It is All Available in a Square

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

Everybody has heard how tightly packed everything is here in Japan.  No room at times to even stretch ones legs.  For the most part this is true, and to show and this image shows it in a visual exploration of urban Japan.  It is all so neatly packed and full of the essentials, stamps, drinks, smokes, a door, and an izakaya (drinking place).

Get Stamps, Chu Hi Can, Pole, Door, Nobori

Nine Years on The Confrontation Continues

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

There has been a distance of nine years since the Twin Towers in New York City came crashing to the ground, splitting the the American soul in two.  I journeyed to New York city in November of 2001 to attend the unveiling of my grandmothers headstone.  With camera in hand, I wandered the street, shooting, taking in the red white and the horror.  I saw the best and the worst of America on the island of Manhattan.

As the distance between the actual event and the memory of the event grow farther apart, how will America and the world remember it?  WIll it be one of hate and fear, or one of tolerance and compassion.  My fellow brothers and sisters of different faiths and cultures think about this day I pray that people choose to see what connects humanity together rather than what separates us.

Take this time to reflect on how we all must fit into this world.

Therefore, In my open letter to the city that calls me one of her own, don’t close your doors and your hearts.

Don't Close, 2001 New York

In a Humid Haze

Monday, June 28th, 2010

The humidity pushed pretty close to 100% today.  The only saving grace was that the actual temperature was not that high, but it did feel like being smacked in the face when I walked out the door.

Everything took on a soft glow today.  I speculate that the water molecules in the air refract more light than on a dry day.  The hues were bright, as perspiration slid down my arm.

Those lost treasures that have been waiting though all weather. Hoping to be picked up and reunited with their owners again.

So stay cool.  Keep the water cool and the beer ice cold as we head into the wet season.
