Opening Move


Part II: 8:10



Josh, bringin’ it home.

Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Orester 135/2.8 -film

Meet Murderer. But we call him Murdy. 😁 Kitty tongue! So adorable. And some of the most beautiful sea green eyes I’ve ever seen for any cat. 💕

For anyone wanting to shoot with a film lens in our technologically and digitally-advanced era, get yourself an M42 film lens, along with an M42 screw on adapter. It’s a thin ring that joins the DSLR camera with the film lens, marrying the new with the vintage/old. You can vintage it up in Photoshop, etc.; but there’s something about a photo that’s shot with an actual vintage film lens that gives it a true vintage look and vibe- SOOTC (straight out of the camera).

I was close to selling this lens recently but then I saw this test shot and decided to keep it. (I have another 135 telephoto film lenses, a Super Tak, which I love, but it’s a 3.5 rather than a 2.8. I just can’t part with either. The 2.8 is especially great in low-light.)

Today is dark and rainy; perfect for popping in the ear pods and getting my gaming on. 😎

Talking to (with) Jesus

My X contacted me yesterday, out of gas; thought I’d help him out & drive a few bucks over to him. (I made a promise to his Mom on her deathbed that I’d look after him, and so I do.)

Siri sent me to the wrong Circle K gas station where he was supposed to have been working that morning. I arrived to news crews everywhere and mayhem.

From our local news channel:

NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WAVE) – “Officers shot a suspect in a double murder at a gas station in New Albany after he allegedly sped away in a car, crashed it, ran into a restaurant, and abducted a woman on Monday morning.”

Yeah, THAT happened. I was unsuspectingly driving to that same gas station after the double homicide had happened- talking to Jesus, as usual.

Takeaway: It helps to stay prayed up, man.

Crazy times!

Time passes…

Out of Office

Currently scouring the universe in search of me.


Some days I feel like I’m in the blush of ownership

Other days, I’m not even a welcome ghost afforded to roam the halls

A vagabond soul with nowhere to go

You keep me here, with you

High and dry

Day and night

Eating the crumbs that you don’t know you’ve dropped

When Life is a Shitshow

Have some lemonade and carry on…

Beautiful sky. Ten long years ago. 7 pic stitch.

The day my (estranged) niece called me a bitch, the most incredible sky broke out in colours above me. I think God was trying to tell me something…and that is: When things cannot possibly seem to be able to get worse, THEY CAN AND PROBABLY WILL. But hold on! Because just as things got worse, they’ll also get better. And when riffraff exits your life, LET IT. You can focus on the riffraff, or the incredibly beautiful sky above. It’s good to remember that no matter what’s going on in our lives, that sky above us is still beautiful, no matter what. LOOK UP. Let the riffraff go and look up, high above.

TLDR: When life is a shitshow, be patient. It will get better.

Day by Day

I move away from the madness

Storm the fort

Day by day

Taking red

Then yellow

Green and Blue

Until the great black sea

Has been swallowed up

By the rainbow
