Been busy these past few days driving my brother back and forth to the hospital to see his second daughter.
I can see the joy in his eyes everytime he sees her, he really wanted a boy(like most of us dudes) but he loves her, and i see it. cutest little thing you've ever seen.
Today my brothers (2nd) daughter was born
Almost aborted operation patchy beard.. I JUST CANT DO IT!

♫NaS - Untitled(Louis Farrakhan)♫
This war isnt one sided, with demons tuggin me west end, i got the "good guys" on the east tuggin on me.. too bright to make out any definitive descriptions.. one second its a blue dude.. a long haired white guy... some fat bald guy, i have no idea but i thinking im leaning to the east
but only time will tell.. im being told i have a purpose.. as i've been told before, but its getting faded with every misstep i take
"I dreamt this day came
'Cause I stood in the face of damnation
Satan, spat at him, flat out disgraced him
He want my blood; why me?
Why not the fake ones who deserve death, man
Fuck it, I'll take one
Can stop me but can't stop a whole nation
Of millions who feel you deceived them
They believing reparation makes it even
So I'm deadly now because of one reason
In Budapest, Japan, China, and Switzerland
We getting it in, son
Another bullet passed by--missed me
Wondering who plotting to get me
Alphabet boys still plotting against me
To hush me up and stuff me in the pockets of history
You won't remember why they came to clip me
When time go by, you'll soon forget me" - NaS

Since starting photography (september 2008) i have a small catalogue of photographers work i spent nights drooling over, just wondering how they accomplished certain shots. with time and practice and the learning of fundamentals, i began to slowly understand how and why these guys are so dope.
Their excellence was almost contagious, and i'm hoping to get sicker as the time goes, i wanna get infected with whatever skills these dudes have on the camera.

♫Atmosphere - God's bathroom Floor♫
This time around.. our conversation didn't go so well. He basically informed me that he's not angry by my curiosity or inquisitiveness, but at times i can be quite disrespectful when using his name and certain word combinations.
I asked him can he blame me? theres so much -crap-going on in the world i can't help but question him... needless to say it didn't end well, and i ended up on his bathroom floor, i must admit i'm not impressed, i thought it'd be nicer..
but hey, God's got nice tiles

one word that embodies everything you can say about the photo. The Burning Monk, taken by Malcolm W. Browne.
"A Buddhist monk from the Linh-Mu Pagoda in Hue, Vietnam, burned himself to death at a busy intersection in downtown Saigon, Vietnam, on June 11, 1963. His name was Thich Quang Duc. Witnesses say that Thich Quang Duc and two fellow monks arrived at the intersection by car, Thich Quang Duc was seen getting out of the car, seating himself in the traditional lotus position and the accompanying monks helped him pour gasoline over himself. He ignited the gasoline by lighting a match and burned to death in a matter of minutes. "
( www.articlesbase.com/politics-articles/the-selfimmolation... )
he was protesting the oppression by then Vietnamese government which were run by the catholic church, who had set a ban on the flight of Buddhist flags, and even imprisoning monks

(Back to the saga)
This is my photoshop spin on one of my most favorite photos ever(Dali Atomicus), i have another photo in my 365 that gains inspiration from it Day 112
It was taken by the great Phillipe Halsman of another immense inspiration of mine, Salvador Dali.. depicting suspension
very trippy.. atleast back then
And it continues
Man, in all my years living in Miami.. it has never been this cold. Avergaing around 35 degrees this past week, it is ridiculous..
we actually had to call and get the AC fixed.. FOR HEAT! that is unprecedented... on top of that its raining, i could swear i'm in seattle.

♫Eminem - Like toy soldiers(instrumental)♫
I am embarking on another saga within my 365. Photos that have awe struck me, or held major influence on me over the years. I will try and incorporate myself into Life's most influential photos ever.
This photo was taken by photographer Eddie Adams of the Associated Press, he won a Pulitzer prize for this often "misinterpreted" scene, as South Vietnamese police chief Nguyen Ngoc Loan executed a viet cong captian.
this photo has always been very striking to me, very powerful, i hope one day to have a full scale print of it in my house.. i got this idea from an episode of mTV cribs i seen in middle school, i believe it was Dave Navarro.
