It really annoys me the way I was deliberately air brushed out of this picture.Not only is it a bad example to children, but it stopped me from gaining worldwide recognition.

The Id, a photo by John Suler's PhotoPsychology on Flickr.

Via Flickr:
According to Freud, the Id is the core of the human psyche. Influenced by the newly emerging evolutionary biology of his time, he believed that humans, like animals, are born with sexual and aggressive drives that determine all of our behaviors. However, to live in an orderly fashion within a community, and to build civilization, we had to learn how to control and redirect these primitive drives of the Id.

Another in my series of shots
of John, a homeless man
photographed by others here
in this flickr-world (Discarted -
who has done great photos of
him). He was sitting on a bench
in front of the old
Roosevelt Hotel
at 7000 Hollywood Boulevard -
a hotel that, like Hollywood,
has been glitzy and
glamour-packed and then
down and dark and
then up again.
John had little to
say but consented
to be photographed,
and I took many,
of which this
is one.

Explored...again...what is happening :D

This picture is about let go and breaking free. It's about say goodbye from all the things that bear us down. Sometimes we have to escape from these things.

When I showed my mum the picture, the first thing she asked was:
Where do the ropes go?
I don't know where they go. I want you to think about that. I don't want to make a picture that screams 'Escape'. I want people to think about this!

I hope you like it :D

On June 19, 2010, our 1999 Volvo S70 turned over 200,000 miles. We ordered it from the factory and took delivery of it in Mishawaka, Indiana with 10 miles on the clock in the spring of 1999.

Eleven years later, here we are. Just north of Mount Pleasant, Michigan, on the US-127 expressway, northbound on the way home from Michigan State University with Evelyn, my oldest daughter.

That's just over 18,000 miles per year.

This is a shot taken at the rather new library Jacob-und-Wilhelm-Grimm-Zentrum in Berlin.
This shot was taken on a Sunday morning and to my surprise the library was rather busy. So whoever thought that Berlin students have only party in mind, they prove us wrong!

Further info on this architecture:

The Jacob-und-Wilhelm-Grimm-Zentrum is the new central library of Humboldt University, located on famous old boulevard Unter den Linden, near Museum Island and Brandenburg Gate. It's the biggest freehand library in Germany and contains 2 million books, all of them publically accessible and not in closed depots. Berlin-based Swiss architect Max Dudler won the competition, in which 277 architects participated, with a typical 'Berlin style' rationalist building. Behind a strictly orthogonal façade, the visitor encounters the big reading hall, which refers to the terraces of the Hanging Gardens of Semiramis. The space is illuminated by natural roof light and contains green desks and lamps with stone covers for 250 people, all designed by the architect. The atmosphere of the hall breathes a similar spirit as the big library hall by Labrouste in Paris. Most of the 1250 workstations are located directly at the façade with tremendous views over the city.

The replica cannon was donated by the Lake Wales Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. It originally stood on the north west lot of the Lake Wales Public Library, between the 1960 Library and the Chamber of Commerce Building.

It was moved to the grounds of the Depot Museum, where it still stands.

Polaroid Land Experimental model 002 w cover

Via Flickr:
Polaroid Land Experimental model 002

I was wondering if any camera buffs could provide the history behind one of my Polaroid cameras. It appears very similar to a model 104 but has a dark grey face and is labeled "Polaroid Land Experimental model 002"

It belonged to my late uncle Kennith Halliday, who was the long time head chemist for Bendix Corp. in New York. It would not be at all surprising if he had known or worked with Edwin Land.

I wrote to Polaroid Corp. and they could find no information on the camera. Sue Gagnon at Polaroid wrote me back. "Wow!!! What a picture. It does look like an early pack film camera. It appears to be a prototype. I have no details about anything with that name. You have a one of a kind. Call me if you need to know how to find out if it works. We could figure that out."

The Land List: An Ongoing Project in Cataloging Polaroid Cameras, has been helpful and posted my information here: Polaroid pack film camera model 104

With any luck someday soon I will discover the history behind this unique camera.
