Three of Us

Three of Us

I am not going repeat what I already wrote here. A quick synopsis, starting August 1st, 2010 I will publish a picture I take that day everyday for a year (well to be exact I will do this everyday until July 31st, 2011). This is the 44th of those photographs. Also, there is a Flickr collection called “The Awesome Leftovers” where I put the daily shots (if any) that didn’t make the cut.

The three of us hitting up Paquitos for some good food and good times.

Here’s the rest of the shots, Day 44 – East Village at Night.

I am not going repeat what I already wrote here. A quick synopsis, starting August 1st, 2010 I will publish a picture I take that day everyday for a year (well to be exact I will do this everyday until July 31st, 2011). This is the 42nd of those photographs. Also, there is a Flickr collection called “The Awesome Leftovers” where I put the daily shots (if any) that didn’t make the cut.

A first today there are two photos. Brooklyn Bombshells vs. Manhattan Mayhem, Brooklyn took Manhattan to town, the final score, 125 to 80. Brooklyn played very well. Anyway, I thought both teams deserved a shot of the day.

We’ll start with Brooklyn Bombshells. This photo is of Hard Anya (i4i) stretching before the bout.

The next shot is of Miss American Thighs (76) of Manhattan Mayhem also stretching before the game.

I love roller derby. Anyway, most of the photographs are not action shots unfortunately. I was trying out some new settings during the jams. I wanted to to see if I could capture the movement of the skaters with less blur.  At least a focus somewhere in all the fury, but tragically most of the shots turned out too grainy.

Here’s the rest of the shots from that night that turned out, Day 42 – I Love Roller Derby.

I realize the date is an important one to remember as well, bigger than all this. Maybe that is another reason two seems fitting, though honestly it just came to me while I was typing here. I am not usually like this, but that day I remember and give my respects to what it is and was.

I am not going repeat what I already wrote here. A quick synopsis, starting August 1st, 2010 I will publish a picture I take that day everyday for a year (well to be exact I will do this everyday until July 31st, 2011). This is the 39th of those photographs. Also, there is a Flickr collection called “The Awesome Leftovers” where I put the daily shots (if any) that didn’t make the cut.

The edge of my shoe, the grays, the blacks, the whites, the shadows… I really like this picture. I like the textures… I like the way it makes me feel.

The extras are mostly of Joanna, Laurel, Thiago and I having lunch at Rice or of the enormous amount of garbage on the streets of New York, Day 39 – Rice.

I am not going repeat what I already wrote here. A quick synopsis, starting August 1st, 2010 I will publish a picture I take that day everyday for a year (well to be exact I will do this everyday until July 31st, 2011). This is the 20th of those photographs. Also, there is a Flickr collection called “The Awesome Leftovers” where I put the daily shots that didn’t make the cut.

I am not in love with any of the shots I took today or I should say I am unsure of my love for them. This is the first time I have felt this way during the year in pictures. I won’t be too dramatic since I just started, but… :] I need to make sure this doesn’t happen in the future. I personally like this picture because they are my friends and this is them, but structurally I am just not sure I feel it. I don’t know.  Maybe I love it… :D

Here are the extras, Day 20 – Blah.

This is the 14th of those photographs. Also, there is a Flickr collection called “The Awesome Leftovers” where I put the daily shots that didn’t make the cut.

This is a shot of Joanna and Zohara, both tired of me taking pictures all the time, showing me their disapproval. Not really…maybe. :]  Here are the seconds of the day, Day 14 – Jo and Zoe.

This taking and cataloging pictures for everyday turns out to be a lot more work than I thought!

Good times.

Being so gay was so fun this year.

When I was hanging out with my friend Joanna today she told me about this article she read this weekend on how sonar is killing, damaging, and/or terrorizing whales, dolphins and other marine animals caught within its range, so I did a little research and found out she wasn’t lying!

According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, “Whales and other marine mammals rely on their hearing for life’s most basic functions, such as orientation and communication. Sound is how they find food, find friends, find a mate, and find their way through the world every day.

…whether it’s the sound of airguns used in oil exploration or subs and ships emitting sonar. Man made sound waves can drown out the noises that marine mammals rely on for their very survival, causing serious injury and even death.”

I had no idea, sometimes I wonder how something so big goes unnoticed in America. Seriously, how without having a TV do I know everything there is to know about Jon and Kate, who is gay on American Idol, and what Britney is up to, but nothing about how for years these poor animals have been and are being tortured. I can’t handle even 20 seconds of hearing the piercing sound of an ambulance screaming from outside, while I sit a couple of floors up inside an office building.  People can be so uncool and unthinking. I have seen many beached whale stories on the news previous to the killing of my tv,  and frankly I do not remember any talk of it being related to sonar. I said it!

You can help out and do something by urging the Obama administration to reject a last minute Bush administration rule that would barrage whales along the Eastern Seaboard, the Gulf of Mexico, California and Hawaii with Navy sonar. Please do so by clicking here.

Still saving the whales.

All About Me

I start many things with good intentions, many, many things. This time I intend to stay focused. This time I will not leave behind what I started. This time it is larger and more important than my obsession with Martha Stewart, all design shows, and Teresa Witherspoon. :P This time it is about the greater good...this time I am serious.

Wanna cool, original, organic cotton, handmade, super fresh t-shirt? Yes you do...
