I ws down on Canal street and stopped by my favorite doorway to see what had been added to my oft photographed site-- it has evolved to another state almost completely. the only way I know it was the same place was the figure's right foot still showed. all else has been changed/covered/forced to evolve? Here it is. At the bottom right it says, "Jesus saves"-- and so do photographers.

The most important thing is keeping my patience and recognizing a moment for a moment.

henna tattoo

Recently I was in Morocco. It was my second trip there, and for sure not the last one.
I returned with henna tattoo. It was a traditional ornament, painted on hand.
After that I started to think what the power can a tattoo have if you treat it like a weapon, what outgrow from tradition of tattoo.

Today I've written on my hand Arabic word: al horey'a, it means freedom.
I treat this tattoo like a conversation stimulus .
If someone is curios , he will ask what this inscription means, and this can be a basis to start talking. For most of people, freedom is valuable notion, but freedom write in arabic, on hand of white person, enforces for deepest analysis .

We can observe now that Europe fears Islamic religion and culture, and United States changed the meaning of the real message from Quran. So this tattoo is a manifest against all this disagreement.

And maybe this small action and discussion about all this problems can have a power to change or force someone to think about this notion with reference to Arabic and Islamic culture.

Self-portrait in a Dark Polish bathroom

After two weeks of shooting photographs all day long, I am feeling relatively dexterous in my technique. I liked the absurd notion of shooting in the dark. The mirror-camera positioning was the most challenging part for some reason. Maybe with so many things to confuse me in a new country, this last one took it over the top.

Mixed Media: Digital Photo w/digital lines

On My Mind:
I envy people who get "signs", have intuitive hits and "just know". I most often just struggle. The other day, anxious about missing a Castle Village Garage Sale. I tried to calm myself by saying, whatever I need will be there when I get there (stuff is the staff of my work). Finally, getting out of the house much too late, but at my own chosen speed, I ran into a couple, who had I left a moment earlier, I would never have seen. They told me about a sale I did not know about and that it was the best. Forsaking all others, I ran there immediately. Unfortunately, it was an estate sale. The collection of "things" was eclectic, artistic, sensitive, extensive.
I met John, Julia's son, who told me that his mother had been an artist, writer and journalist_born in Siberia and died too young.
I bought many things, and among them Three very much like what I already have on my shelves. Then, when John, a writer himself, sent me a poem in rhyme about his mother...I finally realized that I too had gotten a "hit". Much of my artwork has accompanying rhyme.
Below is the poem by John and below that "Three" pieces from/and for Julia.

While going through your things I start to wonder
Just what these objects really mean to me
A silver spoon, old postcards, or a compact filled with powder
A message in a bottle that belongs at sea
I think about our tiny stature next to stars but,
They too are born, die, then explode
And still their dead light from a million miles away
Continues to illuminate our world

I marvel looking at these remnants of your life on earth
And in a Chanel compact I can see divinity
I see the cycle of our lives go back in time, from death to birth
And feel infinitesimal become infinity.
