Summer 2008 Update

I don't think I've updated this profile since I got started here, so...

I am definitely not a film snob, but I really dig taking pictures with some film toy cameras as well as some different Polaroid formats. When I'm not using those, I use digital. No big deal.

I am sort of all over the place with the photos I take. I don't have a single theme. Not everything looks the same. I don't think I even have a style. Waaah! But I have fun, so Weeee!

Also, I've found that I love taking pictures of people's stuff. You live nearby? You got stuff? You wanna let me take a picture of you with your stuff? Well, cool. Let me know.

I'm not much for Photoshop, textures, effects, etc. -- I kind of burned out on playing around with that. I'll use it a bit, I have nothing against it. I just don't have a particularly creative use for it, so most of my Photoshop photos end up looking like they might have been done by monkeys.

There, that's all I'm saying for now.

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

Stay-at-home dad. I'm tired.




LIKES:
- Ice cream
- Pizza
- Dora the Explorer
- Reading Rainbow

DISLIKES:
- Tomatoes
- Almost any meat
- That talking pirate guy on SpongeBob SquarePants
- Stinky the Plant

I am pretty sure that's my list of likes/dislikes, but I've spent the last six years with two little girls, so I'm not exactly sure if that's my list or not. Those will have to do.

If I seem like a good match for you, you should probably see a psychiatrist.




I sure do love a good salad.

    "I started to write this as a comment, and in rereading it, I thought that sounded like a testimonial.

    So here it is. Only the third one of these I've written since I got to Flickr in 2004.

    How the hell have I missed your photostream until now???

    And why can't I just click one thing to automatically make all your photos go straight into my favorites?

    Such wonderful work! I look forward to everything you may post!"

    "Wes has the ability to convey sharp intelligence, sly humor, dark emotion, and immense tenderness -- very often, in the same photograph. Add to that his whip-smart commentary, and you're in for a real treat.

    His images are full-on creative, and never fail to make me think / laugh / ponder. And he understands that the phrase "normal chaos" is not an oxymoron for those who spend their days with small children."

    "From his happiness-inducing Holga shots to his terrific TTVs,
    From his incredible intimate (and whoa... I do mean intimate) photos to his perfect portraits & captivating captures of everyday life...
    Wes's photos charm & inspire me like few others do.

    Wes is the coolest. Hands down.
    And if you say anything different, I challenge you to a duel."
