if only we knew more from the start : san francisco bay (2009)
as a photographer, i can tell you, one of the best things about a photo is what one can remember about the exact moment.
for the viewer, it is only the content measure of time.
for the photographer, it was a world surrounded by meaning, space and time.
i have a strong memory system.
i can remember waking up and what took place on the morning if i see a photograph.
it's like a climber who finds a handhold which requires three points.
we make our world up from what we see.
and more so, as photographers, if we try to stuff this invisible power into our shots, it actually works.
all the hopes and all the dreams, which, like all brief life, also die...
what more shall we say of our past?
always and forever.
because it's so much fun to think of you -- and you're white! lebanese!
not my favorite for many reasons now...
and the way you chose to fail on purpose.
it's like an iPhone timer going off
and an insane person deciding to pretend'
they heard richard simmon's voice
encouraging them to be better.
there's a reason for haterz//
you ain't shit unless you h8
and i get that it isn't cool to say that,
but fk your pony boy who chooses being cool
real. you gave up in the middle of the test.
you went from best
like mankind's judgement of the beast.
it ain't golden unless the watchmaker is crosshatching time
with profits in his pockets
and i've always been an artist
with an interest in the sidestepping of the rhyme.
with a purpose,
not a mission
on a porpoise.
it's your right.
but some of us were light scabbards from the start and
our aim was true.
we didn't need your sentiment to
warm our hearts.
we didn't need your bentwardness
to bend our sorrow's part.
you gave grift
instead of any promise of tomorrow.
i awoke this morning knowing i would be forever changed.
i was visiting "asia".
the myth of china would be over.
i would be immersed in the trade and cover, the people and their place. no longer would it be hidden in the proverb or the phrase.
i would see chinese and thai and korean.
their world would be invaded by me.
