I believe that no streettog is unaware of this photo by Henri Cartier-Bresson, right? Derrière la gare Saint-Lazare, pont de l’Europe (Paris, 1932) by Henri Cartier-Bresson The photograph above was to Time magazine, “The Photo of the Century”. By then, photographs of puddle jumpers were clichés, but as New York Times remembered, “Cartier-Bresson brings to his image layer on layer of fresh and uncanny detail: the figure of a leaping dancer on a pair of posters on a wall behind the man mirrors him and his reflection in the water; the rippling circles made by the ladder echo circular bands of discarded metal d

Where to find me and my work on the web...

I haven't been sharing a lot here on deviantART, as many of you know because of the lack of community felt here recently.  I don't think it's a stretch to say things have changed and that this isn't the artistic hub it was a few years ago.  Mind you, many improvements have been made, it's just that so many people who I personally interacted with are no longer updating their work here. You're able to find me online and follow my new work as it happens on my facebook fan page.   Head on over and click LIKE because I am hoping to do some sort of giveaway soon. Straight From Camera on Facebook Thank's as always to those of you following me.  I

New York. Heading tomorrow. I had to keep the whole thing a secret from my roommate, who is appearing on a TV show called Operation Vacation.  The secret has been going on for about 3 months, and I have known I would go with him for about two. His work is here - http://bryanmollett.tumblr.com/ Stoked. If anyone wants to pre-buy a print, $50 (shipping in) for a HAND PRINTED IN DARKROOM print, signed on the back. scott.obsidianfox@ gmail.com (no space) - Paypal. I will check back in after. Until then, Ciao.

I am on the Facebook!

Happy Birthday. :) (Smile)
Have a fantastic day. :D (Big Grin)
I wish you so much that all your dreams come true. Most of all I wish you health.

Soon, it's going to be yet another regular day. Birds will sing...cats will meow...dogs will bark...geese will honk and steal peoples stuff.  

A typical, simple, regular day.

However, there is a small, tiny, exception.  The exception is for you, for that is the time when lightning was thrown from above by Zeus to herald your appearance.  Cast in the molten fires of Mount Olympus, and granted with a great creative power, you have been released upon the world to conquer it in whatever manner you see fit!  For it has been foretold by those who can see the future that you are great and true, and that it is your time to shout your joy to the heavens, and revel in the knowledge that on that day, it is written for you to have a Happy Birthday, with many more to come to increase your power and complete your creative conquest!

Also there's hand made cake and ice cream from down the street.  Those folks make some mighty fine cake indeed. Yum! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too

In a few days, it is going to be a relatively normal day...for most.  But not for you.  For on that day...it will be a good day to revel in the moment that you were cast down upon this Earth, summoned and placed here by the mighty Odin to share your talents and your creativity with all.  Let thee rejoice and enjoy this time, and know you are wished a Happy Birthday!  May many more follow!

Also, Odin sends cake, blessed by King Kong and delivered by Godzilla! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too

A few days from today, the history books show an entry.  An entry of mystery, and portent, as the great powers came down upon the Earth, and, in accordance with the wishes of the mighty King Kong, granted the world a boon.  That boon was you.  And lo, let it be said to all that you are to be wished a Happy Birthday upon that day, with the most excellent and amazing of cakes to partake in! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too

History records that, just days from now, a tremendous upheaval took place as the ground cracked and broke apart, tornadoes spun counter to their nature, and even Godzilla bowed as you appeared upon the Earth to grace us with your art. And so it is wished upon you to have a Happy Birthday on that day....and a most excellent cake. :D (Big Grin)  Have your cake and eat it too
