Sunday morning photos...

So the decision was made to get up and go try to get some photos this morning.

Honestly, the main impulse for doing this was because I had a big itch to make some sorta new images. More honestly, every time I sat down to try to draw, my left hand put on a helmet, got on the short bus, and took off for parts unknown.

Woke up about 6:15. Clothes and gear were laid out ready to go. But wait...thunder? Shit. It was barely sprinkling, I knew I'd be pissed if I didn't go. So I did. I was out for less than an hour. The rain just kept growing. 2 iPhone shots, thru Hipstamatic using the Ruddy "lens"and Love 81 "film" from their Jamaica Hipstapak, and 2 DSLR shots, tweaked in Lightroom and Alien Skin Exposure 7.

Took a total of 32 shots. 4 keepers, and maybe a couple "maybes" on the vine.

I'm happy with that.

Here they are...

There's something about...

First of all, let me preface this post by saying I've been trying EXTREMELY hard to not post anything negative or mean. I don't necessarily feel like I'm ever either (A wry observationist maybe? Cynical at worst)...but I do feel like there's enough negativity in the world, that I don't need to add to it.

That being said...

There's something about your average middle class American wearing a Bluetooth smartphone headset, looking like an air traffic controller, and being completely serious about it...that cracks me the hell up. Dude, or ma'am...I'm pretty sure you're not actually trying to thwart the imminent collision of inbound jumbo jets into LAX. I'd even go so far as to say your recap of Skipper's t-ball game to gramma is not a matter of National Security.

So in short...lighten the hell up.

Yes, you're wearing a dork crown.

No, you're really not that important.

Ok, now I'll lighten up...maybe you're just trying to be safe while driving, hands on the wheel, eyes on the road...that sorta thing. Cool. Thank you.

But seriously...your air of regality is off-putting at best, and trust me...I'm not itching to bond with the masses either, but c'mon, there's no need to wear the "Hey! I'm an asshole" banner. Blend in...join the flock...drink the kool-aid....let's all hold hands and sing "Kumbaya"'ll be awesome, I'll make S'mores.

Ok...rant over. Now back to your regularly scheduled bits and pieces...

Have Fun!
