  • I’ve got my pre-order of @zachhurd’s A Million Little Lights on iTunes in - do you? Get to iTunes and get you some, when you pre-order you get a copy of Wasteland City featuring the also super talented @georgiahurd

    I shot this of Zach in March 2013 at the Rockwood Music Hall. Seeing friends you’ve known half a lifetime do great things is a wonderful feeling.

    Now, go get some awesome music in your earholes!

  • Friendly reminder that the VSCO Grid is awesome. 

    For reasons passing all kinds of understanding I have been unable to sleep tonight. I decided that I should update my VSCO Grid with a huge chunk of photos I meant to post before I moved and didn’t have time to.

    If you don’t know about the grid you should check it out. There’s a few ways you can do that - one of them is by downloading the app VSCOcam which can be done here: YAY VSCOcam is a FREE totally awesome camera and community based app!

    You can sign up for the Grid inside the app, or you can check it out on the site and see fun stuff on the computer like My Grid (click here). I love this lovely place because it’s straightforward and awesome, just about sharing images with the world, plain and simple. 

    Bonus! They have a team of folks over there that handpick images for their Curated Grid to make sure you’re seeing the best of their community even if you don’t follow someone that it turns out you should!

    Hope you’re having a lovely day/night wherever you are.

    Forty-five years ago today, two human beings first set foot on the moon. On July 20, 1969, the lunar module of Apollo 11 touched down in the Sea of Tranquility, and forever changed how we view our place in the universe. When I think about the fact that four and a half decades ago, at the very moment I am writing this, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were walking on the freakin’ moon, I am humbled and inspired.

    I’ve combined some of my favorite photos from Apollo 11 with some of the actual words spoken by Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins.

    If you’d like to relive the historic mission moment by moment, word by word, and photo by photo, head over to SpaceLog

    Space photographs are my favorite.

    This lovely message was a first attempt at communicating with me. The man also had a photo on his profile that was him holding a curved knife in a menacing manner staring directly at the camera.

    One assumes that by “you’ll do” he means to kill me.

    I have a new tumblr guys. It’s about the adventures in online dating while living in another country. It features the messages that are first attempts at communication from the men in Paris.

    Sometimes it’ll be NSFW thanks to the messages I get.

    All of the messages will be verbatim as they were received. I will not edit or correct grammar and spelling, nor will I embellish the messages. I will not however post photos of the men sending them. I hope you follow it and enjoy.

    what real mens activists look like (see more here)

    We could also add that my tattoos are not an invitation to sex.

    Today at my local Carrefour (that’s a grocery store chain here) I was approached by a man who I would guess was in his late 40s/early 50s. He told me he thought my tattoos were beautiful. Then he immediately segued into telling me - not asking - to come stay at his house and sleep with him tonight.

    While I am not fluent in French I know enough to live here right now. I also know enough to know exactly what he said to me. I also know that he then followed me around the store asking the same question even though I said no firmly. He seemed to feel I didn’t properly understand so he attempted to convey it again in English accompanied by some fairly lewd gestures to illustrate his point. Eventually he seemed to get the message of NO and I made sure he didn’t follow me home.

    I in no way think I was attacked or anything close to it during this encounter. However it speaks to the broader issue worldwide that a man thinks it’s ok to walk up to a woman, proposition her for sex based largely on her appearance and the follow her continuing to do so through a market. This is not ok and is part of that larger issue called RESPECT.

  • Here’s the first of a series of shots. Tauntaun Discovers Earth. The lovely helloamandajeannn (aka Glitter Queen Tauntaun) channeled her inner Hoth native as we roamed the Presidio and the streets of San Francisco.
