A love note to my wife.

I was listening to the song "Home" by Michael Buble. (Our unofficial theme song, since I average about 150 nights a year on the road.) The verse below sparked an idea.

"And I’ve been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you
Each one a line or two
“I’m fine baby, how are you?”
Well I would send them but I know that it’s just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that"

This image was created in about 5 minutes. I had the idea, jotted down a quick note to my wife and placed it on top of an ironing board next to the window. Light coming through the sheer curtains of the hotel. I had a D60 and 60 micro with me and made the image. BTW... this is a color image.

TRUE LOVE:If someone hates you, yet you still love them back. -Jane Tsai (Member of Chase Alias' Conceptual Art Network on G+)

David S Pollack aka Chase Alias hopes to bring to light with his new series, "Chase Alias' Esoterically Speaking Causes his Reclusively Being, 2010-2012", attempts to convey just how backwards moving our cultural standards seem feels to Chase. As a self portrait photographer he look back in envy at the freedoms which artists used to be able to express themselves without having to worry about cultural and even legal action being taken against them.

Inspiration is for amatuers. The rest of us just show up and get the work done. If you wait around for clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you're not going to make an awful lot of work." -Chuck Close

David S Pollack becomes Chuck Close with the help of some Method Acting skills he attempts to visually and conceptually reinterpret the words and idea of this conceptual artist using this very quote of Mr Close's, Information he has studied and even traits he picked when briefly meeting Chuck as an art dealer in Chelsea before Pollck decided to abandon his Art Dealer to pyrsue his lifes goal to become a Conceptual Artist.

DSC_0263: It's been a very long week.
Have been working really hard on a big project that just went live this morning at 10 AM. Spent most of the day Saturday at work. Taking a break right now, and will be back at it at 1 PM.

Needless to say, Krusty is quite toasted.

This one also goes out to my friend Alvaro in Chile who is probably my biggest Krusty fan. Word has it, he's been working like a dog for a long time too.

Cheers,

Took the 60d back today, I'll pick a new one up tomorrow. In the mean time, back to iphone :(

Thought of this idea a while ago, had it on the backup ideas list. Wanted to recreate the classic scene in the shower from Psycho.

The blood isn't real, so don't panic. Mixed up some red food dye with water and icing sugar. Added the vignette in LR.

Chase Alias' Feelings of Unfamiliarity

...No matter whether or not we are convinced of the information that is present to us, every bit is useless in allying our doubts about the likelihood of the photograph. Analyzing light, density and amounts causes logic and emotion to become dissociated amid a dependance on facts and feelings of unfamiliarity. -Ai WeiWei

...Of 2012

Via Flickr:
Slightly edited picture of a Metro train in Amsterdam, reflected in a puddle. Taken with my HTC Desire.

So, it's 2012 and I don't feel any different than I did in 2011, probably because I didn't have any vacation before Christmas, or at least between Xmas and New Year's, even though I could have really used some time off, and biking through an empty city to work every morning did not help in soothing the pain. To add insult to injury (my knee, ouch :), due to circumstances that made the end of last year a bit less enjoyable for me than I had expected it would be, I was not even able to take my usual free day last Friday, and now the rings under my eyes have given birth to little baby rings over the weekend. I'm already fed up with 2012 and can't wait for the Mayan prophecy to come true, lol ;-D

Of course I'm just kidding, I'm sure 2012 will be an awesome, lovely and beautiful year, and the Mayans never said the world would end this year anyway :)

his is the work of a newbie to flickr. He a friend and needs a little help.. his capture are very interesting but he doesn't know much about post production. So I put this through a simple HDR pass, this is now 320dpi at 16 bit. I tweaked the exposure and gamma and of course gave it a smart sharpen. Take a look at the original on his stream and give hime some comments. Encouragement would be great.
