The best Halloween costume I ever had was when I was six, my mom sewed a Snow White costume for me.  While I wore it and it I truly believed I was the real Snow White.  I grew up in a large apartment building in Midtown Manhattan.  So we trick or treated by ringing all the doorbells on each floor and waited to see who opened their door.  Some people would give us candy and some slacker bachelors would give us small change.  The year I was Snow White someone gave me a red apple, just like the apple she was given to fall into a deep sleep in the fairy tale.  When I got home my mom peeled the apple to serve it to me.  Much to my mother’s horror she found a sewing needle in the apple!

I have been noticing a shift in color when I save an image for web.  This page was super helpful for me.

I updated the Graphic Design sections on my site www.sdphotography.net. I got this plastic skeleton from a man selling junk on the beach in Antalya, Turkey.  He practically told me his whole life story, and I pretty much bought everything he had to sell because I felt so bad for him. I thought it would be a fun image to use for Halloween, since it is the season of  both mortality and fun.

I always joke about the possibility of having Rose wine pouring out of a faucet in my house….

Wine flowing from Italian taps is hailed as a ‘miracle’

Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’ Still Haunts Singers on NPR.org

Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene
Im begging of you please dont take my man
Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene
Please dont take him just because you can
Your beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green
Your smile is like a breath of spring
Your voice is soft like summer rain
And I cannot compete with you, jolene

He talks about you in his sleep
Theres nothing I can do to keep
From crying when he calls your name, jolene

And I can easily understand
How you could easily take my man
But you dont know what he means to me, jolene

Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene
Im begging of you please dont take my man
Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene
Please dont take him just because you can

You could have your choice of men
But I could never love again
Hes the only one for me, jolene

I had to have this talk with you
My happiness depends on you
And whatever you decide to do, jolene

Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene
Im begging of you please dont take my man
Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene
Please dont take him even though you can
Jolene, jolene

Jamie Livingston: A Polaroid A Day
10.12.08 | No Comments

Jamie’s photos at an exhibition at Bard College, in 2007 taken by Tom Boettcher

Jamie Livingston started to shoot a Polaroid a day when he was a Senior at Bard Collge in 1979.  He is now deceased, as documented in his last photo from 1997 (the year I graduated from Bard).  However, each image is documented on his site.  I also studied photography at Bard, where I even convinced the head of the department Stephen Shore to let me have a tutorial in Polaroid photography for the full college credit of a regular photo class.  It was an expensive medium, but the sweet thrill of seeing your image immediately made it all worth while.  Now that I carry a digital camera I have almost forgotten the sheer bliss of that magic moment of watching a photo develop before my eyes. Go get lost in his lush visual diary.
