Exhibits from the Museum of the Moving Image, NYC.

Museum of the Moving Image.

I went and checked out the JODI exhibit at the Museum of the Moving Image in NYC, and found out they have a pretty awesome permanent collection as well! (Pictured above is a life casting of the make-up for an aged Dustin Hoffman for Little Big Man). JODI are an artist’s collective that has been experimenting with making art out of new media, the web, and video games for… well since forever, basically. I really recommend checking out the show. See more of my photos from the show, and the permanent collection, here.

DC Cherry Blossoms.

Cherry Blossoms in DC

Going down to see the cherry blossoms is a big deal in DC. Somehow, even though I have lived near DC for 10+ years, I’d never done it, until this year. Pretty, and I had not realized just how big the whole area is, I sort of assumed it was a couple of trees… but actually they completely encircle the tidal basin! See more of my cherry blossoms shots here.

Flooding In North Dakota

The top photo is of the Westhope bridge, the last bridge across the Souris (Mouse) River. They have built the bridge up 4+ feet with rocks and sandbags and so forth. 10′ is considered a flood. It’s at 20′ in this photo and rising. The area with the guard rail, just past the speed limit 10 sign, is the actual bridge. normally the river is no wider than that.

The other photos show how the telephone/electrical poles are starting to tilt over, and a swimming muskrat (for the cute factor).


Paris Catacombs.

Last month, I was in Paris for a shoot and I managed to go to the Catacombs and take a few pictures. It was a pretty difficult shooting situation, they don’t allow flash OR tripods, so it was all handheld, high ISO stuff. I had a great time, though, and recommend that anyone visiting Paris should go. Also, I have heard there are parts of the Catacombs that aren’t officially open to the public, but are accessible… if anyone knows how to get into them, let me know!

A few weekends ago (right around the same time my laptop died, thus the long delay), I made it up to NYC for CMJ, and to hang out with friends. Even though I had a badge (thanks, Citypaper), I didn’t make it to many sanctioned events… the highlights for me were the Unruly Records/Senari bash at Love, Ponytail’s performance at the Fader Fort, and of course just hanging out with friends.
