currently sweating in brooklyn. its hot.

i guess its like a tax for living here, dealing with the heat in new york during the summer. dues paid. although the heat underground in the tunnels is unbearable.. hey nyc metro: fans. the sweaty millions thank you.

been shooting a load of film lately.. went to ground zero today with dave and rob.. its really nice to have them in town and things are peachy.

apologies, to anyone who cares, for the sporadic posting.. been carpe diem’ing it lately and have been loving the m6.

monday 7/6/07

no longer sweating. in the middle of posting, the roommate p walked in with a small circus of people.

this post is going to be a beast.

first and foremost.

I NEED TO GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO MY BOY PHILLY DUTCHMASTER AND HIS NEW BLOG.

stop reading. go to his blog, and leave him some love b/c he’s a war photographer trapped in tampla florida. and he’s rad.

speaking of florida, might be working with chris morris on a shoot this upcoming week. life is good.

this is a huge post, and i havent been posting regularly which sucks.. so heres what i have done since we last crossed paths.

    I really enjoyed Phil’s blog, thanks for sharing!
    and that 50/1.2 has a lovely bokeh

    the one of the girl looking through the binoculars with the cigerette was my personal favorite.

    quick hypothetical question: if someone, oh say my father, was going to buy a new mac book pro and was waffling between getting 2 gigs of ram or 4 which would you go for? it’s something like an extra $600 for the bump in ram but my dad wants to use photoshop. will it make that big of a difference?
