20190423: A 23 Day fun, San Juan de los Lagos design project. Still Alive



San Juan de los Lagos, Jal., MX did a design contest recently & while I was not in anyway aware of it or involved, PLUS THEY HATE ME any way, today just for fun, I put my skills together with a design just for the challenge.

I think of nothing more challenging than to design something beautiful for someone who WANTS YOU DEAD! Day 152 since locking myself inside.

Any way, hours later, here is the results:

20190423 LOGO & Saint Church rainbow_B-2981_BE

Any way, still trying to survive, “Christ -El Cristo” has told me not to leave the apartment yet, I am still inside & fighting to survive.

20190412: Never Stop Learning & Picasso said it too! Day 141 Still Learning too!



It is an old saying, from my studying Taoism as well as just something I learned or “Gut Feeling” training as a small child,

“NEVER STOP LEARNING” because that is the “Key” the the Meaning of Life!

Print

So many people around me in life, STOP learning, stop caring & close their minds.

I have watched USA Republicians/Democrats talk of “How open minded they are as they demand Censorship, then a couple months later, they are posting against censorship.

However, NEITHER OF THOSE KIND OF PEOPLE SPEAK OUT against the corruption so blatantly shown the USA people in daily life.

Or the laws AGAINST people like me WHO RISK OUR LIVES TO EXPOSE CORRUPTION.

The arrest of Assange makes that obvious, Chelsea Manning also arrested again, Snowden still in hiding are all signs of a corruption system WELL STABILIZED in a society.

So yeah, most people STOP LEARNING as soon as possible.

Like the Ph.D person who gets out of college & hangs it on a wall to “Display” but then declares they “Know it all”. Yet quickly are proven they do not.

At 61 years old, I have never stopped learning. Just as I started out with a plastic Japanese made camera in 1962, in the 1990s I was looking & learning digital photography. I was 1st learning of it in the 1980s from photography friends who were doing the “school training” of it. 1988 I became a Photo Editor for 6 newspapers under one publishing house, so yes I too had to embrace it.

At 1st I was a “Filmy person” & laid out a business of only doing film photography. But as I got into it & saw the future of it, PLUS THE ADVANTAGE of digital production over wet darkroom hours to make a single print & hen repeat that “artistic process”.

I SIMPLY EMBRACED THE DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHIC WORLD & have always been learning every since.

As a Independent Investigative Photojournalist, my life depends of ability to show evidence repetitively. I am still alive in San Juan de los Lagos, Jal., MX where they kill for profit, stealing, lying, cheating in a city WITH A VATICAN-CARTEL APPROVED “FAKE MIRACLE”. And they have 300 years of Vatican APPROVAL!!

Shows why they do not CARE THEY ARE INSULTING their own God & Saint!

20190412: Reflections, Trees & river of San Juan de los Lagos, Jal., MX



Just one of those days, a photograph I took months ago & never did the post of.

So “Reflections” is an appropriate title to remember when 141days ago I could go outside & see sunshine, here in San Juan de los Lagos, Jal., MX. A city that now wants to openly kill me

20181009 Mex stone & street-4905_BE

Again, as in the previous post on leading lines, I wandered back & forth to find a nice composition & the bright tree in the middle of the foreground captures the eye.

The dark foreground trees then capture the eyes as you go down the bright tree & are drawn to the right side, then you follow it down to the river and & follow the line of trees back downstream.

The darker trees on either side of the image “frame” the composition.

As always I am a independent Investigative photojournalist who works for the “Spiritual Realm” more than humans & I am now looking for an “EXIT” from this murdering FOR PROFIT city in Mexico where they kill journalists & photojournalists JUST FOR FUN!

San Juan de los Lagos doesn’t like the fact I exposed their Vatican APPROVED MIRACLE for the circus act it is AND THE LOCALS DO NOT EVEN BELIEVE IN GOD OR El Cristo as a Living Spiritual ENTITY. It is just plastic DOLL THEY SELL FOR PROFITS!

20190412: Leading Lines Photography another quick lesson. Day 141, alive & still teaching.



I have done several of these photographs lessons on “leading lines”.

Here is another, San Juan de los Lagos city photograph I took as part of that series. Fighting for my life in this town of thieves, cheats & murderers, it has just taken time to get back to it.

It is necessary lesson to learn in both Graphic Design & painting-photography, if you want someone to pay attention to the image, be it an advertising for a client or artwork to sell in a gallery, you need to keep the person’s attention.

That is the “job” of the use of “leading lines”,

20181009 Mex stone & street-4894_BE

As you can see, the river, the walls of the river channel & even the clouds “LEAD” the person’s eyes to look into the image & down the river & city along the channel.

Even the Clouds on the right side has a hook in the very distance, so that after the left cloud’s dark area & contrasts against the bright city under it, you are drawn back to the very depth of the photo to the bridge in the middle of the river channel.

In the Masters of painting & art schools these are the golden circle, triangle,

Golden_Spiral1

and in use of a master painting,

Golden circle demo

So the next time you take a photograph, be it a cellphone or a the most expensive camera available, think about your composition & what you want the viewer to pay attention to.

20181209: Just another day in San Juan de los Lagos Jal. Mx. surviving the corruption! Day 14 reporting on my status & health.

Yeah, 15 days down & NOW the 16th day of locking out THE CORRUPT MEXICAN POLICE, food & water holding out OK. Slow to upload these videos but doing fine.

Yes, it is amusing to see that all “Those OH, I care so much” type people running away as fast as possible.

After all, EVERYONE KNOWS women are always concerned about their “Social Status” before the truth of anything.

So the arrogant Christians & Catholics are just as lousy to depend on. In the 15 minute video I explain the why of it even.

But I do wish the Rainbow warriors of the Indigenous people of 6 continents would wake up.

After all, isn’t this what they are suppose to be waiting for, a sign from the “Spiritual Realm & Spirits” of SUPPORTING the 1st Nation People of the PLANET??

any way, still OK & joking with myself in humor of the mess I am in for those Gods of your planet.

Remember this Christmas season, It is the Solstice you SHOULD BE CELEBRATING, not a faked story by someone who desires gold, silver, material wealth…

The only REASON San Juan de los Lagos wants anyone to come here is TO STEAL FROM THEM…
