ride out

biked out almost to the lake, smashed my mamiya while never taking it out of the smashing bag, took a few pics. I'm always complaining about not having something to toil in so I'm trying to do a raleigh grid project, whereby I photography Raleigh 1 random square mile at a time. First square mile has been a hoot. If I do one square a month on the map I'm using it'll take 33.3333 years. Ready to toil baby.

edit correction it's 33.25 years. However a third of a century is more toil worthy.


became a uge fan of Peru when we were there, forever. Such a killer flag and people. The Spanish language is the best. Latin America forever


peru was wild very foggy lots of dust a few street dogs empanadas and not enough ceviche broken spanish good coffee lots of smiling and nodding the world cup and the biggest fing rat I ever saw crawling in the gutter



Our table is pretty beat and I kind of love how beat it is. No worries man! Bang away you know!? Boy proceeds to bang on the table STOP THAT

from my invoice to get my mamiya fixed, a description of the charges: "Complete overhaul / Camera inoperative / Repair film advance / Replace rangefinder window / Disassembled camera completely to remove glass shards / Replace small parts as required / Calibrate light meter and rangefinder / Clean and lube lens helicoid - focusing is VERY stiff"

LOL. Wish Jake was here to commiserate with about that one. Also wish I could have talked FIRST REFORMED with that old fart.

So in this terrible world we share at least there are old timers out there fixing up mamiyas and I have a like new yet "Very well used" (cosmetic condition from the same invoice) rig back in the quiver just in time for a jaunt to another hemisphere. And to whichever dirty motherfucker that wound up with Jakes always busted gear - call Bob at Precision Camera Works in Skokie IL. Also in the good column the other day this dude driving a VW van gave me the peace sign when I was standing at a crosswalk. He was catchin my vibes


the kids always ask why I don't like to go to church and I always tell them that's not where I can find god
