Havisham's cake

Sometimes I react awkwardly when people praise my photography. I take a lot of photos and I rarely censor them. I have a slight temptation to only share the best photos but I like different photos for odd reasons. Of course my favorites are rarely the ones other people like. I've had a few people drop hints that I need to use the flash correctly. I hate flash. It flattens and renders the subject frozen and dead. I prefer my subjects to be a little creepy or obstructed. My photos are almost never reproducible. they are happy accidents. I was taught that a good photographer will get one great photo out of a 36 exposure roll and a really great photographer will sill only get three. The key to photography is to take tons of photo. I do take a lot.

So I give you some interesting photos of interesting people. I went to Aunt Charlie's Hot Boxxx Girls show this last weekend with Tom, Geroge, Michelle mrhavisham, traylordean, pixelstud and his new interest James.

I have been glued to Big Brother UK and had just finished watching the housemates karaoke marathon where four of them sang Total eclipse of the heart for 24 hour on repeat. So when I heard the song starting during Miss Vicki's performance I switched my camera to movie. Now when it starts out, Miss Vicki is just a gathering of sparkles, as the song goes on she becomes more solid and animated. She really is an amazing performer.

I love looking at your photos. Especially the crazy/silly ones because I think they show the real you. Like the one with the flower like antennas. I smile everytime I picture that photo in my mind. And you have a witty sense of humor that shows through them also. So share them all. Good or bad. Because through your photos is how we get to know you.
It's like Allan when he does a pottery firing. What he considers "rejects" are at times the ones I like the most.

Thank you. I am pretty silly.

My three favorites from the night were:

DSC02715
DSC02748
DSC02758

I bet no one else will really like 2715 very much. I just think it looks beautiful and interesting.

Re: Memories
I love that song. I downloaded a Spanish version today from iTunes, it's actually pretty good.

I was at Hot Boxxx Girls Friday night with some friends. After a year of living in the same city, were we actually in the same room together?

We must have been. I was sitting across from the bar towards the front edge of the bar. Were you wearing a wrestling mask?

I was up near the curtain with this gaggle of gays across from a group of out-of-towners. Sadly, I left my wrestling mask at home that night.

So I guess there was just the Irish in between us. Did you like the pictures?

Yes, they're great! I love Vicki, but sometimes I think I love Ginger Snap more.

I love Ginger. I've known her for years. I think she was/is mad at me. She ran away when I tried to get my picture with her.
