Categorized: Events & Gigs – Where is the Customer Support?

As I announced yesterday, I entered a photo contest being put on by DPS and hosted by Photrade.  Late last night, my mother tried to put in a vote for my image, but instead ended up on the Photrade home page.  She IMed me asking how she could vote for my image.  I was a […]

Ron – BW$P

Meet Ron. After lunch, I was in a bit of a rush to get back to the office for a meeting, but I came across Ron asking for change in front of Taco Bell at the corner of California and Drumm.  I explained my project to him and he asked if I would give him […]

Not Today [Photo]

Description: I am finally processing more of the pictures I took from my trip to Bolivia and Peru in the summer of 2007.  I cropped down the original to get the perspective I desired on this one. This man was sitting in the small village we visited on Taquile Island.  He was minding his own […]

Going Up [Photo]

Description: This shot was a bit hard to capture as there were constantly people going up and down the escalator here.  I specifically wanted one person in the image and did not have all day to stick around.  I was hoping to capture a little more blur in the passerby, but I did not have […]

Every portrait I take will be converted and processed in black and white. This project is a spin off of Thomas Hawk’s $2 Portrait Project. Meet […]

FriendFeed Goes on Steroids (aka Real-Time)

The Blogosphere is Mini-Hollywood…NOT!

I’ve seen a couple post recently on Louis Gray’s blog referring to the blogosphere as mini-Hollywood (both written by contributing authors) or, as in the most recent post, “Valleywood.” Now seriously, does anyone really care? Is anyone paying attention? I’m going to have to say no, except for those inside the blogosphere. The majority of […]

Like A Breeze [Photo]

Description: As a little kid, I was always fascinated by pinwheels.  When I see one or play with one these days, I can’t help myself but smile and remember my childhood and remember how simple life used to be. On a photographic note, I’ve always been obsessed with the Golden Gate Bridge (who isn’t).  It’s […]
