A rendering intent

These intents should be created by the profile maker so that pleasing images occur with the perceptual intent while eye-catching business graphics occur with the saturation intent.

Peter’s work and his themes are so vital right now and he has made very similar work for thirty years, with variation of course, but really committed guy, and work stays so fresh

spring in bethesda is pretty nice
i bet i could scroll through the past years of my blog and there is always a post of going home and looking at flowers

 photo IMG_2733_zpse608baba.jpg
and weeds

 photo IMG_2730_zpsff52efdb.jpg
the dog is wondering what i am doing

looking for what tree will win best in show

 photo IMG_2743_zpseb2baf94.jpg
so i had to go to the Tidal Basin

 photo IMG_2745_zps2d9575ee.jpg
i feel bad cuz i keep UGH taking ambien to fall asleep and then waking up to bizarre social media posts i dont remember making

 photo IMG_2746_zpsc36578eb.jpg
some Ambien people like eat tubs of mayo or like drive cars and dont remember
i participate in the internet and dont remember

 photo IMG_2747_zps7993866c.jpg
taking photos of the people taking photos helped me feel less touristy
and like i had friends

 photo IMG_2750_zps7e24656e.jpg
i guess it makes waking up every day an adventure

 photo IMG_2751_zps97b4e890.jpg
but not an adventure i want!

 photo IMG_2753_zps71d9519e.jpg
what ya squeezin over there?

 photo IMG_2754_zpsb158b64e.jpg
i dont actually say anything personal on my blog tho it might seem so

 photo IMG_2757_zpsfbded667.jpg
and anyone who participates in social media knows about persona vs personality

 photo IMG_2758_zps4bbae991.jpg
but i had an artist not want to be in a show because i said something snippy about their work on my blog years ago

 photo IMG_2759_zps9219d99e.jpg
and i hope i hope i didnt make others mad at me or think i suck

 photo IMG_2760_zps1007e77d.jpg
it seems such a cop out to be like “that’s not me” but my real life and my real personality are really different, even just in the fundamental way that in real life i am fairly private and fairly quiet and not the exhibitionist that performing your personality for everyone so often would necessarily suggest

 photo IMG_2763_zpsbc36a946.jpg
i think i am just mad/embarassed, madbarrassed, because i occasionally break character or something and then i worry it makes my character seem real when its not

 photo IMG_2764_zpsab42a788.jpg

 photo IMG_2766_zps83fb2f77.jpg
sorry im being vague.
i tweeted a week ago somethign mean about hating something
and in real life i dont even use the word hate, i hate hate!
i dont hate anything
except hate

 photo IMG_2767_zpsccf703fe.jpg
i tried to use the two days to just back up a step and think about some gallery business but i stepped so far back i fell into flowers

 photo IMG_2770_zpsf17cfeec.jpg
dad just sat on bench but he has seen these many years every year of his past 82 years so that is ok

 photo IMG_2772_zps5091101b.jpg
spring is for the young
or something

 photo IMG_2773_zps456662cf.jpg
but not for me

 photo IMG_2775_zps79c2701c.jpg
tree orgy, fecundity, reproduction, FLOURISHING bleh

 photo IMG_2780_zps662089f6.jpg
i feel no fellowship with man or beast

 photo IMG_2781_zpsf18782fc.jpg
i want to enjoy spring by myself
and throw my smartphone into the tidal basin

 photo IMG_2783_zps2fa50d6e.jpg
and then at the same time spring makes me have a crush on everyone walking down the street its just UGH chemical or something

 photo IMG_2788_zpsd8313a35.jpg
oh deer
as kembra would say

 photo IMG_2792_zps44992824.jpg

 photo IMG_2795_zpsc63209ee.jpg
i like this cat best

 photo IMG_2796_zps2e454dc8.jpg
this one sucks
i can’t pet any of them anyway so who cares

 photo IMG_2798_zpsb40a5a8f.jpg
what good is a cat you can’t pet?

 photo IMG_2803_zps665296c5.jpg
i could extrapolate on that last question to bring up many other issues but i will refrain

 photo IMG_2805_zps09cdf2ef.jpg
i have no urge to make my feelings supersaturated
or to share anything resembling a real emotion

 photo IMG_2810_zps4216369e.jpg
in fact i have no urge to feel anything at all
i would prefer a state of non-feeling
i would prefer to pack myself into a sofa

 photo IMG_2812_zps8da177eb.jpg
but since i dont get to do that i will pack myself into gallery

 photo IMG_2815_zpsd926ff64.jpg
there is plenty of room within it for many people even besides me to get lost in it and to lose their personhood and become part of a un-individuated work blob

 photo IMG_2817_zps1c8e9085.jpg
i made un-individuated chicken ratatouille to entertain my parents

 photo IMG_2818_zps458edf84.jpg
and potatoes and goat cheese spinach salad

 photo IMG_2821_zps28c27f8b.jpg
my camera was dying so there is crappy DC graffiti but it kinda crapped out when the graffiti got good

 photo IMG_2828_zps057f84fa.jpg

 photo IMG_2829_zps9e3f83fe.jpg
ooh caught that VIZIE on the reverse!

 photo IMG_2834_zpscfae96f1.jpg
does smell

 photo IMG_2835_zps1c422db2.jpg
i always take a phtoo of this cuz it is when the train is going real slow
highlighting my worthlessness as a high speed graffiti photogrpaher

 photo IMG_2836_zps70fdc1f4.jpg

  1. i don’t even remember how i found this blog… but i subscribed on my RSS feed a long ago time and i just wanted to say that i always thoroughly enjoy your every post. and this one was especially riveting. thanks for sharing all the fantastic artwork and thought-provoking musings.

  2. I was taking ambien for insomnia a few months ago and it sucks. Even if u sleep, you feel f’d the next day. What worked was quitting drinking/smoking w33d for about six weeks, exercising and getting through a ‘stressful’ residency. Sounds rough but it really mellowed my shit out. 🙂 ps now I can drink again

  3. Oh, also I got a Rx for Trazadone which can be used at low doses as a sleep aid. I just know how much insomnia suks…
