Portrait of Addiction

There’s not much to say about this photograph. It’s a hard image. It’s about destruction and pain and a craving that tears at your soul.

In The Present

Being in the present. Easy to say, so hard to do.

This Old Man

I’ve recently come back from a 6 day stay in the hospital. Things are fine now but while I was lying in bed, I had a lot of time to consider what it means to grow old. 

We’re all going to die of course.That’s a given. But I don’t think we spend the time we’ve got left with nearly enough recognition of how terribly valuable it is. 

It’s so easy to get involved with day-to-day minutia, that precious time gets squandered without a second thought. 

From here on my goal is to live my life with a renewed dedication to recognizing the beauty that surrounds us and to celebrate it with my photography.

Memories

Huddled together on rotting pages.

Blurry and smelling of decay.

 

Observing A Fellow Street Shooter

You know, the more I do this stuff, the less I’m sure that the ton of very expensive photo gear she’s toting is going to make all that much difference in her final image. I hope it does but I doubt it.

The Problem With Philosophy

The problem with philosophy is that it is someone’s intellectual overlay on what he or she perceives to be “truth” when in fact, truth needs no intellectual interpretation at all.

It just is.

(If this sounds Buddhist, you’re right.)
