Two photos of the day : look within, you crucified fetish South African Model


Model: Miss L., Film: Kodak B/W 400
Style: Editorial Fashion + hints of Fetish Portraiture
.
.
.
.
she was laying flat on her back
waiting to be crucified
I told her
"look within"
She told me
" you psycho old man,
I am trying to! "
I said "the answer
is not written on the ceiling, darling"
so she turned around
and tried
to look inside
this time, eyes buried in her own darkness
so I gave her a hint
I said " look!
look at my heart "
and I pointed at it
hidden in my sleeve
pumping
and getting bruised with each pulse
while trying to reach out
and
then
I
left

Three photos of the day : breakfast, lingerie and making love



Model: Miss S., Film: Ilford B/W 3200
Style: Editorial Fashion Portraits + Sensual Lingerie/Glamour Concepts
.

.
.
I'm going to die tomorrow
there is no time to waste
on appearances
and yet I have a century to burn
for a minute of conversation
with a kind and beautiful soul
.
let the breakfast sit
let the bowls of cereal to flip over
let the shower of milk
..... cover their faces
let the sheets
..... shine their short lived future
..... in a motion of images
let the little black dogs
..... lick their toes
..... and
let the angel of death
..... envy their now

Two photos of the day : lustful erotica and innocent romanticism


Model: Beautiful Miss S., Film: Ilford B/W 100
Style: Subtle Erotic / Erotica + Nude Portrait
.
.
.
As candles burn, quietly
and angels whisper, so gently
as sky looks down, shamefully
as the moon drags its feet, lustfully
as the sun cries out, vigorously
as the mountain stays still, solidly
.
as my lips pray, quietly
as my heartbeat sounds, tremendously
as the poet rests in the corner, lifelessly
as god never stops wrestling evil, tirelessly
as the future holds no secrets safe, mindlessly
as you are the most passionate girl on earth, so generously
as the night goes by, timelessly
.
as the sacrifice stamps life, lovingly
as I look at you so deeply
as I remember this day, forever, so effortlessly
I will treasure those guts and open heart
to no limit, to no extent, oh so feverishly

.

Three photos of the day : the meaning of you and an American Art Model



Model: Miss R., Film: Ilford B/W 100
Style: Subtle Erotic Portrait + Nude Portrait
.

.
.
.
wasteful!
blind!
shameful!
how we can describe the depth of a soul
to a solid rock?
how to survive a conversation
in a solitary moment?
.
let them be
as they won't grasp
the meaning of
you
in this
nor the next
life
and this heart
only beats
when it finally meets
the warmth of your chest
.

open my chest cavity
let the light
bleed into thin air
photograph it
you
have
just
proven
the existence of
you
wrapped around a thought
we call
love
.
burn the thought
throw it away
let the wind
make a mockery of it
and yet
it'll end up
embracing the seed of your being
and hosting
the ground
that you stand on
to burn again
only together
this time

Photo of the day : my lover

Model: Miss T., Film : Ilford B/W 100
Style: Subtle erotic/erotica + nude portrait
.
.
.
.
my lover
spent the night
on hot sands
crying her heart out
and then shot me
(right into my face)
just like the cherry blossoms
when they let go of their connections
after a spring storm
.
the pink elephant in the room
has lost its color
has lost its grandeur
but still, it has its face
.
I do not exist
no more than you do
and maybe only
because you think I do
.
my lover
maybe never understood
the meaning of love
or maybe
she just
misunderstood me
and my definition of it
.

Photo of the day : nude shadows of tattoos, thigh highs and her sensuality

Model: Danish Miss T., Film: Ilford B/W 400

Style: Editorial Fashion + Subtle Nude Erotica

.
.
.
.
.
I was reaching
to a place
that nothing had any consequences
anymore
.
this is the biggest lake
made of fears
tears
sweats and blood
in the smallest star of universe
.
allow the blue feathers of past
to paint a destiny for you
an illusion of happiness
camel-flashed in memories
.
there is a spring in this fall
believe me
we are leaving by choice
but we are taking everything that matters with us
.
let's talk darling
let's negotiate
let's become
let's fight together this tiring never ending pain
.
let's quietly dance
to the harmony of tortures
made of nothing but us
weaved into each other's dreams
.
my echo-less(!) whispers
in the dark alleys of nothingness
goes further than my screams
as I know, you recognize their sincerity
.
so let us whisper now
softly
to the tune of our broken heartbeats
to the pulse of the ground we are standing on
.
destination is nowhere particular
goals are not important
as long as
we
are
together
.
.
.
.

