My Bio

Me: Partially disabled unemployed Jewish Mathematician, who is broadening his horizons.

For now, pasties (not what you think) of my deviations are posted to a small journal on Xanga created primarily for that purpose, with an associated community on Mybloglog located here, as a substitute for an individual gallery feed. The bulk of my commentary will, however, be on my journal here on this site, which I've dubbed "Darkroom without Shadows", as most of what you see came out of a computer, not a vat of chemicals.

That's by necessity, not choice. Given the resources, I'd be playing around with the chemicals and seeing what I could do, but developing my own film in my own real darkroom is one of those pleasures I can't afford.

I am an absolute beginner at this sort of thing, and know that I have much to learn, but am glad to learn it. In addition to the photomanipulation, at some point in the not too distant future, I'll start posting short stories here. I think you'll find the style slightly different from the harsher realism I employ elsewhere, and that I'll be a lot less shy about wandering into speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy, etc) than I would be on other sites.
