It was blatantly obvious the car had been sideswiped. I remember as a kid my dad would take, my mom and my sister and I on these strange road trips. One time he took us 400 miles roundtrip and the highlight was watching some jack ass pass several cars, (us included) at the same time and sideswipe the lead car in our lane. My old man pulled along side the victim’s car. His front bumper was ripped off his car and laying in the street, and the old man says, “hey, did he hit you?” BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! It was then I learned the joy of asking the blatantly obviousRead More →

I met this man at the bottom of Hope street in downtown Los Angeles. Hope passes over 3rd,  and I was able to see down to 3rd street where he was. He’s a homeless man sitting against a steam port. I asked him if I could shoot a photo. He said, yes. The steam was always blowing up and away from him, but every once in a while the winds would shift and the steam would blow against his head. He’d get wet and have to sit there like that dripping wet in the cold. I asked why he didn’t go somewhere dry. He saidRead More →

The tower of Scientology, not to be confused with the Tower of Terror ride at Disneyland.

A little before I shot this, OccupyLA was having it’s clash with the LAPD at City Hall. The LAPD had body slammed a photographer and a video of the incident went out online. After seeing first hand how some members of the LAPD treated fellow human beings, while I was there taking photos, I started reading up on laws, and public spaces, what I can shoot in public and what I can’t. Most of LA has a public sidewalk on at least one side of every street. Property lines start at the edge of the sidewalk, and since I had been reading up on thisRead More →

“Internal Thoughts Manifested” I absorb everything around me. The ideas bang around like protons. Soon they collide and decay into new thoughts, my thoughts, and the ideas flow out like rivers of light. 2 days later someone had spray painted it to look like a clown. This time lapse photography in Los Angeles was shot just outside of Little Tokyo. I was just trying to get a decent exposure of this street art. Then a bus drove by and made a right in front of me. The light streaks it left behind were beautiful and lined up perfectly with the street art.Read More →

In Bel-Aire, they don’t fix their onramps, they just get new ones. The 405 fwy crosses Sunset blvd in Bel-Aire. This is a very rich part of town and when I first moved to LA, it’s where I called home. I was staying with a friend’s family at the time. Sunset blvd goes from the coast all the way into downtown, and so I’d watch the cars around me go from Mercedes and BMW’s in Bel-Aire, to junkers deep in Hollywood, then economy cars in the city.  Read More →
