, you have a home here.

"A psychotic world we live in. The madmen are in power. How long have we known this? Faced this? And - how many of us do know it? Perhaps if you know you are insane then you are not insane. Or you are becoming sane, finally. Waking up. I suppose only a few are aware of all this. Isolated persons here and there. But the broad masses... what do they think? All these hundreds of thousands in this city, here. Do they imagine that they live in a sane world? Or do they guess, glimpse, the truth ... ?"

I started photography in late May 2006.

I've never owned a camera before now.

It's just something I knew that I needed to do.

All the wounded boys, your life has sighed 'goodnight, my friends, goodnight'"

All I have is my love of love. And love is not loving."

"We knew all the answers
And we shouted them like anthems
Anxious and suspicious
That God knew how much we cheated"
- Scissor Sisters

"Trouble with dreams is they don't come true,
and when they do, they can catch up with you."
- Eels

"God surrounds me, I am fine."

"Life without knowledge is death in disguise."

"I am a writer, writer of fictions
I am the heart that you call home
And I've written pages upon pages
Trying to rid you from my bones"

"I wipe my feelings off,
Makes me untouchable for life"
- Spoon

"I think this is the future and that was the past
But a part of me doesn't fully believe that
I know you're somewhere, caught in-between
The space behind the sky that hangs above me."
- The Sound of Urchin

"The magnifications explore
There slowly emerges a pattern
Details you normally ignore
You notice really what matters
It isnt a time or a place
Only an ebb and a flowing
A currently weakening space
Occuring, connecting, and growing"
- Built To Spill

"Your servant here, he has been told
To say it clear, to say it cold,
It's over, It ain't goin' any further.
And now the wheels of heaven stop,
You feel the Devil's ridin' crop
Get ready for the future,
It is murder"
-Leonard Cohen

"Burning every bridge that I crossed.
Just to find some beautiful place to get lost"
- Elliott Smith

"What are we coming to
No room for me, no fun for you
I think about a world to come
Where the books were found by the golden ones
Written in pain, written in awe
By a puzzled man who questioned
What we were here for
All the strangers came today
And it looks as though theyre here to stay"
- David Bowie

"Make sure you never
ever stand in each other's way.
When you got something that you gotta say
that's real.
Look to each other.
That's the thing that we're gonna do.
From now on that's what we're gonna do
to you."
- Lambchop

time is my own.
And I feel so alive,
but feel so alone."

They rise and fall
- Windsor for the Derby

"Each day this concrete cave
It takes our love away
You're holding on too tight
The city won't make this right
And I swear
that the proof is everywhere
Romance isn't scared
And our hearts are beating cold
Like we were old"
- The Rosebuds

"He fills his head with culture
He gives himself an ulcer"
- Gang of Four
