So Long...

The last post was my 100th post on this blog. And this will be my last. For the two people and a few dogs and cats that read this I'm moving to greener pastures, called WordPress. To be short nicer looking blogs, better interface and other nerdy stuff like that. So thanks for reading this one, but please make sure to read the new one, I hope to pour more effort into the new one, showing more pictures, writing more posts, as opposed to just some snaps a little text. Time for a fresh new start.

The Kid

The Kid, an Athens, Ohio musician, local character and all around nice guy. This Saturday he hosted the second annual Gun and Knife Show, a benefit that showcased many local musicians.

Look for a piece about the show and the Athens music scene in the upcoming re-release of Soul of Athens later this month.

Old City, beautiful city, delicious (food-wise) city. Many bright walls.

Mexico 1

Slowly going through all the film I shot in Mexico. 5 rolls Kodak 160VC

I was there for about a week with my girlfriend and her family who took me along. No Cancun or Cozumel here. Mostly cities, and one small beach town. Lovely food, beautiful architecture, and terrible, crippling traffic.

Here's one shot from leaving Mexico City. The elusive empty street.

Jesty Beatz Show

Jesty Beatz Show, originally uploaded by Johnny Simon.

Ohio University's own hip hop star came back to Athens for a show at 19 South this Friday. As much I don't listen to his music, and have never been to this bar (I would say it is slightly notorious) the show was mostly enjoyable. After entering the door, it seemed like this would be something difficult to shoot. The size and density of the crowd was overwhelming to say the least. At times like this I find it almost best to completely tune everything out and realize you are there to make a picture, you need to do what you're there to do, don't let the sweaty drunken masses get in the way of that. Despite a lens that wouldn't stop fogging up I managed to get some alright shots and call it a night.
