Huang Ye Wu Qiu Fen*

These are my new shoes. They are bicycle shoes, and while I don't ride a bicycle these shoes make me consider doing so. and I love them. some people call them swiss cheese shoes or clown shoes, but not I. I call them perfect.

*Huang Ye Wu Qiu Feng translates to Yellow Leaves Dance In the Autumn Wind. It is the name of a song by Zhou Xuan.

"Who's going to shoe your pretty little feet?"

This is Jeff Albers.

Recently I got 4 wisdom teeth out, and this beautiful man nursed me back to happiness. So, I thought, I would do an appreciation post. Jeff is one of those individuals whose talents seem to be unnoticed by others. but I tell you now, one day he'll blow the world away (metaphorically)

find him here
or here
or email me for a song he has written and recorded.

"Queen Jane Approximately"

My Grandma tells me that in one of her past lives, she was of royal blood. I think she may be right. Isn't she beautiful?
this is an example of what she does when I take out my camera. not a joke.
but she has so much emotion and I just want to photograph her forever. I wish someone wanted me to photograph them. follow them around and just photograph them all day. but alas, everyone hates it.
Max S. Gerber once said that if you give a subject an animal, they somehow cooperate better.* He was absolutely correct. I mean, look how proud she looks, and she was so happy to have her picture taken, so long as her dog, precious, was in the shot.
"Stop it, Carly!" That what she was about to say.
this is her smoking area.

Well, once again I had the pleasure of photographing my grandma. She really resents me now, whenever I pull out the camera. She keeps telling me she's going to remove me from the will! and I dare her too. I tell her, "I don't need your money, I'm going to make so much off of these portraits of you anyway!" and she laughs.

"Fake Plastic Trees"

Well Christmas is over, so giving people things is out. I love hating designated holidays. Like Karl Pilkington says, "I wouldn't put a date on that pancake day anyway, just av 'em when you want, have it when you want... I don't know why that's got a special day on it, sick-of-it"

Well, karl, you are right. Valentines day is the only day you're supposed to spoil your significant other with gifts? no way. you better be sprinkling it all year long. Valentines day is stupid, and so is every other holiday. Birthday's? don't even get me started! sick of it!

"Man in the Mirror"

Here's something new that i tried. I took half of this image and doubled it so it made an entire image. I think they're kind of fun and also very strange.

The Last Laugh Of The Laughter

We are something of a happy family. To most people, I think they fear they don't exist. But I can assure you, they do. I'm so lucky to be part of one of them.
