Cleaning the Closet

Note: The Pages o’ Peat have moved to http://peat.org/ — please update your bookmarks and references accordingly. Thank you!

I was cleaning my closet today and found a few CDs with photos on them, including this set. I had the pleasure of taking pictures with Juno Reactor 2001, when they came through Portland on their Shango World Tour. Great people, great music, and a hell of a show.

In other news, I miss my Contax 35mm camera and Ilford HP5+ film.

Ignite Photos + Extras

Descent

As promised, the set of photos from Ignite Portland 2 — plus a couple extras. Share and enjoy!

Ignite Portland

February 1, 2008

IgniteI’m doing a presentation at the Bagdad Theater on the evening of Tuesday, February 5th. The event, Ignite Portland, is a series of short presentations — just five minutes each — about weird, interesting, and unusual ideas.

The official site can be found here here, and the Oregonian had a write up here.

Pretty cool!

My presentation is about “Beauty in Abandonment” — it’s about photographing abandoned places and things in the Portland area. I’ll also be wandering around, helping people register, find seats, and answering questions about the whole shebang.

Anyhow. Seats are going fast, and it looks like it’ll be a standing room only event (unless, of course, the Super Tuesday primaries thin out the crowd). If you’re coming, or thinking about coming, please RSVP so that we can better anticipate everything that needs to be done to accommodate everyone comfortably:

Hello, Fall

November 4, 2007

Today’s the first day in a long time that I’ve felt totally relaxed.  It was one of those “lounge about the house in your bathrobe, cook something, stroll to the store to buy some basics, cook something, take some pictures of the fall foliage, cook something, catch up on reading, cook something, have a nap with the cats, cook something, and sit back with a nice drink after cooking something”  days.

Ever had one of those?

I highly recommend it.

Say Aaahh ..

This is the most original photo series I’ve seen in a long, long time.  Ever wondered how your tongue sees the world?

Street Art in Japan

September 8, 2007

A few of my graffiti photos from Tokyo have been explained and pulled into a Flickr group for Japanese street art … it’s a big collection.  Worth checking out, if you’re into such things.
