Time To Go Back

Time To Go Back, originally uploaded by sMacshot.

All the Polaroids and various developed films from my plastic and cardboard cameras are finally scanned. Updates to my Flickr stream and online shops commence!

This is taken of the staircase in the beach house....sufficiently spooky, I'll say. To this day, it is often that my heart is in my throat going up them at night, or just being upstairs alone...because you don't feel alone.

espai[b] is a gallery of contemporary art in Barcelona which has chosen two of my photos to exhibit in what will now probably be an annual show since the great success of the first one in 2008. The show's title, 100x100Photo, refers to the number of photographers, and the fact that 100 large prints of each of their photographs will be sold at very affordable prices to the public. This is my first international show, and I am very honored and excited!!

The show starts tomorrow, April 16, 2009. As of the writing of this post, the current show on their site is the last 100x100Photo show, and prints are still available from that one. Take a look around, I see so many things I would love if I had more wall space!

As The World Flickrs

This is my illustration-response to a recent conversation with my sarcastic friend who told me I was to consider myself privileged to be in the presence of he and his work, and as such was to thankfully accept the charge of being diligent in the expression of my gratefulness, the agreed upon method being that I shower him with little pink stars and comments touting his genius. A riot he is. And an amazing photographer, writer, and artist.

NYC Coffee Houses

Before Starbucks, I'm not sure many people in the U.S. hung out in coffee houses. I'm not even sure I would call Starbucks a coffee house, but let's be generous and say so. Here in New York City there are so many which have been in business since the early 1900's. Cozy, cramped, and dimly lit, they serve incredible coffee by the cup, (no refills) panini, (before the general masses knew what one was) plates of sliced tomato and fresh mozzarella drizzled with olive oil, (fresh is the key here; no one buys that rubber ball you find in the grocery store!) all alongside wonderful authentic Italian pastry. Caffe Reggio was one of the first places I went to when I moved to Manhattan, and it is still a favorite place to hang out, and every now and then I have a camera along with me to capture what I see while I sit outside or in (as pictured above.)

Oh and side note, none of the above photos are me; that's my sister (except for the buxom girl with the sunglasses, and the red 'blur-girl'.) It's a long tradition to kick off our bi-annually 'Twin Weekends" the first night at Caffe Reggio.
