Hey folks! Today I took a day-trip to the Mission District in San Francisco with my friend and fellow DAer Kasi (http://carthaki.deviantart.com). The goal of the day was to shamelessly turn peoples' most candid, private moments into a definitive statement about the depth of my humanity (isn't that what all Deviant artists do?). I wanted to share with you guys the proofs of the day's work. I have deleted many of the obvious failures, but most of the images are still there. For me, it has always helped me more to see the original photos in their entirety than the cropped and edited final product. Hopefully seeing the originals of the shoot wi

Hi everybody! I'm still alive :). Thank you for everybody that supported me during my photography "hayday". I'm planning on making a comeback, nearly from scratch, after pursuing my passion for Spanish for the past two years. I am currently living in Palo Alto, California and working as a personal banker, so all of the empathy and passion in my previous work should shortly be replaced by bitterness and vengeance. I wish I were kidding! Anyway, I love you guys! When I look back on my work I feel all embarrassed because of how self-important all of my philosophizing sounds. I can never go back and read my old blogs without that gut-wrenching

Hey folks, I just wanted to put up a small update to anyone who ever wonders what happened to me and this deviant art. I´m currently in Spain, pursuing my dream of speaking the language fluently. Well, I now speak it fluently (in Spanish terms, with enough vulgar terms like "joder" and "gilipollas" and "me cago en la madre que te parió" to successfully compensate for possible grammatical and lexical limitations). I live in Getafe, Madrid. And, worst decision ever, I don´t have my camera with me. Actually, in hindsight it isn´t that bad of a decision because it forces me to be more outgoing and spend more time practicing
