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…

20181207: Lesson on photography withOUT a tripod, yet long shutter times for cellphone users!

I learned to shoot night street photography in Los Angeles in the 1970s, specially leaving my job working after school at 1am or 2 am.

I could not bring a tripod to school, so I had training to hold my 35mm film camera still while taking several second long shots.

  1. LEARN to hold your breath. Obviously, if you are talking, the camera is shaking. I was into swimming so that was easy.
  2. Practice “lightly” touching the shutter button to active it. I learned to shoot a gun at an early age. YOU SQUEEZE the trigger, Not smash or yank the trigger if you want to hit the bull’s eye. Same with cameras!!
  3. Use supports! If you have a cellphone on a long pole, the wiggle is worse, However if that pole is braced against a streetlight post or wall or car BEHIND the camera!  No one knows even if you send it off a minute later & you got a better photo because the  street light post or wall helped keep the camera steadier.
  4. Turn OFF  the auto flash, YOU DECIDE when to let the lights of the “Scene” light your photo or add flash.

 

20181027 night bridge & field of flowers-4935FB

No tripod, but standing on the side of the road and waiting to have no cars going by. Grab a breath, let some out & hold it. Press the shutter down smoothly & slowly.

In this photo you can see the cat stopped for a second on the steps, the cat is blurry but easy to make out it’s shape and adds a Rembrandt effect to the over all image. I held the shutter open for I think 2 seconds or more.

and this photo again, the graininess of the High ISO, the long slow shutter effect & overall appearance of the image is surrealistic.

20160923 San Juan e-book-0182FB

Again, seconds long shutter, notice the fig leafs moved in the slight breeze but the cactus & wall stay sharp.

20181128: Just a damage control of my hands in this barricaded investigative photojournalist day in San Juan de los Lagos Jal, MX.

Yeah, I got up my nerve and cut open the bandages.

Overall it is Promising, the left pinky works some and as you see the color is good.

I can move it but the smashed flesh/muscle needs more time. I have nerve feeling too, but I did an internal scream when I flexed it open too much.

You can see I keep decent level of 1st Aid kits & the knife I put to the guy that kept saying “Fuck Jesus, this is my town. I’ll bring my friends to beat your ass up & take your gear”, is back in the 1st kit. In a country where there are no building codes and lots of earthquakes ONLY IDIOTS HAVE NO POCKET KNIVES IN THEIR 1ST AID KITS!

I had wrapped the left pinky with tape to immobilize it, so the knife was needed.

20181128 lock down 1st Aid-5138FB

20181128 lock down 1st Aid-5143FB

the left pinky SMASHED, but the wound is closing & I could flex it. The whiteish color is due to the dressing and just moisture. But you can see the red of muscle on either side sticking out.

20181128 lock down 1st Aid-5145FB

So I re-dressed it and maintained the bent position to close that wound and immobilize it. Hopefully a little more air.

So the war wounds & scars of life well life, I survive.

I will see where it goes, but someone came claiming to be a lawyer so they now have these & other evidence to “Be entered as CHARGES ON THE POLICE of Violation of NOT HAVING A BREAK IN & ARREST FEDERAL ORDER FIRST, plus DUE TO THE FACT that for 3 the years I have been here many attempts of the standard out, “I’m your amigo come party & get drunk” or worse has been at least weekly. I have BY MEXICAN LAW “SELF-DEFENSE RIGHT TO BE ARMED”. again the Police violated the laws because they thought they had a dumb gringo they could just push around.

20181125: Street light & church school wall.

My fun street lamp post with a amusing shadow.

The building behind it is the church school, you kind of get the idea of how old of a building it is, and how unsafe in an earthquake it would be too.

It is 10:43pm, another day down & still alive, barricaded in my apt still.

20181009 Mex stone & street-4874FB

So I am still posting photos and stories and looking to see what I can do to amuse myself with.

20181125: The fountain again, don’t know if it is about independence…

Given the level of liars in the city of San Juan de los Lagos, I have not investigated if this is or is not a liberty pillar, but it is fun to shoot.

It is now  5:19pm & all is quiet still, I am alive… no one tried to bust down any doors or make any comments or threats. It’s Sunday so maybe they did not want to scare the tourists.

Any way Larga vida a la revolucion! #occupyiss_intspacestation

20181116: A bit of moon over San Juan de los Lagos river bridge

Yes, always the night photographer, the flooded river gave a nice vantage point to shoot from without wet feet or tripod.

20181027 night bridge & field of flowers-4935FB

There was quite a bit of traffic so I did not bother with getting out a flash for light painting the bridge just a little bit.

Maybe next storm???

20181115: Natural Frames to accent the photographic image lesson

Yes, I am using this photo for a 2nd lesson because of what it involved to catch my eye.

That center cross is a telephone & power pole.

20181027 night bridge & field of flowers-4953FB

But with the three sharp triangle shapes pointing near it & the semi obvious church towers behind it. You tend to think it is a religious cross too, then after you let your eyes play in the clouds, you come back to see that it is a power pole.

I am using standard advertising & artistic design concepts at least as old as the building themselves & that church is 300 years old or so.

So the ‘golden circle’, ‘spiral’ & ‘triangle or leading lines’ of the Renaissance Art schools is still alive & WELL.
