So, I have this wee Minox that I take around when being a digital doofus is just wrong. Finally got around to developing a roll from August in LA. (Four LA, one Stinson beach.)

taking the time to clarify that point... for those one or two people who might have been duped.

I think that's great. In fact, that's my ultimate goal in life. (I happen to be an anti-intellectual and anti-rationalist.) Seriously, thanks for the complement.

Peace and much love...

Could you elaborate a bit on this subject? :)) I've never seen such a thing. This is really interesting.

Peace and much love...

Pretty cool either way.

I guess I've gotten used to you taking color pictures so these were unexpected. Definately dark though so not that different from your normal style. I kind of like the third picture, with all the busses. The last (beach) picture is cool of course but that's one of those you can just throw in there because everybody will like it.

that one... (5.00 / 1) (#10)

with the buses is in a middle section of Broadway, downtown, which is pretty during the day, but I was clueless enough to go over there after sundown at first, which incidentally, is when the generic looking men who want all the women they see to behave like prostitutes come out. They get kind of crabby if you don't.

I'm pretty sure it belongs there. (none / 0) (#11)

Look at all five pictures together, and what does each of them depict? If it were just the four in the city it would be ok, but there would be no counterpoint.

I've noticed that when it apprears she's being random, you just aren't paying close enough attention. After all, there are more than five frames on a roll of film.
