June 3 – 1909

Self 2blog

When I burned Rome
Arm hung lazily over the sofa’s spine
Eyes hung on the ceiling
Like a Pakistani dissident
Milk soured in the cereal bowl
As I traced the constellations in the stucco
Forever a voyeur’s inclination
Crucified to the rabbit ears’ dream…
When I burned Rome
August was the tail of the dragon
The Giver laid beside the Bible
And Favilla pointed up the staircase
It wasn’t the silence of the lift
Nor the paper skin of recorded age
But the smile on her eyeless face
That made the erasure all too real…
When I burned Rome
The window across the room was open
Curtains danced in the urban turbulence
The mouth was open and pregnant with teeth
Rupturing the last tendon of principle
I fell into Favilla’s embrace
And buried a word into her belly
A marionette ashamed of its strings…
When I burned Rome
She licked the sweat from my cheek
Pulling off the thorny crown
While running twenty upon the asphalt
Stricken I carved her an eye
And placed my dictate upon her tongue
Human she hummed once again
To the human that was to grow within
When I burned Rome….

Hiking North Georgia 1

Minnehaha Falls

So school starts again in two weeks and I figured I’d get my North Georgia mountain fix before hitting the books. Left this morning around 10:30 AM and visited three great waterfalls along with their cascades. They were Panther Falls, Minnehaha Falls and Dukes Creek Falls. Tomorrow I will continue my hiking/photography adventure and attempt to slay my White Buffalo. This being High Shoals Creek Falls. For some reason every time I have tried to shoot this series of waterfalls something has gone wrong or has gotten in the way! Not this time. This time I’m packing two cameras, several batteries and cards, and strapping a large machete to my camera bag. This guy will conquer. Here are some images from today’s hikes.

French Quarter

So this is a continuation to my previous post which involved a photowalk in the New Orleans French Quarter a couple weekends ago. More walks to come as well as more photos. Wordness and it feels good to be sharing photos again!

French Quarter

So school has finally let out and I have tons of photos that I have not edited from photowalks in the French Quarter to the many parades we attended during Mardi Gras season. I have a whole summer to shoot and update the blog with lots of new entries. I have lots of plans to walk the local swamps, visit the aging cemeteries and continue in my New Orleans (French Quarter) door Project. Here are just a few I edited over the weekend. Many more to come and thanks for visiting!

Vintage French Quarter

French Quarter

As promised, I returned to the French Quarter to continue my Louisiana Project. Though I didn’t fill a card and probably spent too much time sipping on some dranks, it felt really, really great to walk the streets of New Orleans and take in the beauty and life around me. With the images I captured, I decided to use some actions that I came across to add a vintage look. And I kind of like them! Check em out!

Best of 2012

So the New Year is here and as I have done in years past I have posted a new blog entry full of my favorite shots from 2012. Most are from our local adventures; bar-hops, swamp hikes, French Quarter ¬†treks, etc. What a great year it was! Going thru my images I realize that I have not shot as much as I should’ve this past year and have made a resolution to right this wrong. I swear to the new year that the camera will come out more often and that the miles upon my Honda will increase. I promise not to slip into photo apathy. 2013 will be a year full of colors, black and whites and textures. Word!
