Here’s something I found while digging through my vast archives of unedited… stuff. I took this photo about a bajillion years ago in the Fontbonne University sculpture studio. I’m not sure if this lady is still hanging around there, but judging from the amount of random junk she was stored behind it seems very possible. Chillaxin. Mannequin style.

Wow. Lot’s of pollen around here at this time of year. And most of that’s stuck in nose. Good times. Kleenex, anyone?
*This just in* Mr. Paul Johnson has kindly featured my Houdini piece on his hilarious super-blog, The Good Greatsby. If you’ve not yet visited Mr. J, please head on over and check out his antics… you’ll thank me for it!

Did I mention I just spent 2 weeks building a 35mm pinhole camera for Worldwide Pinhole Day 2011? Did I mention Worldwide Pinhole Day 2011 takes took place on April 24 2011? *sigh* Oh well, let’s pretend I intended to hit this party ‘fashionably late’. Salsa, anyone?
George: “Why don’t they have any salsa on the table?”
Jerry: “What do you need salsa for?”
George: “Salsa is now the number one condiment in America.”
Jerry: “Do you know why? Because people like to say salsaaaaa.”

Hey, hey, it must be random rooftop day! Aren’t billboard support structures great? Oh, and rooftop water towers, too. There’s something very… ‘built’, and imposing about them. Or maybe it’s just that they remind me of Empire Records. Which has an excellent soundtrack. And isn’t too shabby a movie, either.
Warren: “Who glued these quarters down?”
A.J.: “I did.”
Warren: “What the h*** for, man?!”
A.J.: “I don’t feel the need to explain my art to you, Warren.”

Is anybody out there?! I hope so… the villagers might have revolted yesterday… so, today I have a calm, lightly toned, black and white image to share. Although the random craziness of this blog is what makes it fun-ish (I think). It’s like Forrest Gump. Or his proverbial box of chocolates, anyway.
I’m not sure what to title this photo… I keep going back and forth. It was called ‘port’ for a while. Then ‘cantilever’. Then ‘cantilevered’. Not sure I’m cool with those, though. Any suggestions? Besides “STOP FORREST, STOP”, that is?!

It’s been a while since my last Holga post, so I decided to rock another.
AND, dear readers, it’s time for an experiment… let’s see what happens to my stats if when I throw a random ‘twilight’ tag into this post. I mean, technically, it was ‘twilighty’ when I took this photo; I just didn’t happen to be attacked by any tween-aged vampires. I don’t think. Although… I’m fairly certain I used to have a reflection…
I’ll have other pinhole photographs to share in the future… I’m building a new 35mm pinhole camera as I type. Well, not at exactly the same time; I’m not much of a multi-tasker. Anyway, this one’s made-o genuine wood, which should hold up better than its cardboard predecessors. AND it should be completed in time for worldwide pinhole day (April 24)! Huzzah!
How many cameras would a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck cameras?
