Specto-Situationist flows past Portlandia

October 16, 2015

the day will come
when we no longer think
of hanford as the most insanely polluted place within the Homeland
and the washington wine will flow
and no one will think
and no one will know

    I like this photograph in particular.

      Yeah it caught my eye one bright morning–daylight/sunlight shining on/through art hit me as i walked by. My old iPhone really makes it easy for me to capture more of what I like (purposeful imperfection!) these days. I pretty much leave all the dslrs and lenses at home as of late….

      Thanks Lola

        Personally, I tend to lean toward the more anti-touchscreen devices side of things, for no good reason in particular, but I am surprised at the level quality at which my phone takes photographs; it’s far better than my camera (though that’s not saying much; my camera’s pretty poor quality in itself).

        In the main mall in Langkawi, Malaysia, there was always this great big banner in one of the main hallways (at least, when I was there, from January to late July of this year) advertising an art show, and the header, in black capital letters, read *BELIEVE*, with the three middle letters (LIE) emboldened and circled in red. I’m not sure if the dual meaning there was intentional or not, but that banner always caught my eye; it made a pretty powerful impression on me, and I find there’s something strangely inspirational about the kind of meaning something so accidental (as it most likely was) can have. This photograph of yours reminded me of it somehow.

          I like the beLIEve advertising. Works for on many campaign levels…

          Yeah, the iPics and dslr world for me anyway, has been a whirlwind of change. We just moved from film to digital in 2005, cameras were slow and computers were too small and slower still. Didn’t take long for all that to explode though. I’m probably 6 years behind in my Pentax gear chasing, which is like 12 years in tech years. That and just being a Pentax shooter usually set me apart among the PJ’s shooting events and such. But I like it here and I do now enjoy the simplicity of an iPhone. Makes it easier for me to “push other buttons” while not missing post-processing at all. Many of the pics here are iPhotos now and are purposely not well focused etc. because, well, I’m a bit difficult : )

          You can check out my website where you might recognize some pics and there are links to many others as well.

          Thanks Lola

            I did take a look at your site; I especially liked the collections ‘Alternate Fort Worden’ and ‘Acoustic Blues Festival’. I quite like your photography; you have a way of capturing small details, which appreciate. Thank you for the link.

    Hey thanks Lola. Just realized my website host changed it’s look, so my site no longer looks like it used too. Time for some website tinkering!
