The twins are at war

What happens when you get to an intersection and both paths offer things that you want?

Giger, oh Giger


I woke this morning and had this GIGER image in mind. It IS my favourite piece of his. Then another 13 share equal second. Pure unadulterated genius.
Yet again I am looking for stuff. Prints. Books. More Prints. Exhibits. Paperwork. Enough with looking for things. I need food.
Back to Giger for one sec. You rock.

I blame the digital camera

It's interesting how things change, day to day but even hour to hour. We all find ourselves in a position of darkness and then something happens that makes you feel that it was worth the ride.

I once said that 'time stops everything happening at once'. It's a great line. It gives me hope that things will right themselves.

We tend to trivialise things so much as we live in such a disposable world. I blame the digital camera. It's taught us some pretty evil ways. I remember taking loads of photos as a kid and running down to the chemist in Coogee to get them developed. I remember the cost of developing being the sole reason to get my weekend work there as well. I needed to fund my habit. In my eyes the photos were all good. Every single one of them. Most out of focus and blurry, but I would always look for an iota of good in each of them. I tried to save them for the trash. Jesus, even the 'black' photos taught me something. Usually to take off a cover. Now its typically 'click and delete'. We only keep what we consider perfect. What a waste of opportunities.

Alright, so I say all the above and I will guarantee that I will still use my DSLR. I will also like to add a disclaimer, that as much as I live and abide by some of the silent rules of a digital camera-like world, I prefer and look for the Polaroid in people.
