Right Handed

So I am predominantly right-handed, but do a lot of things left-handed as well. And am very right-brained as well – anyone who knows me or has read through some of this blog can figure out the right-brained bit. Right brained individuals are said to be more creative, which I can attest to, but can also be a way for ADHD to manifest in an individual. Thats sort of me in a nut shell, lots of great ideas and creative ability, but lose focus pretty fast on most things. My brain chemistry is a little different from most because of this whole right-handed/left-handed bit as well. There is a clinical name for how my mind is set up, but of course I can not remember what it is. The only reason that I even know about it all is that a good friend of mine, who is set up with the same right/left weirdo anomaly that I have, was tested for some reason and told me all about it. Funny too because we are both very alike in many, many ways.

Anyway, I am right-handed but golf, bat, shoot (in hockey), and do most things like this left-handed. That is the whole thing of it. But here are a few shots that I have taken lately to illustrate different points. The interpretation is always up to the viewer, although some may strongly disagree, but this is the reality…we all walk around with our own ideas, and ways in which to see the world. My right hand…

Oh yea, the tattoo on my thumb was done in NYC in 2003 as a momento of the whole experience. I knew it wouldnt stay, stay on my thumb; and have had it gone over probably 4-5 times since. It is there but is fading for sure, as all tattoos do over time.

The larger tattoo over my wrist is three parts. The top 1/2 says “Nowhere to go” Meaning this moment is all we have so we may as well just relax into it, amoung many other meanings which I will not write about now. This is a Zen ideal. Along the side (right side of wrist) is a small lotus. If you dont get the lotus symbolism look it up. “At home in the muddy water” is a good analogy for life and the peaceful warrior. and on the bottom of my wrist is the Buddha’s eyes in a meditative like state. Blue highlights all over the entire piece. Anyway…

Abstract Painting with Light

Here are a few shots I took with my brother-in-law in the last while. I decided to throw up a few on flickr today so also thought I would throw up a few here as well. Check it out on flickr if you want to see the large versions. A lot of detail in some of them! Was a lot of fun and am looking forward to doing some more in the future with my little lights that I picked up…

Enjoy…

Self Portrait Project

Here it is….

Take a self-portrait and post 3 things about yourself: I already posted this to my flickr site so thought I would set it up here as well.

1.) I took a break from report writing to do all this. Something I probably should have had done 3 weeks ago – give or take.

2) I am enthralled with the idea of the self-portrait as a way to create a new awareness of the individual and to capture a diary of sorts of an individual. Rembrandt, Van Gogh, De Kalo (Frida), are 3 artists who did this throughout their lives and captured amazing pieces of themselves while doing each and every one. They were not photographers, but painters, and amazing ones at that. I can say that as a photographer, it has really taken me a purchase of a compact digital – where I can look at the frame of the shot – to get any self portrait at all. But did thoroughly enjoy my drawing session, doing a self-portrait with a large mirror in front of me as it was done by the 3 artists mentioned above…

3) I went off way too much on #2 to include a #3….

Visit Flickr to check out the photo, just at the top there, ya at the right….There you go.

G11 Shots

It hath been a fort night – or a few fort nights (around 7 months or so) – that I hath rambled in technologicia. So I am blogging again, whatever that means or symbolizes in this saga that is 1/2 public, 1/2 really unknown world that is cyber space or “technologicia.” Enough on that lets get to the shots….why we are all truly here to view this site at all, or at least it would seem it to myself for this entry.

These are just a couple shots from the G11 that I picked up just after Christmas. Nice that I am getting around to editing some of them now, I know, I know…but what can you do? Here they are….

Please check these out in flickr to see them a little larger…just up on the top right of the screen, yup, just up there…

More Cemetary Shots

Uneven Ground

Elevated Walkway

Thought that I would post a few shots from another cemetary shoot last week, or the week prior – I cant get my weeks straight. I love the marble in the one area I shot, so many reflections. Many more to come…maybe not just in the Cemetary though, right?

Tunnel Vision

Be a Lamp unto Yourself

This last one is an HDR. I have become addicted to HDR and the colors or effect that you can get with the software. I find that my shooting is maybe suffering a little though cause I just want to do everything with HDR. So I vow to slow down, although I already have…Hope you enjoy…
