suggested listening: “Destroy Rock & Roll LP” by Mylo
the hardest part about blogging is thinking of a title, so i’m just going to start referring to song titles. that one is from alice russell‘s latest solo effort produced by the god given talent of tm juke. both on tru thoughts.

if there is a god in the sky, lets hope he is looking after VII photographer Alexandra Boulat who is currently in a coma in Israel, where she has been doing invaluable work documenting the israeli/palestinian conflict for the past 5 years. from what i have heard around the office and through my bosses, she is in stable condition. my immediate reaction was deep concern for alex, but an added dynamic to the situation is tha she will not be able to photograph what is happening right now in palestine with the inner turmoil of hamas and fatah.. she has worked extremely close with both parties, probably closer than any other photojournalist. above all though, i hope and pray for her speedy recovery.. keep her in your thoughts.

a friend from la is here, another is coming in tomorrow night, and i am a happy camper. that is the end of my story thus far.

ps, getting back a roll of provia and a roll of velvia tomorrow afternoon.

here are some photos

field training excercise.. some film stuff from the weekend. SEE THE FULL EDIT HERE.

  8. really enjoyed the military stuff in the gallery – quality work! wide angle has its attraction, but a standard focal length also would fit in there nicely, just for the sake of variation.
