after a two day extension.. my san francisco retreat has come to an imminent close. its been really refreshing to come up here.. enjoy the sf family and relax. shot quite a lot of film, and there are some party photos/stories that will be shared as soon as i dump the card. its freshman orientation week at my old USF and the perverbeal “breaking in” has begun. a group of about 20 hand selected freshman were invited to my friends loft.. the booze dissapeared in minutes.. and consciences (word?) were put on the back burner.


i can hear screaming outside.. i think part two is about to begin.. i’ll be finishing this one tomorrow morning!

edit- the morning after …

and heres a brief summary in photos:








k so that was absolutely rediculous. again. i believe the term is.. “turning out”


its not that i feel responsible for under age drinking.. i just supplied the booze ! eek.
at this time i’d like to point everyones attention over to the talented, charming, and overly international Piotr Jakubowski.. after about a week of brainstorming.. he came up with a name for his blog.. i introduce everyone to .. that would be .72 dot wordpress dot com … he’s got some images up from our day out in LA that came out really well.


i bumped into a friend of mine in SF who was at the same university as Piotr in Japan.. apparently you pronounce his name P-Ot.. never knew. i called him peter.


the summer is coming to a very very immediate close.. i return to boston on thursday.. my schedule is going to be absolutely rediculous and i dont know how i’ll be able to finish with a reasonable GPA.. but we’ll see what happens. my primary photo course, advanced pj, requires a photo essay a week.. that on top of 2-3 assignments for the paper.. and being at the paper almost every night of the week 5p – 1/2a.. not anticipating much sleep. if anyone is from boston that reads this.. lets get coffee 😉
right now i’m listening to Goodie Mobb’s “Soul Food” … for those who thought C-Lo was a genius for his work on the summer’s most played out gem “Crazy” .. check out where he’s really from.. the production is groovy.. the rhyming is durty durty south.. that realness.


i’ve been really curious about this little monster: The Ricoh GRD … 28mm/2.4 fixed lens.. 8mp point and shoot? fully manual controls? can we say street shooting galore? i probably wont end up getting one because ive promised myself the next cam is a mamiya 6 or a hasselblad.. but yeah.. that thing looks like alot of fun.


the drive back down the 5 fwy is always a sobering experience.. this time i didnt have anyone with me.. as illustrated:sf3.jpg


..but the sunsets are always excellent and i had more than enough memories from the week up in san francisco to occupy my mindspace for 270 miles.


i’ll be posting a summer-in-review something-or-other soon.. lots of material


my best friend julius just got a leica. check him out @ .. and no, i’m not kidding about the url. some people just have a lil more thug in em than the rest of us.


thanks for reading.

    Goodie Mobb! Damn groovy shizzle.

    A photo essay a week sounds freaking challenging man, how many images does it need to be?

  3. Soul Food is such a classic. It’s nice to hear the real south again after having to put up with all these years of southern crunk or whatever the fuck it is.

    Time to take a trip back to ’95..
