Normally this site is about my art. For this post I am writing about someone else who enjoyed art. Past tense. This week a disgusting act occurred at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. Dharun Ravi and Molly Wei decided that broadcasting Tyler Clementi, Ravi’s roommate, having sex was worthy of sharing with the whole world. Dharun seemed to be fed up with Tyler a mere few weeks into the 2010 鸿博彩票 year.
The internet can be a beautiful place that brings people together or it can be a very dangerous weapon. The next time you post something online, make sure it’s not going to drive someone over the edge. A lot of people are on the edge. If you have a heart and can see that, don’t be the dickhead that pushes them to end their life. Be the person that extends a hand and does the right thing.
Everyone has faced a bully at some point in their life. There comes a point where you either stand up to them or succumb to their constant ridicule and berating. The next time you are listening to music, imagine that somebody’s dream of playing music was destroyed by people who couldn’t just leave them be.
Rest in peace, Tyler. I hope your story resonates with people for a very long time.
People die every day. Sometimes it’s by choice. Sometimes it’s because they’ve done something incredibly stupid. Today I heard that the owner of Segway perished off of a cliff. On his own product. Do people really need to be told not to ride a glorified Pogo Stick near the edge of a cliff? If you are the type of person that does this type of stupid thing, please take a look at the image to the left. It could save your life.

The wedding gallery below was taken at in Paterson, NJ this past summer. Lovely location with a lot of great natural light. Made for some great photos!
I also had the opportunity to photograph on the / stage @鸿博彩票网址 4:00PM. I needed a press pass so that I’d be free to take photos with being harassed by concert organizers/police. There’s nothing like waiting until the last minute and Joey (lead guitarist) literally handed me the pass as he was tuning his awesome mirrored guitar. That’s rock and roll, folks!
I made sure to enjoy the music as I took photos. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in what I am doing that I fail to enjoy whatever moment I’m in. (Valerie also took a few shots of me in action!) The band kicked ass and, like most bands, sounded better live. That’s something that can’t be captured in a studio.
My favorite brand of paper to use with this printer is Ilford Premium Pearl which was recommended to me by a photographer friend named
Back to . Their premium pearl paper has a slight stipple effect. A very nice texture reminiscent of vintage photo paper. It’s sheen is somewhere between matte and gloss. Perfect for those who have a hard time making decisions. I also think their matte paper is quite nice. All of their papers have corresponding printer profiles available through Ilford’s web site.

If you are looking for a printer that can handle every type of paper flawlessly, look no further. Sure it’s a nice chunk of change, but this isn’t a printer than you use for five years and throw away.
A decade ago James and I both shopped at in downtown Scotch Plains, NJ. At that time he needed a logo for his business. He still uses the logo to this day! I’d like to eventually update it a bit, but I might have a difficult time convincing him.
Without James I would have never met Steve Carlesi and countless other people over the years. So if you’re a kid reading this, buying comics is never a waste of money. It could be your big break!
So and support the guy who kick started my career.
Neil van Niekerk ran a Photoshop contest on his web site. The original photo featured a performer from climbing a graffiti wall. I wasn’t blown away by the winning entry. But it is what it is.
In the link below you can view the winner as well as the original image. My take is on the left.
