new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

or, πάντα ρέι· ουδέν μένει.

leaving syntagma square, athens, greece, on sunday, june 5th, 2011, the 12th day of protest. i went early and left early.  it was so crowded -- a sea of people, as it's being described -- i felt overwhelmed.

i don't care if you're right -- i don't care if you're left.
i don't care if you cooked your taxes.

i don't care if you voted for the inept and the greedy
to get a job -- for your daughter, your lover, yourself.

i don't care about your small-time corruption.
i don't care what you did to survive.
it's nothing compared to what they've taken from you.

the guilt you feel about your transgressions
is part of the plan
to make you feel afraid,
to stop you from doing what's right.

i don't care if you have the perfect solution
or if you have one at all
as long as you have your priorities straight.

voting's not enough. not voting's not enough.
make yourself seen, make yourself heard.

more of my images from syntagma, perpetually updated.

the image is evidence of master thomas hawk's influence rippling through cyberspace.
