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”,

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,

and in use of a master painting,

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.

20190411: Eye of the Beholder Inspirational Poster, just having fun on Day 140 of being alive, still!



Yep, no one in San Juan de los Lagos has figured out how to kill me yet.

Any way, still looking for my “EXIT” and keeping myself busy.

So many times I have been told by people, NOT customers, of what & hold to do art.

I must remind them, I AM THE ARTIST, I create My art & evolve over time.

They are interested in what I consider crafts-people. People who make the same things, do the same style of artwork for years or decades as income. Not an issue to me, but as an Artist, I evolve. i.e. I got my 1st camera in 1962, I DO NOT STILL USE 1962 PHOTOGRAPHIC EQUIPMENT & I am learning the latest in digital video production now as well!

An artist  DOES NOT SIT LIKE A STAGNATE POND…

As always, I am an independent Investigative Photojournalist against corruption & my current assignment by the “Spiritual Realm” has me in a tight spot.

20190409: “Faux Graffiti, Sailing with the Wind!” Day 138, alive & creating in a NEW Direction!



OK, THIS is a Photoshop created painting, NOPE, not just clicking a button, but yes using a custom program for the paint effects.

Stroke by stroke I painted it. I painted with oils & acrylics for decades & love the heavy layered feel of real paintings.

I then needed a wall with some “Size feelings” to make it a nice large painting.

So I went through my photos of here in San Juan de los Lagos, Jal., MX  & my other photo ad graphics files to find an image that would work,. I have lots of brick and stone work walls but just a plain wall did not work. It just looked too small. Yet it needed the stonework feeling of graffiti work on a wall.

Then I remembered these shots of the town bridge & pulled up this one. Oh, course I do not think anyone in this San Juan city would know what a trimaran is, but I do love the overall effect I have achieved with my  “FAUX Graffiti Sailing with the Wind!” image.

No, San Juan de los Lagos in 138 days has not killed me off yet. They are of course still trying. But I am a stubborn old Investigative photojournalist who knows a few tricks.

They have experience with uneducated peasants & pilgrims who are easy to fool, not someone who for 50 plus years has investigated corruption & heard a hell of a lot of lies.

20190223: #occupyiss a THANK YOU TO ELON MUSK & still Alive on Day 92

Yeah, couple weeks ago Elon Musk did a very fine thing for humanity & LIFE ON THE PLANET.

So I just wanted to take time to Thank him & acknowledge his space station design & Effort to continue to move forward into space.

After all it is better than sitting on one’s butt & partying away.

20190202: Brunch time in 2/3s Forward Ready Room! #occuyiss still Alive on Day 71

Tomorrow is Super Bowl day so no one “In USA” is paying attention to people & outside that game. Even others around the world maybe watching it too.

I stopped watching it when all the flak about Colin Kaepernick got heated few years back.

I agree with Colin’s decision & give respect to Indigenous People & those abused by the 1% ELITE RICH for War mongering Profit.

Remember, ALL MONIES ARE HUMAN INVENTIONS… or a single concept of a invention.

You do not see wolves or mosquitoes PAYING RENT TO BREATHE THE AIR, live on land or find food.

20151120 Emerging Moon-4207-Let the light shine2019FB

Any way, I am running low on food after 71 Days of #occupyiss_intspacestation & not much of any supplies incoming.

So I did a brunch for myself in 2/3s Forward Captain’s Ready Room. Now you can see why my “Private” Ready Room has a huge table. 51 years of cooking in kitchens & over 15 yrs employee or owner of food service. Yeah, I like to make a nice spread to nibble on!!

MY Star Ship is my home for the remainder of my life & after discomfort of the humans on this planet, be it a conference of people in the room or just me enjoying the sights I find in the Milky Way, comfort will be there.

p.s. on the that thought, NOW YOU understand why movies KEEP MILITARY SPARTAN rockets & star ships in science-fiction movies. If you stop to think of it as a home for SETTLERS, you would see the freedom of space AND THE DEATH TRAP OF 1% ELITE RICH games…

Forward TWO-THIRDS Captains Ready RoomwithTORUSMOON04FB

Enjoy the game tomorrow for those who are watching it. Of you want to play another game, try to guess how many “DIFFERENT photo pieces” I used to make this 2/3s Forward Ready Room & Brunch scene. I had someone try to tell me I just did not KNOW ENOUGH TO KNOW FAKED images. hum…

Maybe a free image design & digital file sent to the winner for their use, commercial or private. Limited to 20hrs work on my part. About 100hrs in this image of 2/3s Forward Ready Room.

As the PRIZE of guessing, I am not going to include having to know the “Tricks I used if a single part is repeated”, i.e. wheat rolls is 3 images of the same set of rolls. So it would count as one image. So the one that comes closest “WITHIN 2 TO 3 IMAGES” wins!

Leave you ENTRY in the comments below.

The Rest of the World PLEASE CONTINUE TO UNITE! It is the only chance you have, ONLY 3% has EVER BEEN NEEDED TO CHANGE IT & even the Spiritual Realm entities understand that they should have done more to help HUMANS LEARN INSTEAD OF MURDERING THEIR Living Environment.

You HAVE NOT KILLED THE PLANET, it has a long time more to Constantly change. But the living environment is destroyed as far as humans are concerned & that most all life on the planet is now doom.
