Dad Under a Pier

00252.jpg
View in Photoblog

Some photographs only improve with time.

Recently my father was visiting a friend of the family and she gave him a number of photos of my father, some almost 40 years old. This photo was part of a series of photographs taken under a pier. I am going to guess that this photo is circa 1977. My father was around 30 years old.

I believe this photo was taken in Los Angeles, but I cannot be sure. I like my dad's animated expression, as if he was caught mid sentence. I like his larger than life hair, obnoxiously open shirt, and rolled up shirt-sleeves. Most of all, I like that I would have scoffed at this photo as a teenager. Now I just find it cool.

Cigarettes, Evan, and Coffee in Logroño

View in Photoblog

While eating at La Chatilla restaurant on Calle de San Augustín in Logroño my brother Evan and I were playing with the panoramic stitching mode of his new camera. We decided to make triptics. As I was looking at them tonight I decided that they would best go together as a triptic themselves.

If you are ever in Logroño I highly recommend eating at La Chatilla. They have the best carpaccio I've ever eaten. First they take beef tenderloin, pound it flat it then and roll it with foie. Next, they slice it thin as paper. Last they artfully arrange it on a platter and drizzle it with cold pressed olive oil and balsamico. If it is possible for carpaccio to melt in your mouth, this carpaccio one does.

You might need a cigarette afterwards.

This is Christmas in the North Woods of Wisconsin. This year My friend Jesse was kind enough to invite me to spend Christmas with his family in Eagle River, Wisconsin. Entertainment included: snowshoeing, pinochle, and shooting guns at wooden targets from the deck of the house.

This is Jesse's father, Bob, one of the kindest human beings alive.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Sagrada Família Diptic

The Sagrada Familia is beyond description. It feels as grand as the Grand Canyon and just as difficult to capture beyond mere impression onto film. I was really taken by the cubist sculptures which is a style so rarely used for Christian artwork.

It is exciting for me to consider that the building might be completed in my lifetime.

There was a beautiful grand installation of fire in Marie outside of the Louvre for Nuit Blanche in Paris this year. The installation consisted of chimneys creating columns of fire, charcoal pyres, iron sculpture holding terracotta pots burning kerosene, and a large handing chandelier of fire.

I brought the Polaroid 101, which was a hit amongst the Parisians, and tried to capture some of the flames on film.

When I visited Paris my friend Mika took my out to take photographs in the morning. When we passed Ladurée and she found out that I hadn't tried one of their Macaron we had to come in out of the cold and take some with us to go.

Here I am at odds with trying to describe to Mika's mother exactly how good the caramel Macaron is. They truly are great!
