Intro to Digital...

Started a new class, super fun.
My teached gave me and a few other "more advanced" kids in the class a special assignment on top of the Design Elements project. We were to incorporate a "decisive moment" into our composition. I used Chinatowns sweet crosswalk pattern as a template for design, and waited for a time with harsh shadows to make vivid forms over the lines, and waited for a subject to compliment the composition. My teacher seemed stoked on the idea. I'm a total teacher's pet, it's pretty badass.
Broadway at Elysian Valley
City Terrace
Steepest streets ever in City Terrace. I <3 riding non-brakeless.
Metro 84
84 Bus in Chinatown. Also for the decisive moments/design element project.
Evergreen Cemetary
Evergreen Cemetary in Boyle Heights. So stoked on all the shots I got from here. Boyle Heights has got some interesting stuff to shoot, including an impressive stray dog population that I hope to document.
Evergreen Cemetary
This one pretty much composed itself.

For the dead homies...

Trader Joe, please define this word: Trash

I don't have regular access to a computer, so I can't update this everyday, but I'll take the picture a day regardless and upload a few whenever I get access to a computer.
I was riding up Broadway and noticed a huge section of chainlink fence had been broken, so I doubled back and wandered into the field. I didn't have a crucial piece of my tripod, but I'm still happy with the picture I got.

A Photo a Day, Perhaps?

This post is merely a test of this blogs capabilities, to get me used to the intensity that is "". I have been inspired to start a documentation of my life after seeing a website compiled of thousands of Polaroids taken over the span of nineteen years, chronicling the life and eventual death of a man I feel like I got to know somewhat through his images. Each day is a picture without any sort of explanation, leaving the ambiguous images up for interpretation.
The website is here:
Browse through and maybe you will feel inspired like I do.
As the month wraps up, I'll be yet another year older. I want to make this year count. Twenty years old.... fuck!
