Better Than Real Because It's Not.

(Jan 15) I feel like I am returning to the past, except it’s a good thing to feel the energy of a Internet bubble. Just like 1999. And just like 1999 there may be trouble just around the bend. It remains to be seen how much exposure I have to the bubble bursting. Last time I was pretty much unaffected. (I Wish I could say the same about the Great Recession.)

problem dog that he is
I worry I might not be able to take him with me

which perhaps is why it's a problem, quite a lot of time has in fact, passed
I remember this, like it was just a few years ago.

really, i don't
I don’t even remember this boy

this guy, i remember, very well
The past is past. But it makes me who I am today.

i will always miss him
Atlas now is the same age as Billy was in this photo from 1998.

(Nov 7) Part Two of the Bubble Experiments. This is the last.

and driving requires focus
Ironically, the car has made my world smaller.

the familiar
This has sent me in search of

the nearby
Things overlooked

what's in front of my face
In my living spaces.

watching bubbles
So here we are

fizzy water

at a dollar a bottle
The bubbles go by

Springing into being

and then
And then

Just as suddenly

running away
Racing to the top

going flat
And bursting out of existence.

(Nov 7) At last, the end of the Bubble Experiments. Two sets. This is the first.

In the beginning

how many are there?
there were bubbles

you know how many there are?
and more bubbles

quite the many
it was an effervescent experience.

I have not stopped taking photos. I have stopped being able to process them. I have a whole new toolchain I don’t know the first thing about.

Current obsession
Photographing seltzer bubbles

Wrapping up August was another trip to …

Central Park

pete and the tree
Pete wanted me to take his picture next to that tree. So here it is.

Pete knows this girl from his trips to the park without me. I don’t remember her name.

She’s got good balance

attack of the killer bubbles
This poor kid was swallowed whole by a bubble. Nobody tried to save him, they all just watched him get devoured.

tavern on the renovation
The re-becoming something is well underway

leaving the park
And then it was time to leave

But not without a little street time first. (it’s a video)
