I am the way. I am the light. I am cult-lite.

Cult Lite - no suicidal stand-offs required.

1984 Lite - they spy on you but you elect them anyway

News Lite - well, you know, you see it on the teevee every day

Reality Lite - everything minus the body bags

She has every reason

May be my best photo in a while.....

in the lazy piss fields
citizens roam
disabled by oaths chokes
burnt offerings
loaned throats
stretching dainty towards the rope
a bad case of martyr's shingles
a worry wart
split phantoms
soot breath
exhaling pardons
to ease their passing
into the piss fields

Returning to lovely Northern Ohio - Life in the air age - old Uhaul Building

Birthday month self series - The world's most intense Olan Mills photographer - don't piss him off or he'll destroy the negatives.

My friends, and CreDi contributors, John and David are heading off to Sofia, Bulgaria tomorrow. If I know them they'll immediately semi-master some of the local folk instruments and be seen jamming with the natives in some Sofia pub. Cheers!

And here's my recent version of them - acrylic, 2006, Holtek

Back in the day any sane person knew never to mess with the Dock Boss.

Trespasser is such a harsh word. I prefer to think of us as "freelance infrastructure inspectors". Anyway, on my recent visit to the bowels of Northern Ohio I snapped a few.

You can't have nothing but respect for those old lead-based red paints - they just fucking last forever. (I didn't adjust the saturation, it really is that red)

Almost makes me wanna go up and eat a few chips and kill some brain cells just out of respect.

Sometimes when I make things I like to pretend that the fabrication/creation is happening just as the thing also emerges from out of the ground, like an artifact. I like to find what I create and create what I find. I love that "50-50 state" where the object is half there and half still buried. Sometimes in order to complete a work part of it has to remain undiscovered, still buried in the ground.

The best picture I never took - coming soon - my rescued photo collection

In honor of it being my birthday month here's the start of a month-long self portrait series.
