After a very long break from blogging, and more specifically photography, I have decided that I want to return to share my images and reopen the dialouge that this page once fostered.
That being said, It might be a little while longer for me to get my camera fixed, so in the meanwhile i think I will shoot some film.
I hope everyone is well.
can’t we all have the things we want.
so close yet so far away.
cliche, but true.
nonetheless, I digress.
Welcome to the latest installment of WORDONPLAYS.
Thanks for your time.
I try to make it worthwhile for
those read and look.
wanna start off with an old photo.
just good times in Tahoe.
Drive Slow Homie.
You neva know homie.
ahhhhh damn that was a great weekend.
The next bunch are from back over break. So a friend of my moms is from Florida, that lady’s best friends daughter has a friend that wanted to look at transfering to colleges in LA, so obviously they gave me a call to show them around.
We went to more place in LA in 3 days that I have done in years.
Magnolia in Hollywood, Red White and Bluezz, Lucky Baldwins, USC, some little theater, In-N-Out, Mijares, The Getty, The Fahey-Klein Gallery, sitting next to Seth Green at a small cafe, a tour of celebrity homes, Santa Monica beach, Pek’s house, The Ice House, and Margarita Jones.
here are some frames.
It was great to take the ladies to the gallery, because I had never even been there before. Thanks j.
Alana took this next one, a nice self portrait.
The rest are just random times over break.
M4 Carbine. SWAT issue. Call of Duty has never been the same.
scope, grip, light and laser. pwnage.
and there you go.
Have a nice day,
till next time.
Gonna drop one on ya.
just a little bit.
just ta see if you like it. . .
a few tips first. 😉 pun intended.
wake up earlier, its rewarding.
listen to CRS, Justice, Air, Cinematic Orchestra, Portugal The Man, and Rogue Wave and Jose Gonzales.
drink more. who was I kidding?
Watch Weeds, The Office, Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia, The L Word, and of course, Entourage.
Keep up on current events, balances you and keeps you from being a zombie to one aspect of your life.
Screw it, watch anything HBO has to offer. Especially in the next five years.
Go to Vegas at least once a year.
explore the outdoors around you,
investing in a DVR or TIVO is like diversifying your life portfolio.
ride a bike or walk if you can. LA is the exception.
Never give homeless people money.
Give them food,
gift certificates to someplace they can get food,
or give them your attention.
Not all problems can be solved with money.
but what do I know.
here are some frames ya little rascals.
Missing DC a bit. or at least the friends I made there. Be back at the end of Oct.
Miles Lavin everybody.
Playing softball in front of the capitol was amazing.
played with a former Congressman, Rep. Istook.
. . .
real mature Rondell. . .
Now for some VT deep cuts.
That place changed me for the better.
Now some hometownchicoshots.
“I get by with a little help from my friends” – Ringo Starr.
whole lot this time.
Congrats to my Cousin Amy Lerseth and her husband Brian.
She just recently gave birth to twin boys.
I wish their family the best.
They must be the proudest parents. It gonna be “active” in a couple of years in that household.
And here are some other frames I’ve made over the past year, including some recent ones in DC.
Red Line. open your eyes. DC, Summer 2007.
crippled homeless man. DC, early morning. Summer 2007.
Brian almost caught this one. The river,Chico CA. Spring 2007
Boston, near City Hall. Spring 2007.
Morning cleanup crew. DC. Summer 2007.
The “boot”. I mentioned this in an earlier post this year. Early Spring, 2007.
Players that win the game drink beer from the boot in celebration. most get sick soon after.
This photo almost got me arrested.
Notice the cop walking towards me.
I didn’t see him, so he ran after me down the street, and forced to show ID, where he called in my information to be put into a database.
I fully protested, stating that photography was not a crime, which it is not, nor it ever should be, and he told e that times have changed.
He may be right, but that still makes him a complete tool. It was a damn shame.
Had he asked me for my card I would have resisted, and then we would have had a real problem.
What happened wasn’t right, and I hope something changes soon.
Ben Franklin famously said “Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety”
I could not agree more.
I am not a terrorist. Photography is not terrorism.
construction site. DC. Summer 2007.
DC imitating Gotham City. Summer 2007.
Bridge near Adams Morgan/Zoo. DC. Summer 2007.

About a month ago I finished finals.
Packed my things
and left Chico
I had a really nice trip planned
to see some family and friends
it was a great little trip
wish I could have made it longer
but those I didn’t see
on the way down
I will hopefully see on the
here are some images from along the way.
this is MARSHALL, my little cuz, and his dad Brian.
I also met up with my Uncle Lou, who drives a Morris Minor these days. Don’t feel like explaining it so just google it, it’ll be worth your time.
We had just picked up his dog from Petco.
In Santa Cruz, I met up with Fabi and Jenny, good friends from way back.
They live in an amazing part of the city, and we spent the better part of two days either driving around the cliffs, or drinking.
They had a fun social group, I felt pretty at home in SC.
Jenny on the right, the young lady’s name on the left eludes me. nice glass.
Jenny’s hermit crab. Lets call him clarence, even though that most likely not his name.
Fabi’s room. much dancing there was.
After Santa Cruz I headed down to see my lovely cousin Suzie. I took a few frames of her driving the very same Chevy she drove in high school.
She even let me drive it, its quite different zen ze audi. handled like a damn tank, but man did I feel good driving that car.
The car suits her so well, she knows everything about it too. But the transportation she really likes is her Harley. Love that she cruises on a hog.
oh, and she would want to say “God Bless America”
so there it is.
This story will continue at a later date, I just want to put this out.
ENJOY this lasty one, I did.
Hail to the Chief.
For those Dena heads, check out my shirt. That means you Kyle.
Catch ya on the flipside.
