Webster Hall

[Read as Broken Sentences]
This past Friday night was very random.....
Went to fellow students house...
Hoped to have a swell time there...
Instead was invited to go see The Cool Kids at Webster Hall...
Walked to Webster Hall in the rain...
Only around the corner from where I was previously located...
Skipped the ENTIRE line...
Pissed off a few people...
Went inside...
Stood around for a while...
Then couldn't take the standing anymore...
The music was calling my body...
Explored all 3 levels...
Around 1:35 finally saw The Cool Kids

I really wished I had my better camera, but didn't intend on needing it that night. I still was able to get some pretty good shoots :)

As I have mention before, most of my work these days has to be done in film for class. These are a few prints I constructed myself, I am very happy about having the chance to learn and experience this process first hand. Now by prints, I don't mean uploading to the computer and pressing a simple button for a sheet of balnk paper to take a trip through the printer and your picture come out as a result. No no no, I mean the long agonizing time spent in the darkroom, going through 6 and 7 pieces of paper for one picture just to get to that perfect print...I mean having to go through that long process of developing the print yourself, you know, the developer, stop bath, fix, and since I've recently turned over to a new leaf, perawash for fiber paper. This long exhausting process might call for a vase amount of patience and time, but it all surely pays off when that perfect print is the result.
Here are a few I'm pretty proud of:

My Joy.
If you know me, you know I LOVE Shwayze!
After I did a collage for

Shwayze is just amazing, if you don't listen to him, get your life together and do so. I just can not wait until I see him and LMFAO December 4, 2009! It going to be amazing, just like always. Shwayze and Cisco definitely know how to deliver a GREAT performance, it never gets old seeing them. Go get Let It Beat, if you don't have it already!


This weeks assignment for my class is APPLES lol. I had had fun with this photo shoot. Of course most of it is done in film, but I like to also just take a few shots in digital.

Battery Park

So, last weeks assignment for my Photo Workshop Class was to take pictures of what ever I please :)! Great right, not so much, I had no idea what to do. However, I asked some locals and they steered me down the right path. I ended up taking a long peaceful trip down to Battery Park. Not to mention, it was a be-a-utiful day in the city.

Now in this class, we are going back to the basics which means FILM FILM FILM! But of course my digital camera had to come along for the ride lol. So, I spent all this time roaming around, deeply in thought about each frame, and what do u know my second roll of film did not get put in properly. And how about that, it was my favor roll too. So those pictures I just couldn't wait to see developed, will never be.

But hey, I didn't sit and cry about it, the next day I just went back. It was raining this day however. But I love the rain, so it didn't bother me. I went to the same place, retraced my step, reshot the pictures I could. But there were a few that just got away. The previous day when I got to the top of this abstract sculpture in Battery Park, there were a group a young people. Just relaxing, taking a breathe, breathing in "funny cigarettes" , very welcoming group of people. When I asked to shoot them they were extremely nice about it, very hard to come by these days in street photography. I really regret not shooting any in digital. They all wore black,there will be one shot I will never forget. They were in their natural positions, passing their choice of smoke and this girl with breathe-taking piercing eyes took a quick look at the camera. BOY oh BOY! Would that have been a gorgeous black and white print, all that black with the juxtaposition of her light eyes. May that frame never be forgotten lol :)

On the second day, my friend Matt and I stubbled upon the cutest thing, these toddlers and their garden. Their parents were kind enough to let us shoot them. Then we moseyed along to some kids playing hand ball. I got a nice portrait of one of them.

SO here go photo from both days:

And of course I love my close ups :
