When I have sex with someone I forget who I am. For a minute I even forget I’m human. It’s the same thing when I’m behind a camera….

Lens update

12 weeks. I took Jenny’s advice and called the head of repair at Penn. He returned my call within about half an hour, after checking with the factory….


We’re going on 7 weeks since I dropped off my broken lens at Penn Camera to be fixed. So I thought I would bug them again since I…

I just came back from Artomatic. I was a bit worried with it taking place in Crystal City. Normally it takes place in abandoned buildings in run-down neighborhoods,…

busses and building managers

Right on schedule, my building manager was fired today. Third one we’ve been through since I moved in here. They have a warranty only good for 2 years….
