Nick just graduated. Bought a used car, his first, clearly loving the freedom and oblivious to all else.

Laura: Who is this?
Brendan Frye: I won't waste your time: you don't know me.
Laura: I know everyone, and I have all the time in the world.
Brendan Frye: Ah, the folly of youth.

some days aren't yours at all
they come and go as if they're someone else's days
they come and leave you behind
someone else's face
and it's harsher than yours
and colder than yours

like an instrument for a song
like the sun for tomorrow's dawn
every moment of time's just an answer to find
what you're here for
what you breathe for
what you wake for
what you bleed for

"I loved to go out and shoot in strange places, to talk to the types of people I`d never meet were it not for the excuse of the camera. I love the heft of the black metal in my hands, the way it felt like a weapon. I love to press the shutter, to freeze time, to turn little slices of life into rectangles rife with metaphor. I love to collect the rectangles, like so many souvenir trinkets, to gaze at them, study them, find the one that best summarized a particular lived moment..."

The model I photographed yesterday, her water just broke.

These pics are of someone's mother a day before their birth. And someday that person might look at these photos.

Wouldn't that be a cool thing to have?

It pains me, psychically, to hear Anderson Cooper reporting on Paris Hilton.

Now he's interviewing a Hilton flak who says being let go after two days on a 45-day sentence is completely normal because the jails are overcrowded. Not that its this guy's fault but who the fuck are they overcrowded with, anyway?

1.2 million non-violent drug offenders, that's who.

Thanks guys, thanks for letting the probation-flaunting car-driving drunk-a-holics go free while the guy who just wants to listen to Led Zepplen, ponder life and smoke something that doesn't even cause cancer is safely caged away from us civil folks out here.

Oh wait, the flak just compared Hilton's plight to Jack Nicholson's in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. I think that poor man is on drugs himself now that I mention it...

Had my first "real" model shoot today. She's a friend of a friend of a friend. Due Tuesday

Yes, this Tuesday.

I knew what to put behind her, she knew how to be. It was a really good combination.

I was really honored to be asked.

If natural disasters are god's wrath over sin, why does he send all the tornadoes and hurricanes to the so-called "Bible Belt"?