In memory of Mary Kaye, the "First Lady of Rock and Roll"


Subject: Mary Kaye ( Mary Ka'aihue ), Film: Kodak color 400
Style: Editorial Portrait, Music
.
.
.
.
.

"Mary Kaye (January 9, 1924February 17, 2007) , sometimes called the "First Lady of Rock and Roll", was a guitarist and performer who was active in the 1950s and 1960's."*
.
I photographed the great late Mary Kaye few years back for a magazine which doesn't exist anymore and in a hotel (Last Frontier) which has been demolished since then. Things change in the blink of an eye.
.
She was very kind to me on that day. We talked about a project which she was excited about, and it had something to do with Elvis Presley and she was going to meet a few friends and fans after our session.
.
"Mary Kaye (born Mary Ka'aihue) descended from Hawaiian royalty in the line of Queen Liliuokalani, Hawaii's last reigning monarch, and was born into a show business family. She is credited, along with Louis Prima, as being a founder of the Las Vegas "lounge" phenomenon: an all-night party atmosphere where stars and common folk rubbed elbows in a freewheeling environment. Mary Kaye died in a Las Vegas hospital of pulmonary disease on February 17, 2007." *
.
"Norman and Mary Kaye started their singing careers at a very early age in Hawaii, where their father, Johnny Kaaihue, put them in the carnival circuit, performing 10 shows a day. Mary tells me [ LEN BUTCHER ] her dad was the son of Prince Kuhio and was called Johnny Ukulele after the instrument he not only played, but popularized as well.

Mary actually made her debut at age 3, in a grass skirt at a carnival in St. Louis, while Norman, aged 6, strummed the ukulele. Their dad acted as the barker. Quite a life for a couple of young kids. At that time, they were known as the Kaiihue Trio, with their dad making up the threesome. They then became the Royal Hawaiians. "**
.
"In 1949, they found themselves playing the Strip at the Last Frontier, in the days when the Strip was just starting to come into its own, with headliners like Sophie Tucker, Joe E. Lewis and Edgar Bergen. And who was playing conga drums in the lounge? None other than Sammy Davis Jr. " **
.
"Aside from their 15 albums, they played hundreds of nightclubs around the country and the world. They followed Ethel Merman into the Talk of the Town in London; played La Vie En Rose in New York with Harry Belafonte and Buddy Hackett; and filled in for Perry Como on his TV show. Their hits included "Besame Mucho", "Get Happy", "They Didn't Believe Me", "Little Girl Blue", "I'll Remember April", "My Funny Valentine" and "April in Paris". " **
.
"Mary was photographed with her combo, the Mary Kaye Trio, in a 1956 Fender promotional advertisement featuring a new Stratocaster electric guitar. This ash blonde guitar with maple neck and gold hardware later became popularly known as "The Mary Kaye Strat" was the first custom guitar out of the Fender Custom Shop. A slab-board Swamp Ash blond 1954 Fender Stratocaster guitar, the Mary Kaye model, is one of the most expensive and highly collectable guitars in the world. Only a few were produced in 1954, but the color has been re-introduced to the Fender line after the strong international demand for the Mary Kaye color scheme. A limited series Mary Kaye Tribute Strat was issued in 2005 for the 50th Anniversary of the Stratocaster."*

