Photo Update

i went to get my cousin mike
he came over for a few hours. we watched a movie
and took a drive
to make a video
and take some pictures.
apparently my family thinks i'm in some kind of trouble or something.
they don't know what happened to me in the past couple years.
that i broke down and went temporarily completely nuts.
i'm slowly being put back together
but its still hard for me to look people in the eyes
and talk about why i act so strange
and why i dont trust anyone but myself.
and yes, i have taken in some strays.
but they don't bring me down, they keep me inspired.

here are the pictures...

(that can was on the ground. dont worry fam, we were not drinking under the bridge)


oh, and here is the video...Music by the Jedi Mind Tricks

I am like surprised, jealouse and greatful that your family is so accepting of you. My family has a large queer/drag/trans population and everyone is so shitty towards us and about the whole thing. That's just so awesome.

and your pictures are great as ever. so talented, is there anything creative you can't do?

oh, i didn't do the graffiti. i wish. just took the pictures.
my family tries to be supportive, but since my transition, to be honest, most of them act like they dont know me anymore. i mean, they don't ignore me, but they cant look at me or talk to me about the things they used to. it can be very sad and lonely, but i hope it will change in time. i am the blackest sheep in a very large family

Love the pics...Normally people don't care too much for graffiti and so forth, but it's cool when you can see pics of it and actually appreciate it for the art that it is.

Great pics as always.

*Snugs* That's for you. Hope you're doing better.

yeah, i think tags are pretty stupid, like when people just spray out their name on buildings for the sake of vandalism and recognition as a bad ass. i was lucky to find this random bridge where people are constantly doing beautiful graffiti art. the bridge is located behind a building in an industrial area. the spot is about the art and less about vandalism, or so it seems. i love it

wow, boston graffiti... never knew there was so much of it, nice to add some color to the winter urban landscape.

hey, fam can be clueless (who's isn't nowadays, lol), but that's great that with time they are finally getting you and being accepting :D

That graf under the bridge is ILL!
This has me wanting to ride the train to Midway Airport and photograph the graffiti along the way. But it's 10 degrees outside and it's too dark to even attempt photographing w/o any additional backlighting :(

thank you for commenting. i'm glad you like it. i intend to stay friends with you on lj, so maybe when the weather gets better where you are, you can take some photos of midway airport. i would love to see it

Mos def. I've been wanting to photog some graffiti in Chicago for the longest. A day-long excursion is long overdue. When it warms up and stays warm enough to be outside for a long time, I'll plot out a course and see what I can come up with.

HAHA, sorry! I guess I should learn to read a little better.
Feb. 20th, 2008 03:16 am (UTC)

These are amazing. I'm still kind of jealous at the artistic skill of the people around where you live.. haha. My favourite is the "awake" message.
Feb. 20th, 2008 03:16 am (UTC)
