To all the peoples of the internet (and the world). I am starting a new blog that will focus solely on photography, words, and the ideas explored through them. The reasons for this new endeavor are many. For one, my interest in photography and language as mediums of investigation continues to grow by leaps and bounds. Second, I realize now that I don’t put out art at a fast enough rate to have consistent posts here in this space. Third, that duotone blog theme is just so damn hard to resist! I hope you will join me at my new space and be as kind (or kinder) to me there as you have been here.
There is a song, a piece of music that won’t leave my ears. Every time I hear it the world slows down and silence gains new meaning. This music creates distance and yet lures you in ever so slowly. The composer is Yoko Kanno and the piece is titled Space Lion. As the song unravels it accomplishes what every gentle piano work ever tried to do but in a novel way. This song, which starts above the clouds and spans an impressive lineage of music, becomes the historical trace. It is old and new at the same time, its influences are obvious yet its origins elusive. Give it a spin.
Life is always changing, sometimes these changes are small, habitual, or pre-planned. Some changes are unavoidable like the turn over of seasons or transition between quarters. Other changes are hard, but necessary, a change that saves you from something or somehow makes you better. Travel is like constant change, you’re never in the same spot twice.
Just a note, I don’t normally drive, which is why I can take pictures from inside a moving vehicle.

Apparently my camera has a really cool, full manual white balance feature that I just discovered today. The results are below. The good thing about Seattle is that the weather is always good for photographing in blue. Rain, rain, rain…and its good to be inside.
