KOBE, JAPAN IMAGES: HIPSTAMATIC EXPERIMENT TINTO

I have so many lenses and films with Hipstamatic, but I tend to get stuck using only 2 or 3, so I am trying every lens/film combo I can to try to find new ones to use. These images below are with LENS: TINTO 1884 and FILM: BLANKO, INA’S 82, and INA’S 69 ~

IN PLANE VIEW: LEAVING VANCOUVER FOR THE BRIGHT LIGHTS OF ORLANDO

I’m not complaining. I just want to point out that I travel all over the globe and I promise you that Vancouver’s Immigration line is the longest I’ve ever been in. And oddly enough, there are over 20 booths capable of holding two officers each, yet upon my arrival in early January and then looking down at it as I was departing in February, I never saw more than 5 officers manning the booths.

HEINZ KETCHUP: THESE ARE THE GOOD OLD DAYS

Andy Warhol has his Campbell’s Tomato Soup can and I have my Heinz Ketchup bottle. When I was a child, the song in the Heinz ketchup commercial was “Anticipation” by Carly Simon and I remember I used to think of it every time I sat and waited for my ketchup to pour out on to my french fries or my green beans (I was a kid! I don’t need it on my green beans anymore.) I was usually sitting across the table from my mother. I remember my young mother, slow ketchup, and Carly’s song.

…Anticipation, anticipation
Is makin’ me late
Is keepin’ me waitin’

And tomorrow we might not be together
I’m no prophet and I don’t know nature’s ways
So I’ll try and see into your eyes right now
And stay right here ’cause these are the good old days…

NYC SUBWAY IMAGES: MAN ON A TRAIN

I was taking the “A” Train downtown this morning and I was looking at this man, I loved his style. I thought of D.H. Lawrence. I don’t know why, I just did.

“It’s no good trying to get rid of your own aloneness. You’ve got to stick to it all your life. Only at times, at times, the gap will be filled in. At times! But you have to wait for the times. Accept your own aloneness and stick to it, all your life. And then accept the times when the gap is filled in, when they come. But they’ve got to come. You can’t force them.”
D.H. Lawrence
