I Have a Thing for Orange

I Have a Thing for OrangeNot sure why, but like the title says, I have a thing for orange. Remember this one?

Anyways, the bikes not even in focus and I chopped off his head and shoes, so nothing special about this picture but oh well. I like orange.

I still need to sell my bike. Maybe I need to wait until the weather gets a little better. Btw, that’s Kim and Melissa (students from 2010) in the background.

Darkness into Light

In addition to Tony’s list, I watched a documentary on portrait and fashion photographer Richard Avedon called Darkness and Light. Here’s a quote from the video that really resonated with how I’ve been approaching photography:

What drives him is this deeper more profound genuine interest in the people that he’s seeking out, in the stories they have to tell, in the life experience they have. He’s interested…the world fascinates him.

The image above was taken in Chinatown, San Francisco, when I arrived way too early one morning.
