Double Trouble

Double your pleasure, double your fun!

All I remeber playing on a playground when I was a kid was the
monkey bars, see-saw and swing and the lone metal slide.
Damn, these kids are so lucky these days.

Horse Latitudes

The decks are starving
Time to throw the cargo over
Now down & the high-sailing
Fluttering of smiles on the air
With its cool night time disturbance
Tropic corridor
Tropic Treasure
Horse Latitudes
from the poetry of Jim Morrison
the violent waters of Sabang Beach
Camarines Sur

Blinded by the Lights

One of my earlier Holga shots..

When we build...

"When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for; and let us think, as we lay stone on stone, that a time is to come when those stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, 'See! This our father did for us.'"

--John Ruskin, "The Seven Lamps of Architecture." New York: The Noonday Press, 1961, p. 177

Life is... simple as a fruit on sand. No need to complicate with noisy backgrounds and distracting foregrounds.

Gloomy Oak

These Winter nights against my window-pane
Nature with busy pencil draws designs
Of ferns and blossoms and fine spray of pines,
Oak-leaf and acorn and fantastic vines,
Which she will make when summer comes again--
Quaint arabesques in argent, flat and cold,
Like curious Chinese etchings.

- Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Frost-Work

The First Holgaga Exhibit : One Subject, Just One! Coming Soon!
Start shooting with a single subject on your frame, so minimalist that it hurts. A single element shouting, crying to be noticed, talking to your soul. Find that single subject that tells a million stories. Just one photo each.
