A couple of weeks back, my photography professor (or pee pee) lent me a tripod as an incentive, considering I was pretty much the only one in class who brought back results after three weeks of procastination.
Needless to say, I managed to fuck up about 62 photos trying to get a nicely exposed picture.
These were taken on top of a bridge right under a second floor highway less than a block away from my house. Said second floor has an infamous political story on it's back, not being the most glorified construction in the city (and yet being used by just about everyone), it's mostly a symbol of how our society does it's best to "look" like a first world country, even though we're barely staying out of the third world list.
The following one, though, is from my rooftop. I have a couple more of these, including one with a black cat staring at me. I'll just need to give 'em a few pokes with photoshop to adjust contrast and sharpness. Since the lab I take most of my stuff to is always working under pressure, they really don't take much time on each photo (what could you expect for 10 cents per photo?).
Funny how I'm so used to experience life in the city. Considering I'm hardly calm at night if I don't hear the sound of cars passing by. It's kinda like listening to the sea if you live on the beach, or hard winds on the mountains. Steering steel over concrete is the new ambient sound. Total silence and isolation are nightmares to us children of the post-modern world.
The following pics are just a couple things I shot for different albums I'm working on right now. All the flowers belong to "flora"...
Pretty much the last sight you see before I shoot you.
This is Daniela and her bad habit.
And this one's Itzaé, having a hard time acting oblivious for the camera. She isn't the easiest subject to photograph.
I have most of these in bigger format (for prints and that kind of thing), so if anyone wants 'em, just ask. I pretty much scaled them down to 50% so they'd fit in the internets.
Next up in a surprisingly non-photo update, is a batgirl drawing I made in a boring class...
and a drawing of itzaé I made in ANOTHER boring class...
uh... well, I guess I just ran out of things to show you for today. Hope you liked.
Comment, I haven't heard a word about you all in a while.
