    When in doubt, take pictures of the crap in your apartment.

    I can't pretend to be a photographer by any means but I happened to be in an old album tonight and came across these three from my time driving my friends' band all over europe a few years ago. I'm sure there were more in the series.

    Or have a riot (not strictly this autumn, but a lot of protests are kicking off a the moment).

    @256: Aww poor birdie.

    And these photos are totally in the guilty pleasure camp, since they're of my dear cat Watson. (But I turned them into black and white which makes them more artsy fartsy.)

    @ALE, holy crap if that tag is in New York City then it is about 20 years old! I thought that all the stay high 149's were gone. You have found the Coelacanth of grafitti.

    Some of you may remember my asking about getting a camera in the ask thread a little while back. Well, long story short, I got a Nikon D40 and went down to Kensington about a month ago to take some photos for an assignment. And just now I've uploaded them (or rather, the ten of three hundred that formed my photo-essay) for everyone to see what a terrible amateur I am. Here's that.

    @ALE, closer to thirty years now that I do the maths. Figures they're in the Bronx. His bio.

    Yo @DJ, I remember contributing to that thread. Welcome to the party here, looking forward to seeing your stuff in these pages.

    Ok - last night I painted a blacklight skeleton on my burlesque friend for an 11-11-11 party performance. It went like this:

    walking the floor
    dancers
    legbone
    paint check
    blacklight
    scapulae
    cape
    humerus ulna radius

    The skeleton looked great in motion, though it was sort of crudely painted. A lot of the painting was done without a blacklight to check the shapes, and the brushes were a bit thick. If we do this again, I'll try stenciling the pieces and spraying the paint on.

    The crowd loved her, though, and the blacklight reveal got some screams of joy, so it all worked out.

    Yeah, blacklight skeleton, that's what did it for me too.

    @nigredo - admittedly there were other aspects of this performance that were compelling.

    @DJ - I'm in the same boat as you, got a D40 a couple of months back...

    And so, these. This lovely little jazz trio ended their recording week with a show at the studio.

    Looking through this rich Photography Thread (FALL 2011) and at dorkmuffin's impressiv picture, I'm starting to wonder if photography is more like a working discipline - which grows through time, experiences and mastering all the technical aspects - or more like a zen discipline - that would grow through making the technical aspects as abstract/inconscious as possible ?

    Probably both or depending on something and anything...

    Anyway, here some new samples from my - very young and still daily - photo-blog Mondo Corretto ... starting weird.

    Mondo

    Alchemistry [ 3 / 3 ]

    Wasn't supposed to be introspective at all, but there is this gap between the shooting and the editing (even if there is no photoshop) and it turns out otherwisely.

    Both.
