20170404: Playing like a youngster… Grunge effect.

Print

OK, so people photography is boring to me & all that.

However, I was asked to do some work for a young man & given the image he sent me and the request of turning it into line art.

I sent him back these 2 images… to consider for his posters for sales in his shop.

I did not listen to this man’s music, the image was kind of there in & of it’s self. A musician , a photo that I guess a lot of young people know….

So the Grunge effects, the twisting turning it into some art of his flavor…

Waiting to see what the client thinks.

An old dog that knows a few tricks, an artist that never stops learning, that is me, not in any box because I just ever fit in one.

Creative Shooting/Artistic fun  Folks

20170220: Fruit Fun Bandito!

20170219-pancho-to-mangosfb

The fruit cart vendor & I have been exchanging laughs in my broken Espanola…

The other day we chatted of Pancho Villa, so yes I had to have some fun with it. Currently getting this printed out for him. Hopefully the print shop will bring the printout over a little bit before he leaves for the. I took the photos of the mango stick & fruit cups just a little while ago before he got to busy, as he was setting up.

too funny for me & a bit of creative fun!

20170106: Some days you need a bucket to sit in…

20170106-pot-to-sit-in-6852fb

Yes, I entered my courtyard and the cat was just sitting there.

I laughed and after putting my stuff in my house, came back out with my camera and tried to get the cat to turn it’s head towards me.

If you know cats, you can understand that I just gave up and shot this.

It is cooler around here & I assume the bucket full of dirt had warmed up in the sun, made a nice comfortable seat for the cat.

One of 2 courtyard cats, not really anyone’s cat it just does courtyard duty chasing mice.

20170101: Roommates no more…

20161231end-of-year-6798fb

I was aware of one of these guys running around in my peasant room, a little surprised when I caught the 2nd one.

Mouse sticky traps, so there is no way to get them off safely, notice that the business end is sharp and stuck down…

Woke up one night and thought I felt something under my foot. Pretty certain it was not one of these guys, but I did see it and knew the colder weather would drive them inside.

cut & paste from internet: “”About 250,000 people in Mexico are stung by scorpions each year—more people than in any other country. Several dozen people die each year. Indeed, for the past 20 years, scorpion stings have been the leading reason in Mexico for  deaths due to adverse reactions and poisoning caused by venomous plants and animals. There are more than 200 different species of scorpions in Mexico, of which only 8, all belonging to the genus Centruroides are a significant public health risk.””

Well, it is hard to tell, but the scorpions are common here, so like camping in the desert, I knock out my boots & shoes before putting them on.

The 3 stripe scorpion in the right side of the top row looks closest and very common in this area. Also not considered deadly, just painful! NICE to know!

Happy new year folks!

The leaves are falling and the birds still gather, a time of renewal & reflections.

Happy New Year folks, may whatever the energies bring to you, may you weather it in the good faith of learning and understanding.

2016-feliz-navidad-de-san-juanfb

Just the graphic design department playing around.

Thanksgiving is no celebrated here in Mexico that I know of, but the Christmas stuff is going up.

I am going to see if a local print shop will try selling this poster for our mutual financial gain. It is getting busy here and will continue through Christmas time…

any way the fun and games of a bored professional photographer & graphic designer.
