some random-ness

hey friends.  I went through some old photos today and have decided to post a few.  okay more than a few.  they are random-ish, kinda like me.  meaning, there is no lyrical theme here.  just photos from different times and years.  enjoy.

and then these last few were from todays walkabout…

PHEW….THE END.

It’s been awhile. I think I was lost.

Wow, I haven’t picked up my camera for almost a month I think.  So here I am again.  Life’s been interesting.  challenging.  But I am trudging forward working towards becoming a better person…living a happy life….and doing the things I enjoy most.  Yes…photography being one of them!  I really enjoy looking through my lens and seeing the world in a different light.  or even the process of walking around searching for that moment..that photograph.  In doing so, I am offered a peak into the lives of others .  In the observational form of course….generally from a distance.  I can create stories about who they are and where they come from.  I can envy them, or I can feel sorry for them.  I can smile at strangers, welcoming a hello for that second.  Maybe in doing so, they experienced a brief moment of relief, or sincerity from another human being.  Does this all sound super cheeeezball?  well, in some ways it is cheezy. As if  I am speaking poetically…but in other ways, it’s the truth spoken and the way  I am able to enter the lives of strangers, briefly.

Now onto the photographs….off I went for a short walk just before sunset.  I threw my Lensbaby lens on the camera and took a few photos with the distorted beauty the lensbaby can create.  Enjoy….

till next time…

A Trip To Venice Beach January 16, 2010

I decided it’s time I get out for a couple hours and take some photos.  So I hopped on my low-rider bicycle and headed to Venice Beach. I got a new lensbaby lens and wanted to test it out.  So I took a few with my new lens, and some with my standard.  I had a great time, until I got in a bicycle accident and landed flat on my face.  Ha Ha.  truth.  but I am almost healed up now and ready to hop on my awesome custom bike again soon.  Enjoy the series…
