FAIL!

Filed under: Info / Explanation, Photo-less — MacDuff @ 5:07 pm

i left my camera behind

and 5 hours later, i wondered where my camera was, and thought i might be having a very bad day …

..what with having lost my camera … perhaps in a parking lot, perhaps on the road…

then i remembered that i’d forgotten it

and realized i’d forgotten it in a place where it could be retrieved without worry,

and recataloged “lost” as “left behind”

and bumped “fear” to “self-denegration”

i will not be posting a photo today

I shot this and took a bite of cupcake and changed to a fresh battery in my 50D.

The time-lapse made the trails a bit dirtier than I wanted in the above.

I thought the greens were the best to shoot; the human eye is least sensitive to green and I wanted to bring it out.

…mentioning current events

though all i’ll say is i truly fucking love michael jackson

last night i was on my bike, cutting through traffic, and i stopped at a light next to a 1979 gold caddy with two huge black guys in it blasting some mj…i nodded and shot them a fist and they shot right back

it’s about the music

anyway, here’s a picture …

The only hearts in focus are turned away from you.  Must be B.O.

i disrespected an art store – full story below

Filed under: Info / Explanation, NYC, Object, Photograph — MacDuff @ 11:36 am

by taking photos of the pastels and pencils … according to some brunette with nothing better to do than lash out like a cunt

62 3rd Ave, New York, NY‎ – (212) 473-7705 New York Central Art Supply

everyone else in the store was really, really nice, like the korean girl, the foofy-blonde-haired girl, the owner lady, the man at the register…

just saying! i have a blog and i’m capable of being passive aggressive! normally i would just say something cruel in person and you know that!

in other news, the multi-colored-lead pencil i bought is ZANY and UNPREDICTABLE IN PLEASANT WAYS

Admittedly, this drawer was the least fun. The cobalts were great!