In memory of Danny Gans


Subject: Danny Gans, Film: Fuji color 400
Style: Editorial Portraits
.
.
.
.
.
Daniel Davies Gans (October 25, 1956 – May 1, 2009) was an American singer and comedian who found success as a vocal impressionist. **
.
.
During years I have photographed a few people who are no longer with us.
This is life and we all are looking at such an end without any exception.
However memories and our characteristics can last longer than our lives...at times much longer.
.
I did two photo sessions with Danny Gans few years back...both conducted on the same day.
He was funny, positive and energetic...he was also willing to try various concepts without any hesitations.(such as the second set of images posted above) (the lighting situation was very bad, but we did what we had to do)
.
We were shooting for "the Danny Gans Junior Golf Academy, a program that he founded and operated in conjunction with The First Tee of Southern Nevada and the Southern Nevada Junior Golf Association. " (many Las Vegas kids were introduced and learned the game of golf--and the life skills and core values it instills from this program) *
.
" The Academy and The First Tee of Southern Nevada clinics focus on helping kids to learn the game of golf, but the underlying keys to the clinics are words like respect, integrity, honesty and other words that help guide kids through life. Gans donated financially to junior golf, hosted the annual Danny Gans Partee Fore Kids golf event, and represented Las Vegas by playing in PGA Tour celebrity pro-am events like the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, where he garnered a ton of national air time during the CBS telecast. “Providing kids the tools they can use to learn core values such as honesty, integrity and perseverance is truly a blessing,” Gans said in the past about being involved with the kids of the junior golf program. Gans also was very involved with many other Las Vegas charitable organizations. " *
.
"Gans was a headliner on the Las Vegas Strip and the surrounding area for many years, where he was billed as "The Man of Many Voices." He had been named Las Vegas Entertainer of the Year and his production had also been awarded Show of the Year." **
.
"At one time, Gans was a professional baseball player. He was drafted by the Chicago White Sox after being named an All-America at California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo where he was a Physical Education major."**
.
"Gans started his Las Vegas stay at the Stratosphere Hotel in 1996. He moved to the Rio Hotel shortly thereafter and then on to The Mirage in 2000. Gans was a permanent performer at The Mirage, where the Danny Gans Theatre was built for him."**
.
"In April 2007, a delegation of Kentucky Colonels went to Las Vegas and presented him with the Kentucky Colonel award. At the time of his death he was grossing $18 million a year."**
.
"Gans died on May 1, 2009, at his posh mansion in the Roma Hills Estates in Henderson, Nevada. The cause of death was a drug toxicity caused by the combination of hydromorphone (an opiate, commonly marketed under the name Dilaudid) and a pre-existing heart condition."**
.
.
.
Rest In Peace

The worldwide update on civilians killed in the Iraq war and occupation

http://www.iraqbodycount.org/

Documented civilian deaths from violence

93,096 – 101,596

.

This data is based on 20,960 database entries from the beginning of the war to 18 July 2009. The most recent weeks are always in the process of compilation and will rise further..
.
.
.

For Iraqi females, and children, events involving air attacks and mortar fire were the most dangerous.

In air attacks causing civilian deaths, 46% of victims of known gender were female, and 39% of victims of known age were children. Mortar attacks claimed similarly high proportions of victims in these two demographic groups (44% and 42%).

I stacked them on top of each other
one blue after another
until the moment that nobody
and I mean nobody
could deny the fact
that my stack could not be called
anything but blues
and once I got the blues
I can't let it go
as it is hard to let go
and once I do let go
I get the blues anyway
so what's the point?

nonsense metaphorical circumstances

a black sheep in north pole
hiding in the shadow of self proclaimed self worth
and as the tooth fairy delivering buckets of man made titanium jaws
to the deep of tropical jungles, close to the core of moon
this blue whale started to paint himself all maroon

you fool
stop looking at yourself in the mirror
you age faster as you keep squinting to see your wrinkles
but also maybe it'll help you to see your own faults
as a mirrored image dancing a lovely waltz

Photo of the day : Perfection and a nude Swedish dancer

Model: Miss A., Film: Provia 400
Style: Subtle Erotica + Nude Sensual Editorial Fashion Portrait

.
.
.
.
I wanted to admit to her my affection
although I was pretty afraid of her rejection
I could offer her some kind of protection
but all she was looking for was a simple direction
and to be honest I had no real objection
as I was not sure if she was only a projection
or maybe she already has taken over my heart
.........................with a serious case of infection
.
I did feel this thing between us though,
what do you call it, some kind of connection?!
but would I have any kind of chance to be
..............................in the pool of her selection?
.
I could , forever, look at her beautiful green reflection
This must be how drug addicts feel after an injection
(hope none of them pops in to offer me a correction)
.
oh she could be the start and end of my art collection
she could be my first female president without any election
she could give the sweetest meaning to the word dissatisfaction
or at the end of a long tough road,
...........................................................without any consequences,
..........................................simply smile and show me a redirection
.
let the romantic music begin from the violin section
as her presence might have caused me a soul resurrection
.
I wonder if this is cheesy enough to create
.................................some kind of universal mental rejection
after all, I am taking the long way around the barn to say
.....................................she was pretty close to the perfection
.
