Maybe you’d prefer pictures of people in Paris instead of Rome? Maybe you don’t like the French, you think they’re rude? Maybe you prefer stolen memes? Maybe you hate sitting outside with a cig and something good to drink? Maybe someone else should write these?

Ohhh another 20 yesterday unfollowed. Maybe you like pictures of Rome better in color? Maybe you don’t like pictures of Rome at all. Maybe you don’t like Italy? Maybe you don’t like pasta? You don’t photographs in black and white? Maybe you don’t like abstract architectural pictures of sides of 3000 year old buildings? Maybe you don’t like pictures of anything? Maybe go f**k yourself?

I was in Rome last year in November. Caput Mundi. Did or do people really call it that? I was there once before when I was 20. But didn’t remember much. Aside from the things you are supposed to do when you’re in Rome for the first time. Wild to think of a city and it’s inhabitants of that many years. I was there before Bush and everything that followed and being there now— it felt strange. The birthplace of Western civilization. I couldn’t help but think of where we are now and how Rome fell, the middle ages began. Walk around and like new york there were people from everywhere. The vibe was relaxed, weather was warm. Palm trees mixed in with a 28 century old city.

LIFE ITSELF
Back when the grass grew tall
and the rooftops sank under slugs of moss, like stones oxidizing in the coastal air, and our town
gaped with deer prints, I stood in the dunes
believing jet streams were staging a show
just for me, for what I would come to, and find there, and though I had seen little, I felt more and more that the contrails that cut the sky to pieces
spoke to me of life itself, of life and nothing less, before the wind picked up, forcing everyone inside, behind closed doors and back to their lives. - Will Schutt - I published this great poem in the first Dialogues: 36 Photographs & 20 Poems. A book I did w Will and @_jordansullivan_

Jenn @junesy picked this photograph to be in all the guest rooms at her new hotel The Blake. It’s also one of my favorite pictures I’ve taken in LA. Aside from and in the next slide you can see it in a spread from what’ll hopefully be a book at some point. From a 10+ year slash never ending project. Thanks Jenn!

This isn’t the poem we used in Pacific Peace Piece but I keep coming back to it. I wasn’t surprised by the shooting in Pittsburg. Sort of expected it. That’s not to say I’m not upset about it. Hard to not think about it. I’m not sure it’s going to change anything. I also wonder how we’ll remember this dark time. Because we all remember how things happened a little differently. Differently from how they happened maybe. And also differently from our own perspective. We tweak it a little. To fit our own narrative. And that’s probably ok. I don’t know. Poem is below and by Carl Phillips.

How I say it happened
may not be how it happened. In that slum
that the mind lately feels like, I’m walking as if
forever toward where the chestnut trees flanking
the brokenly-lit boulevard – what’s
left of it – come now to a point, now
to the never-to-be-reached conclusion I suspect
they’ve meant, all along. It’s a slum, but the sea
hugs it as it does so many places prettier, emptier
of such distractions as fear and at least the more
galvanizing varieties of sorrow, hence the not-so-muffled
crashing of waves not far from here: blue dart,
shattered crossbow…Keeping it all somehow differently alive,
and close, that’s the point, someone told me once –
who? and the point of what? The less I understand myself,
the more I understand others, which I used to think wasn’t
saying much, but there are nights it can seem as good a road as any
maybe toward compassion, even if half
washed away – the road, I mean; not compassion. I don’t know
how the better parts between two people become the first forgotten

I like Van Morrison’s version of Sinatra’s That’s Life. Ridin’ high in April, shot down in May. We’re a flawed country. Always have been. And that’s ok. That’s real life. I started taking pictures because I wanted to know why people made the decisions they made. Not because I cared so much about the actual why. I just wanted to know, to know. I needed to know. A compulsion to know.
But today, f**k. Today was hard to comprehend. A coordinated attempted assassination of two former presidents, on our media, among others… I don’t talk politics much on this app but where do we go from here? I’m not sure. Here’s a picture outside El Paso. Maybe Beto can pull out a win in Texas. Maybe we’re all f**ked.

I can see how easy it is to confuse estrangement with
what comes before that, what’s really just anotherform of being lost, having meant to spell out­— wordlessly, handlessly—I’m falling, not Sir,
I fell. As for emptiness spilling where no one
ever wanted it to, and becoming compassion, as for how that happens— What if all we do is all we can do? - this is a fragment of the poem by Carl Phillips thats featured in Pacific Peace Piece

So this 8x10 print is for sale and comes with the book through @photoeyebooks. It’s printed on the same sort of translucent vellum paper as the book. I framed it in this thick acrylic frame.
