//project phone photography

26 Mar

i took a photo the other day, on my iphone, and was inspired to take interesting photos using only that. here she is. part of the effect was the tinting on my car window (hands free?). an unforeseen consequence but wonderful. 

so here i am, on my trip and going to implement project phone photography. a perfect opportunity for success or devastating failure. no slr? we’ll see.

nashville day 1:

(jet lag for sure. but it is so great to see some of the most wonderful hosts the world has ever known. and be with friends with the city’s offerings. and we may have had breakfast with mat kearny. well, near him. the photos will show my highlights of the day, marché: where i found my spinach crèpe with potatoes, bacon and a parmesan sauce, rachel’s asparagus, egg bruschetta, the holland house: which was described to me as cocktails at anthropologie and it definitely fit the bill. i did not order a drink seeing as i’ve been beverage-sugar-ed out with previous giftings from our hosts but had a tomato basil bisque, and we shared deep-fried cheesecake.) i am going running in the morning!

//dear narcolepsy, i’m ready.

14 Mar

let’s just say there’s something i am supposed to be doing, and something i want to be doing. there is this paper i have due, i am trying to work on it, but it sits in front of me with very little progress. and normally, as it comes down to the wire, i get things done. especially papers. good papers. but i’ve had a rough day. any day beginning with 3 hours (no exaggeration) of tech support is nothing short of a hurdle. and that was just the beginning.

//one man’s trash, is still his.

30 Jan

For three years acclaimed artist Vik Muniz journeys to his native Brazil and the world’s largest garbage dump, Jardim Gramacho, outlying Rio de Janeiro. He takes pictures of an eclectic band of “catadores”—self-designated pickers of recyclable materials. His initial intent was to “paint” the catadores with garbage. Instead, his collaboration with these inspiring characters as they recreate photographic images of themselves out of garbage reveals both the dignity and despair of the catadores as they begin to re-imagine their lives.

I cannot wait to watch this documentary: Waste Land
