Carnie Rides.

The Carnival came to town.
I watched fireworks, and took pictures of wonderfully mad carnie-folk.
Actually I found myself strangely self conscious about taking pictures of the Carnie-folk. I felt as if I was taking a picture of an animal at the zoo,
or a Freak at the circus.
I spotted an obvious Carnie. Wheel-chair bound and scraggly. Neon glowsticks dangling from his neck . I found myself walking straight up to him with a smile on my face, of which he clearly had no intention on returning.
I grew wide eyed with expectation, clenching my camera. Then as quickly as I had made a decision to take his picture, I changed my mind...and kept walking past the man's menacing gaze.

I wonder how he is doing. Maybe somewhere far away in these lands, he is creeping someone else out with his menacing eyes.

Beautiful Women: An Interpretation of Beauty.

This Gallery was pretty relaxed. I don't often go to Art shows..
I don't really know why..I certainly should, right?
Maybe even enter some photos?
Just for shits n' giggles.
Lau is extremely talented and is a dear friend of mine. You should most definitely check out her website.

Words of Light.

This is actually my first attempt at light writing.
I've been a graffiti lover and writer for a long time now.
I keep it strictly on paper and have never felt the need to vandalize anyone's perfectly good property. I prefer graffiti and artwork to be in areas in need of beautification. Graffiti should be about the beauty of the art, and not the amount of grief and damage you've caused a store owner or landlord.

This form of "Painting" is a very clean, safe, and legal way to paint in any place...(just about)
And way too much fun.
My study of light will enter a new age.
The union of photography and graffiti.

Stand up for Beibei!

This cat is so cute that it makes me want to punch it in the face.
that is all.


Two months later...

Tent, originally uploaded by TokyoTImeFlickr.

I haven't visited here in a long time....

Alot of things have happened in the last two months.
But this blog is in fact a photography blog. I least at its heart.
So I'm going to be true to the heart, and just post a picture.

This one is from inside a wedding party tent found at NYBG(New York Botanical Garden).
It seemed the party was done, and everything was cleaned up and put away.
This tent was VERY big and fancy, and free for me to roam around in.
I took quick shots as my girlfriend twirled around in joy under the enormous white tent.
Her red braids playing a game of tag in constant circles around her head.

About Me

My photo
In search of myself, I flew across the country from New Jersey to Los Angeles. The universe brought me to the gates of an Ashram on top of a mountain. The mother center of Self Realization Fellowship in Mount Washington, CA. One week later I am employed as a tree pruner and gardener at the mother center. The path to finding oneself is a peculiar one. This is a record of my spiritual observations through nature and life while employed as an Ashram Gardener.
