After I get prints of the photos I use a scanner and upload the photos to my computer. Super easy! If you get your film developed through a Lomography store they usually offer to do the scans for you as well so you can have a hard and digital copy.
Love In The Time Of Cholera - Gabriel García Márquez
Drinking at the Movies - Julia Wertz
I recently read this and it was awesome! I think it’s safe to say I have a book nerd crush on Julia Wertz.
Shot with my Diana F+ during my recent trip back to Detroit.
Punk rock show flyers + Swedish influenced design = eye balls exploding. I heart Mike Joyce.
Tested out my new Diana F+ fisheye lens the other day when I was in Venice, I think I might be in love.
Occupy LA raid - Nov 29, 2011
I’m pretty sure this goes down as one of the most bizarre and fucked nights I’ve ever experienced. What started off as a night hanging out at The Redwood with some friends ended with the Occupy LA raid. By the end of the night I had talked my way out of getting arrested, watched innocent people get run down/arrested by the police and had a friend get beaten and arrested by the LAPD for taking photos of the event. (You can read about that here.)
This was shot at the corner of First and Broadway. The police had already cleared out the main gathering area for Occupy LA and had moved on to this corner. They had given a five minute warning and told everyone to move out of the street and onto the sidewalk otherwise you would face arrest. Most of the people, at least those around me felt that they were safe on the sidewalk, they had done what the police had requested. About halfway into the video the police get to business and charge up the street taking out those who had refused to vacate the street. However, instead of just clearing out the street the cops branched out and started arresting the people on the sidewalk as well. They circled around the crowd and trapped people who moments earlier thought they were doing exactly what the police had asked them to do. At that point I had to stop filming as the cops were beginning to arrest the people around me and I needed to get the hell out of there. My plan to get out of there almost went perfectly except for the part when the cop grabbed my arm to arrest me. I still have no idea how I managed to talk this cop into letting me go. I was surrounded by people freaking out and cops arresting them. All I remember saying to him was that I wanted to get to the top of the street and that I wasn’t trying to start shit with him. I don’t even know if I ever said anything else or if i just kept repeating what could have been the worst argument for letting someone walk away. For whatever reason he decided to let go of my arm and let me go but not without first shoving me with both hands directly into another cop.
The next morning, listening to the mayor and police pat themselves on the back for a job well done was one of the most disgusting things I had ever heard. There was nothing good about what went down in Los Angeles that night. Hundreds of people, interested in having a peaceful protest, were arrested and abused by those who are supposed to protect us and our rights. I hope the mayor and LAPD have figured out how to wipe those smug looks off their faces, if not there are hundreds of pissed off people ready to do it for them.
