thoughts and stuff

None of the photographs have been digitally manipulated.
Some have been converted to B&W, some have had contrast shifts, dust and scratches stuff etc.
but all images are as they are - on 35mm film or digital.


a spark.......
it says: "you are here because I am there"
I say: "you are there because I am here"
I have not thought of this before
I wait
I do not know how long
I do not know where
It is dark
a spark.......

memoirs
Memoirs of a Survivor, pitch dark
in another side of silence 1 shake him 'till he rattles once is not enough the end of it additional dialogue take away one, by the sword we planned it that way seasonal rights, an end an end the end of the matter blaze of riot yes from no mans land the savage is loose made from this earth the abominable man - the man who broke things the child within the offering assault with intent. 2 A no doubt mad idea naked came the stranger opening blind eyes the tangled tongue crying in the wilderness the strangers are all gone the stain on the snow - color purple aftershock side effects reverie what to do wisdom shall enter I'll take the back road behind the trail a last resort the textured path. 3 dual allegiance you can never go one last chance journey to a safe place - bold journey when the earth lies sleeping planet of the blind - look back in anger walking on the wings of the wind a trip into the blue the forest and the sea and the river a world quite round - the good earth the nearest fire days weeks I can't go on I'll go on future without future the first deadly sin mind power second nature one miracle at a time life if life is an informed decision talk back to turn the tide, a time to remember the time of your life tick...tick...tick... a chance child that was then this is now

I saw an exhibition of German Expressionist wood-cut posters at LACMA a few years ago, and tried to do homage. The words are deliberately difficult to read! (the printed word as image and meaning 'n stuff).
I used to like to take photos of the old CRT TV...
twiddling knobs. I believe the ghosts of knobs still linger in the remote.
Without words it's just a picture of a TV screen.
Letters make us look deeper -
to find words and meaning.
Everything in our man-made world is designed.
We can't dig a hole without designing it.
The last tree is somewhere on the road to Las Vegas -
if you want to go look for it.
