You can't do any better than Frank Zappa -



Titties and beer.





 

Playing with effects...

...trying some different filters. I took a picture of an orange on a concrete driveway in the dark... only because the picture I tried to take in the middle of the road didn't... uh.. work out.




First, with a blue filter




Next, with a green filter




Then, with an orange filter




And last, with a red filter




I like the way the changes in the concrete detail are subtle, but the Orange looks like fruit never before seen with each change.


And for comparision sake, the original.

Isn't it awesome how a color filter can make such dramatic results?

...one photo from my own shoot today - some simple edits, nothing too complex. I'll work on other shots and edits another day.

Life less complete...

Paper lies cover tight

Unfolded skin

Taken light

Where gaping wounds cry

Lacking eyes for sight

Crying from their vein

Begging to hear your voice

Speak my name

To see the echoes

Gather in crowds

Inside my brain

Sweating, seething

Crazy or sane


You can feel the past

And recreate it


It’s just never the same


Incomplete and broken

Where you once stood

Your love my only token

Giving rise to this flood

This emotion, hope and love

We give in to sheltered dreams

Happily ever-after scripts

Played out in our own silver screens

Fortune for the few

Fame for even less

More of us live askew

Dreaming of false success


But we all have hope

To make each day new

A chance

A ray of light

That brings our dreams into view


While sins we fail to fear

Consequences?

I’m well aware

Revealed when the voice that said

They are more than just words read

From a book of stories told

Fables falling from the fold

The icy waters that rush over stones

Washing the sins that stain the bones

Left by the choices of days past

In hiding places unable to last


And it was here when the voice

The voice said to me

“These memories you hold

Won’t set you free,

And the bodies in your basement,

You must let them be.

Piles of silver, galleons of gold,

And creature comforts,

Truth be told,

Won’t fill your heart

As you grow old

Your world will grow cold

And then, where will you be?

This life is the one,

The only one you’ll get.

Will you live it in full,

Or die in regret?

If you want to live it

In your own human way

Then lift up your roots

And enjoy every day

Break free from what binds you

And seek distant lands

Never look behind you

At the fallen sands,

Live your life true

And life will reward you!”


Words so irresistible

I had never heard

From voices more tangible

Or the echoes that they stirred

But this stranger’s voice

Deep in the dark of my head

Left me no choice

When I heard the words that it said


I listened deep

And I took it to heart

Not in wake nor in sleep

But where should I start?

To embrace this life

This proposal so sweet

Would end all the strife

And sweep me off my feet

It would close a chapter

Leaving the past behind

And bury another body

In the basement of my mind


What is there to lose?

I pondered over and over again

Life will always change and move

No matter when or where I begin


So it all starts here

With a decision

And worry

And hope

Set the wheels in motion

Something a little more reasonable

Break away the corrosion

And get to something more feasible

Close my eyes and take a step

Feel the oceans hidden depth

Feel the clouds move again

Feel the rain that they send

Feel the Earth move at my feet

Feel the Sun’s eternal heat

Feel the Moon and the gravity

Feel destruction without calamity

Feel what I feel when I feel

And I feel this wound finally heal
