boat barn

A barn used for storing boats that are being repaired, in Quissett, MA. Locked with a stick, the only way to fly.

Here's Weegee!

I have a big piece of fabric hanging on my wall with a small section of this picture printed on it. It's called "Crowd at Coney Island, 1940", by Arthur Fellig, a.k.a Weegee. Weegee was a great documentary-style photographer, and was also responsible for the greatest 5-word combination in the history of the English language:

Jack Nicholson was shopped in, but IRL!! OMGGGGGGgg!!!

It took me a few minutes of squinting at the full Coney Island photo to find the section from my tapestry thing. Once I did, I realized I've had it up on the wall backwards for 4 years. ROFL MY WAFFLE!!

I've been doing a bunch of restorations lately. This is Shanghai on some 4th of July. Not the city, Shanghai's the old guy. Got a flag. Some kind of wackypack flag. The kids behind him have the right idea, but I don't know what country Shanghai thinks he's in. It's definitely not China, which is too bad because that picture would've been an awesome metaphor... for something.

The top picture is the original scanned color print. The next one is the finished retouched image, and the bottom one is just the same image cropped, to cut out all the empty space on the side. Shrubs count as empty space.

the brook

Holy Hallmark moment! This is the brook behind my old house. I had an awesome treehouse in that tree at the left, but unfortunately I don't think I have any pictures of it.
35mm black & white, blah blah blah.

A wall at Pompeii, 2001 (35mm film).

My wisdom tooth post will have to wait until I get some wood-carving tools. You'll see what I mean, someday.
