Last weekend I went to visit a friend who I hadn’t seen for quite a while, since the eighties except for a brief rain soaked chat at a concert. She was having a Memorial day cook out. While there a couple of the guys and I were reflecting on youth through footwear. It wasn’t a long debate more of a look we are still there sitting side by side they posed their Black Converses and I shot this image. On the way home and today I thought about Memorial Day. I spoke with my daughter during the week and she could never remember Memorial Day being May 30th. It was always the Lite Beer, Gasoline, Consume and waste 3 day weekend. I’ve gotten very old. But what the hell it’s good for the economy, and it vanillarizes the day. Forget history so we and our children can be led down the spin highway to repeat it over and over heck it’s good for the economy. “Those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it!” Ben Franklin. No answers, just questions. peace pjc

For a few days I couldn’t post an image, frustrating now that i can I have scrapped the planned post having been inspired by Andreas comment in my previous post on human rights.
There is more than the surface in each moment, more than packaging. Distractions was an early topic on this blog, distractions from creativity and seeing beyond the surface. I also don’t understand why people are not demanding their rights they settle for a relationship with their love child Master Card. Debt is the biggest distraction and addiction of the human race. So I write to much and take images that are not about the latest greatest upgraded gadget. This makes me…
In a sound bite world
I don’t care to compete
Where shallow is deep
To think beyond the surface a freak
Made of plastic
Bound with elastic
