the open sea

these photos, even though they are crappy, may be my favorite I’ve ever taken… although I’m not sure why… it’s not like i’m not trying to be artistic or anything with my pics which are usually crap photos taken with an iphone with a snarky comment or two… and I don’t feel like “The Open Sea” is a that clever of an analogy for hordes of silhouetted humans holding up iphones… but there was something spooky going on at this exhibit. . something weird and cold and quiet and inhuman… with the blues and blacks and thick square borders with the blurred tanks holding primeval critters in the background and the phrase “The Open Sea” …

it felt so… deep


The fish department in the Whole Foods in Scottsdale, Arizona, a city in the middle of the desert. Thankfully there was a sign that helped me navigate the waters of sustainability.

Do not think about sin, he thought. There are enough problems now without sin. Also I have no understanding of it.
