Smiling Faces

There is something about portraiture that I love. My method is a little spontaneous, but for some reason I always enjoy the results. I like to put the camera in the person's face and just snap it. Is that wrong? I love the moment of surprise that is or is not captured. The people that pretend your not there, and the ones that throw on a cheesy one just for you. 

These photos were taken at a the Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco during the last Radiohead's Kid A Undercover event. 

They were taken with a disposable camera i bought at a thrift store in the Mission. I didn't know if the film was damaged or not, but with the camera well equipped with a flash I decided to shoot till the end.

It was fun.

Those purple flowers

I love these plants. 
At this time of the year the 
purple flowers spews out of them as a swirve and curve in a  
Dr. Seus drawing.

Centrifugal Powa'

I don't know how, when, or where I began to become obsessed with the CIRCLE as a geometric object, idea, and way of life.

Maybe it was my day 'trip' watching centrifugal designs beam down from the sun. Spots, lines, and patterns of color.
Maybe it was my investigation into the art of hoop dancing. The power to keep the hoop flowing continuously with the movement of your body.

Sphere Fascination.

Then I remember when I was in High School I doodled on the back of my notebook a drawing that rooted from the center and evolved outward to the edges of the paper. This was not a perfect circle, but definitely a mandala in its formation. I remember being so happy with that drawing, and truly finding a love for creation with a pen in that moment.

These different experiences have moved me to love the circle as not only a form, but an idea. It is ever present in so many natural states. Think of plants that grow as it spawns into something larger. It starts from a small seed. The roots of life. The milky way with it's mystical swirl. The spherical state of the planets.

This shape repeats itself all over the universe. It is one of the most sublime concepts to confer.

It is meditational. Therapeutic. Reassuring. Relatable.

Some things are just too good to forget...

I've always been fascinated with those cars decked out in plastic figurines, puff balls, shiny things, etc... epoxied obviously.

I found one today.
