Who's Watching Who?

For some time now the aim has been to capture images while like a trap door spider I just setup my gear and wait... Got to pick a good spot first... it will become the backdrop with some body walking, talking, surfing, or whatever people these days do to fill in the blanks of a life told lived well! Just want to wait for something wonderful to happen...

This ant that shot!! This is an example from the other side of the that lofty idea of premeditating the perfect moment. This is just wanting to capture the big sleepy eye and this BMX rider unaware of his surroundings plowing right into my shot! Love dem kids! Looking back at what I had done it struck me as funny that I was watching the eye, the eye was watching the kid and the kid wasn't watching anything that he should have but was watching his phone! So much of a happy life is lived filled with beautiful mistakes!

A Walk to the Other Side

Our last Regional Convention this past season was truly enjoyable and memorable. I made it a point to do things different than usual. One thing was to follow the large crowd of brothers as they where all walking around to other side of the pond, this is seen every time in Long Beach but never did I have the nerve to see where they all go. I left them at the hotel ( now I know for why they walk! ) and continued on I did to see what I would see and low and behold... the other side of the convention facility! Cool right!!

The Golden Hour

Working under the bridge with my Brothers & Sisters watching the world passing by... It is such a beautiful thing watching as the Sunlight leaves our world in the evening, photographers call this the Golden Hour, both dusk and dawn. The light that this place gets during this time is wonderful...

Capturing The Light


Not the best photo by any means but for the light rays... they were captured by chance and it is wonderful to me. No Photoshop trickery but for the B&W treatment. City Hall in downtown Los Angeles.

My LA

Was out and about one Friday afternoon on the Santa Monica train when a vato mistook me for one from around the way. Wanted to know for all to hear how to get deep into the central part of LA, "...essay." Playing it cool like you know we do, I spit it back at em, “it'll be cool as long as you do too, even coming from deep in East LA in that Whittier Way...essay.” It was wild looking into faces that didn't quite know how to take our exchange... but no one to me felt afraid.

Los Angele is in the mist of a change like I can't recall living anywhere else. And the night life is just out of this world becoming a metropolitan city center to rival all the big players in this country of ours. I so love walking around and seeing a mix of people living their lives with so little fear in this fearful world we all live in today!
